As part of the Society of Friends, we seek to let our lives speak our commitment to Quaker values:

Simplicity: Friends believe that the most important things in life aren't things.

Peace: Friends believe there is always a path that brings peace, justice, dignity, and respect.

Equality: Friends believe that every person is equally loved by God, no matter what.

Stewardship: Friends believe that all God's gifts are entrusted to us for the sake of future generations.

Integrity: Friends believe that our words and actions must reflect our truest selves.

Community: Friends believe that we need each other, since each and every one of us is precious in our community.

"All Church Reads" Book Discussion Groups open to all interested persons are held in the spring and fall each year.

On October 1st area Friends gathered to experience worship from our past in the Quaker Meeting house which was attended by Herbert Hoover's family. The morning included the history of the meeting house by Ken Faucett, a special guest (Margaret Fell Fox: aka Kathleen Darling,) and silent worship followed by breaking bread together with a delicious potluck lunch!
