Food For Friends Outreach


The NJELC Congregational Care and Outreach Committee decided to take a week and provide a prepared meal on Wednesday, July 12, 2017 at The Schoolhouse at Richland Friends Meeting at S. Main Street & Mill Road in Quakertown. 


Needed:  People to make baked Ziti and desserts to help feed 60+ people on Wednesday, July 12th at
6:00 p.m.  The meal will include bread, salad and dessert too. We also need volunteers to help serve and clean-up at the Friends Meeting House.  We should arrive around 5:00 p.m. and should be done by 8:00 p.m.  Please contact Bill Young at 610-554-1294 (cell) or email:, if you are interested in helping. This Outreach is supported by a Thrivent Action Team which should cover the cost of the meal.   


FOOD FOR FRIENDS - 2nd, 4th and 5th Wednesdays Free meal served 6 :00 p.m. For over 13 years, Richland Friends Meeting, together with 7 other church or school groups, have been hosting Food for Friends.  This important program provides cooked, nutritious dinners and social interaction for our neighbors in need, free of charge. Starting with the planning of the meal to feed at least 50 people, each organization shops and prepares a balanced nutritious dinner complete with dessert.  This is a wonderful hour for many of our community to “break bread” in fellowship with others who also have the need or the desire to do so.  On average, 1,200 dinners per year are served to the many young and old in the Quakertown area.  All are welcome. The dinners are held every 2nd, 4th, and 5th Wednesday of every month at 6:00 p.m. in the Schoolhouse at Richland Friends Meeting. website:






Prayer Shawls


There is a basket of beautiful handmade prayer shawls in the Narthex.  If you know of someone who is having hard times (illness, sadness, troubles), please take one for them. 


These shawls are meant to show a tangible message of God's love and the care and concern of friends from New Jerusalem.
