Visioning Project Report

In 2010 and 2011, Baltimore Yearly Meeting undertook a project to consider the vision of the Yearly Meeting community. As a part of that project, members of the ad hoc Visiting Ministers Committee led a visioning session at each Meeting. The report of the visioning session at Adelphi Friends Meeting is available here.


Easter at Adelphi Friends Meeting

At the end of First Day School, Adelphi Friends Meeting has its traditional Easter Egg Hunt for the children. The smallest children search for hidden eggs in the fenced playground area. Older children range in the areas in front of and behind the Meeting House. Young Friends are responsible for doing the egg hiding during Meeting for Worship.
