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

Quakers have a long tradition of building our lives around our values.  Beliefs should lead to action.  One question is: how do we handle our money?  It is important to financially care for ourselves and our loved ones, but how can we do that in ways that also support Quaker values?

Twin Cities Friends Meeting is hosting two workshops on this topic.  Larry Jalowiec, Director of FGC Stewardship Services, and Craig Foor, a certified financial advisor with Everence, a $2 billion Mennonite financial organization, will facilitate this program. 


On April 18, 2014 the Development Committee of Cannon Valley Friends Meeting sent out the following appeal for additional donations to complete the construction of the new Meetinghouse:

We've Got Windows

We Need Your Help to Walk in the Door


"What cans't thou say?" is the theme for this year's Session at the Lion's Camp in Rosholt, WI.

Attendees are asked to register by May 3.

The 2014 FGC Gathering will be held June 29-July 5 at California University in Pennsylvania, located in California, PA (about 35 miles south of Pittsburgh).  The theme of this year's gathering is "Let Love Be the First Motion."


At our most recent Meeting for Business on Feb. 16, 2014, the Peace and Wider Interaction Committee presented two documents for consideration by the Meeting--one was a copy of the Duluth Superior Friends Meeting's "Minute on Copper-Nickel Minning in Northern Minnesota" and the other was further information on the issue of copper-nickel mining in Northern Minnesota.  [Note: Both documents can be viewed by clicking on the "Files" links toward the bottom of this page.


The recent Climate Change Summit Meeting at St. Olaf College in Northfield, MN and its keynote address by Paul Douglas, local meteorologist, on the topic "Climate Change: Natural Cycle or Troubling Trend?" has raised our community's awareness of the threat of climate change.
