Are Quakers Christian?Quakerism was founded by radical Christians who sought to follow Jesus' example sometimes in a very extreme fashion. However, many non-Christians have felt led to Quakerism, and our practices and beliefs are suited to the creation of a community of great spiritual and religious diversity.
What can I expect on Sunday morning?Friends Memorial Church combines traditional silent worship with more familiar elements, including a sermon and hymns.
8:30 to 9:30—Silent service—This service is entirely silent, save for spoken ministry from worshipers.
10:30—coffee and refreshments can be had at Fellowship time in the Fellowship hall.
Following the silent service, there are classes for children and adults most weeks; the third Sunday of the month, Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business replaces the adult class. All are welcome to all activities; however, the Business Meeting may not be of significant interest to newcomers.
