A very warm welcome and invitation
We welcome you to our web site and hope that you will join with us as we worship on
Each Sunday (First Day) we come together seeking Divine guidance, strength and peace in our sharing a time of prayer and worship together. We are a diverse faith community who seek, with mutual love and respect, God’s will for us. Our Meetings for Worship are based on the principle of expectant waiting in silence for direct communication with God, with no pastor, music or order of service. Since the time when our meeting house was completed in 1708, it has been kept quite plain so that the worshiper will not be distracted from the main purpose of listening to God’s still small voice within each of us. Although the Meeting for Worship is based on silent prayer, all are free to speak their ministry as an outflow from God. Friends value messages that are simple, come from the heart, and are prompted by the Divine Spirit.
Meetings for Worship last about an hour and are closed when those of the facing benches shake hands. It is customary to linger for a time to greet each other and share news of the community.
Please join with us.
John Woolman (1720-1772)
There is a principle which is pure, placed in the human mind, which in different places and ages hath had different names. It is, however, pure and proceeds from God. It is deep and inward, confined to no forms of religion nor excluded from any, where the heart stands in perfect sincerity. In whomsoever this takes root and grows, of what nation soever, they become brethren.
