Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice
A Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

Friends of the Light

Welcome! Friends of the Light holds two worship services each Sunday.

“Unprogrammed” worship (where we gather in silence) begins at 9:00 in the morning and lasts approximately 45 minutes.

The "semi-programmed" Sunday Morning Meeting for Worship begins at 10:00 a.m.  The children join us for the first ten or fifteen minutes and then go to their own class.

We are part of The New Association of Friends.

At our recent living room conversation we looked at the plat maps showing where the original meetinghouses were - the school houses at Cedar Run and Long Lake - and photos of them. We studied plat maps showing Pleasant Grove and the Round Top schoolhouse where Levi Pennington taught, just outside Maple City.

We looked at the Garfield Township plat map that shows the Lone Pine schoolhouse, the predecessor of Traverse City Friends Meeting, and the nearby farm where evangelist Amos Kenworthy lived.


Worship with us!
