Join Friends from many regions for our first in-person Gathering since 2019! (There will also be a few events and workshops available online.)
The Gathering is a week of Quaker worship, workshops, and community for all ages. Friends come together from across the USA and Canada (and sometimes further) to deepen our connection to one another and the Spirit. The Gathering is typically held on a college campus in late June/early July, and location changes from year to year. In 2020, FGC began offering some virtual Gathering programs as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. Attenders range from newborns to elders in their 90s, and include both long-time Friends and those newer to Quakerism. In structure, it’s part conference and part family camp. In content, it provides an abundance of opportunities to learn about Quakerism and to foster your spiritual life – and to have fun together.
Theme: “Listen So That We May Live”
Location: Western Oregon University in Monmouth, Oregon
