Third Haven Monthly Meeting
State of Meeting Report 2019
Third Haven Monthly Meeting (THMM), located in Easton, MD, continues to be an active and engaged Quaker spiritual community. We have bi-weekly meetings for worship on Sundays at 10AM and Wednesday at 5:30PM. There is an active children's program on Sunday and other offerings through the week. Currently there are 165 members. Attendance on First Day ranges between 55-79. We have 15 children under 21. Our facilities were used 343 times in 2018. In 2019, we held 2 memorial services for members and had one wedding.
Our website; http:www.thirdhaven.org. is up-to-date and informative. On this website, one can easily find annual reports by all committees. Our committees include: Pastoral Care, Worship and Ministry, First Day School, Outreach, Property and Grounds, Library, Budget and Finance, Scholarship, Facilities Use, Hospitality, Testimonies and Concerns and Nominating. The committees are vibrant and innovative and their work has been outstanding this year. Their programs have deepened our relationship in community and our spiritual growth. We have formed an ad hoc committee for long range planning to explore improvements to our campus to adjust for current and future growth.
This year, THMM will follow the guidelines written by Quaker Life Council and published on the Philadelphia Yearly Meeting (PYM) website for our State of the Meeting Report. These queries allow us to consider what we have accomplished in 2019 and where we would like to put our energies going forward. Final approved document will be submitted to PYM by May 2020.
