Family Circle has closed until next autumn.  *Please check out the exception for the Third Sunday each month under Meeting Times in the right hand column on this page.

You are Welcome Here

 We believe that every person is loved by Divine Spirit. Our Quaker faith community includes people of any age, religious background, race, education, nationality, physical or mental ability, sexual orientation, gender identity, or economic circumstance.

You are welcome to join us as you are. We come together in worship at 10:30am:

  • To listen to promptings of the Spirit;
  • To experience a collective Presence/Wisdom;
  • To grow in our faith;
  • To be changed;
  • To support each other; and 
  • To help one another do what the inner LIght urges us to do.
