Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

Cannon Valley Friends Meeting

Cannon Valley Friends Meeting is an unprogrammed meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers.  We are located in Northfield, MN, about 35 miles south of Minneapolis/St. Paul.  

What's New

On March 15 there will be a Friends' Forum after Meeting for Worship. Soraya Dangor and Graison Hensley Chapman will talk about their experiences living and working on the West Bank in Palestine.


The following announcement was copied from the NYM website:

Join us for worshipful attention to business, reflection and fellowship! This is a wonderful opportunity to meet with Friends from meetings throughout the NYM region. Come and participate in the business of the Yearly Meeting, and discuss with others the work of their local and regional committees.


The following article was copied from the website:

Do you have your winter reading planned out?  Put Enrique’s Journey, by Sonia Nazario at the top of your list and participate in a community read!  Northfield Reads is initiated by the Northfield Human Rights Commission, and also sponsored by the Northfield Public Library, Northfield Public Schools, Carleton College, and Content bookstore.  


Please join us as we gather in Minnesota to march in solidarity with those who gather in Selma, AL to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the march from Selma to Montgomery.  We gather to celebrate the work of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr and countless others who fought for desegregation, voter rights, and civil liberties. We gather to re-commit to new levels of action for justice, specifically related to failures and disparities in law enforcement, voting rights, education, employment, criminal justice and economic well-being.

There will be an opportunity for learning more about Quakers beginning in March 2015.  We expect this will be a group that meets in the evenings.  Dates and frequency will be decided by the group.
The initial meeting will be held at 7:00 pm on Wednesday, March 18th, at the Meetinghouse (512 Washington Street, Northfield) and led by Tom Moen and Sam Johnson.  

The 2015 Friends General Conference Gathering will be held from Sunday, July 5, through Saturday, July 11, at the campus of Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC (about 50 miles southwest from Asheville, NC).  Early Registration is open from April 1st-12th.  Everyone is encouraged to register early to have equal access to workshop and housing options, as well as priority consideration for financial assistance.
