First Sunday: Monthly Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business — 11:30 to 1 pm
Our meeting for business is conducted in a manner similar to our worship. We listen carefully for God’s guidance — with mutual care and regard for one another’s wisdom. Ultimately, Quaker decision-making is Spirit-led, for together we seek unity with God’s will for the meeting. The co-clerks are the appointed servant leaders of our meeting.

Fourth Sunday: Women’s Group — 11:30 to 1 pm
All women are welcome. In Women’s Group we wish to create a sacred space for an intimate sharing of our spiritual journeys. Our journeys reflect the multiple roles in our lives including daughter, sister, partner, friend, wife, mother and spiritual being. They also include other aspects of our lives such as our work, our fears, our hopes and our understanding of the Spirit. Women’s Group seeks to nurture and support our individual spiritual growth. We listen carefully to each other, pray for each other and hold each other and the group in the Light.
