The Quaker Study Group aims to provide resources for anyone wishing to learn more about Quakers, Quakerism, and how Quaker faith and practice provides spiritual grounding for work to create social justice. The group posts readings and videos on this website and will sponsor talks and reading/discussion groups on Zoom (and in person when it is safe to do so).  We welcome the participation and inquiries of Meeting members, attenders, visitors, and the merely curious.

If you have expertise in a particular area that you’d be willing to share, please let us know.  To send suggestions for topics or material to be added to this website, or for more information about upcoming events, please email [email protected].

Activities will start in the fall of 2020 and will be announced on the Meeting's website and via the weekly email updates from the Meeting. If you would like to receive the weekly email, please contact [email protected].
