West Newton Friends Meeting

West Newton Friends is now having "hybrid" worship -- meeting in person for those who feel easy doing so and via Zoom for those at a distance or for other reasons. Both the in-person and Zoom meetingrooms will open at 9:15 a.m. The first half hour will be semi-programmed. It will begin at 9:30 a.m. For Easter, it will be a musical program by Norma Gaston, Lynn Mills, and Andy Gaston.

The second half hour will be unprogrammed. It will begin at 10:00 a.m. 

The entire Meeting for Worship will be recorded and posted on YouTube. 

Friends can join Zoom for the first half hour, the second half hour, or both. They can leave whenever is best for them. We will have those joining via Zoom up on the television screen at the front of the meetingroom so those attending in person can see them. A camera will be on the meetingroom so that those on Zoom can see those attending in person.

For Friends attending in person:

  • Masks are required at all times.

  • After entering the building, please seat yourself following current CDC social distancing guidelines.

  • If you feel led to speak out of the silence, please come to the front of the meetingroom so they can be on be seen on camera and heard via microphone by the Zoom attenders. .

  • There will be no fellowship time or snacks following meeting for worship.

  • We will not be having Sunday School following meeting for worship.

Here is the information about attending via Zoom:

Here's a video of our Meeting for Worship via Zoom. Dan Burger brought the message!


On Sunday, October 27, six West Newton Friends ate lunch at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art with educator and museum volunteer Sharon Mills. Sharon then led the group on a tour of the second floor to help us get acquainted with the Native Americans who inhabited the land around Indianapolis.


As part of our study of Quakers and Native American relations, Shane Fox, treasurer and drum keeper of the Miami Nation of Indiana, will be our guest during Sunday School on November 3, 2019. Shane will share with us about the history of the Miami (on whose tribal land our meetinghouse sits) and about Miami life in Indiana today. There will also be a time of questions and answers.

All are welcome to this event.


As part of our study on Quaker and Native American relations, we'll be taking a field trip to the Eiteljog Museum on October 27. We'll have lunch there and then Susan Mills, a docent, will give us a private tour.  Details to follow!

Quaker Quote

"Quakers are not ‘for peace’ but rather know, in the deepest sense of the word, that peace is a holy imperative as part of a just society.” -- Ben Pink Dandelion

The quotations used in this space are from Quakers. The quotes will be changed often to give a feeling for the thinking of some of those who passed this way before us and Friends today.
