In unprogrammed Quaker meetings, there being no paid clergy, the clerk and assistant clerk are resources for general information and overseeing that meeting business is handled. Much of the work of the meeting is done in committees.
Peace & Social Concerns Committee
The Peace & Social Concerns Committee educates the meeting community on matters relating to our peace testimony and on Quaker witness in our community and the wider world. An outgrowth of Peace & Social Concerns, Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN), coordinates our work with other congregations on the Main Line to help homeless families.
The Outreach/Fellowship Committee works on increasing our visibility in and connections with the surrounding community. They also provide refreshments each First Day, as well as the monthly Fellowship lunch.

The Landscape and Grounds Committee takes care of the physical plant of the meeting, scheduling routine tasks (mowing grass, shoveling snow) and periodic clean-up days.
The Library Committee sees to the stocking and maintenance of the meeting’s library.
The Nominating Committee nominates members and attenders to positions on the other committees, presenting its recommendations to Meeting for Business for approval.
Care and Counsel Committee
