4th Sundays — ETG Book Café — 208 Bay Street, Staten Island, NY 10301

The store will be closed. Knock and someone will let you in. 

2nd Sundays — South Beach

Directions Sunday, October 10, 2021 — Meeting about a quarter mile (440 yards) northerly of the end of the Franklin D. Roosevelt Boardwalk. 

By car: Nearest parking lot is at the corner of Ocean Ave & Drury Ave (most NE’ly lot at South Beach). Walk northeasterly along the walk/bikeway about 100 yds to Fort Wadsworth Sign. Then skip to the walking directions below.

By bus: Nearest stop is Father Capodanno Blvd @ Robin Rd (on the S51 line). From there . . .

The link immediately above would take you from the Robin Lane bus stop to the Fort Wadsworth sign next to the walkway/bikeway (ie, a point standing about 100 yards northeasterly of the end of the boardwalk). 

Walking directions from the Fort Wadsworth sign, turn right — toward the water. Then turn left and walk northeasterly (toward the Bridge) along the shoreline about 440 yards ’til you see a long rectangular timber lying parallel to the shoreline (that would make for a good bench for half a dozen people).

When you come:

You will know Meeting for Worship is in session if no one verbally greets you when you enter. That does not mean you are not welcome. You are welcome!

Meeting for Worship is not necessarily completely silent. Participants may be moved by the spirit to respectfully share vocal ministry. That includes you, even when it’s your first meeting; but please note that vocal ministry is not a sermon nor a debate, nor is it idle chatter. It’s only the concise expression of “that of God within.” It is customary for an individual to speak no more than once during a single Meeting for Worship.

For more info: Please call or text the clerk at 917-617-4207 or email
