Everyone is welcome to attend our Meeting for Worship, held every First Day/ Sunday at 10:30am.
Our Meeting for Worship begins as the first person enters silently, sits down, and turns her or his mind toward Spirit/God. We quietly center ourselves to the stillness of the Meeting; tuning out the sounds of the world outside and turning our attention to the inner voice. Don't worry if you find your mind juggling lively thoughts. Find peace in the stillness surrounding you.
Our children sit silently with us for the first 15 minutes, after which they are excused for silent study or First Day School.
Our Meeting for Worship is unprogrammed. There are no prepared sermons, songs, or prayers. We sit in quiet waiting, listening for our own leadings of the Spirit. If a leading comes, we speak the message into the silence. There is no commenting or discussion following each message. Instead, we return to silence; humbly digesting the spoken message.
Meeting ends when the Clerk announces the end of the hour. Friends are warmly welcomed; announcements are made; visiting commences.
See "The Quaker Way" for more about why we worship as we do.
