Becoming a Friends Meeting Member

Children born into Quaker homes and brought up in a Friends meeting or church are Junior Members, and may - in time - apply to become adult members. Other persons (from other religious bodies or through study and individual searching) who are attracted to membership by faith, witness, or fellowship of Friends – who feel themselves ready to become members of a Friends meeting or church by “convincement” – are encouraged to apply for membership.

Each individual Friend holds membership in a particular Friends meeting or church, and in this way belongs to the Religious Society of Friends. Members of Flagstaff Friends Meeting automatically hold membership in Arizona Half-Yearly Meeting, Intermountain Yearly Meeting, and in the worldwide Religious Society of Friends.
