Chatham-Summit Quaker Meeting

Flag as Inappropriate

<p>Compared to most Chatham institutions of worship, Chatham-Summit Quaker Meeting is relatively new. Its roots go back to the 1920s.</p>
<p>Its original founders met in Summit before moving to the current meeting house, which was built in 1970 (it was partially renovated in 2007). The meeting has no paid clergy members; its philosophy, according to its Web site, is that "all members are potential ministers."</p> <p>Sunday worship is at 11am. During July and August, it is at 10am. Children are invited to attend the first hour of worship before retiring to Sunday school. Care for infants and toddlers is also provided during services.</p> <p>The church compiles what it calls "official minutes"—statements that describe the collective beliefs of the church on a variety of issues. It has recently composed minutes supporting the abolition of New Jersey's death penalty and favoring recommendations to close the federal prison at Guantanamo Bay.</p>
