Friends Journal has just published a blog post entitled "New Worldwide Quaker Map Released."

Everyone is welcome to attend our Meeting for Worship, held every First Day/ Sunday at 10:30am. (Wheelchair accessible.)

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

Silent worship ends (the "rise of meeting") when the Clerk greets Friends. We welcome each other, share announcements, coffee and social time.

See "The Quaker Way" for more about why we worship as we do.
