News & Announcements
In the tradition of the Religious Society of Friends for more than three hundred and fifty years, Oread Friends express their concern for peace and justice in a variety of ways, including living with simplicity and integrity, conscientious objection to war and other forms of violence, the use of appropriate technology, care of the environment, acknowledging the fundamental equality of all people, and supporting the civil and cultural rights of every human being.
Oread Friends Meeting consistently has announcements shared at the rise of meeting, and maintains a print bulletin board at the Meetinghouse to announce upcoming events.
The Common Ground Program is a community gardening and urban agriculture program created by the City of Lawrence in 2012. The Common Ground Program’s goal is to transform vacant or under-utilized city properties into vibrant sites of healthy food production for our citizens. The Oread Friends Garden/Farm is a proud project site.
Oread Friends Meeting is now sponsoring a Friends Friday Film series, showing movies with peace and justice concerns three-times a year at the Meeting House.
