After attending Meeting for Worship for some time, an individual might be interested in becoming a Member of the Religious Society of Friends, Orchard Park Friends Meeting. The process is a fairly straightforward one, and it often comes after a time of seeking. Quaker Meeting and Quaker Worship may feel like home.
The process involves:
Writing a letter requesting membership and telling why you would like to join, addressed to the Clerk of the Meeting (Chuck Zelasko). The letter doesn’t need to be long; just a few sentences with the request and why are sufficient. The letter can be emailed to email@example.com or mailed to Orchard Park Friends Meeting, 6924 East Quaker St., Orchard Park NY 14127
You will then meet with a group of Orchard Park Friends that you have chosen (called a “clearness committee”) to discuss the possibility and see if you have any questions. If you have any questions now, please reach out to anyone who attends Orchard Park Friends Meeting.
