We strive, during COVID-19, to maintain our usual manner of worship via Zoom meetings on Sunday mornings. Please email efmemail [at] gmail [dot] com for link information; please give the clerks 24 hours to respond.
Eastside Friends are Quakers in the “unprogrammed” tradition. We gather in silence, knowing that the Spirit of God is among us. Anyone present may sense a divine leading to stand (if able) and share a brief message. After a message, we return to the silence to reflect on it. There may be several messages — or none at all — during any Meeting for Worship.
Towards the end of the Meeting for Worship, an appointed member will announce time for sharing joys and concerns.
Meeting ends with everyone "shaking hands", followed by introductions, announcements, and fellowship time.
