What to expect….on First Day mornings
Quaker Worship is consciously acknowledging that we have entered Christ’s presence and our appropriate role is that of listening to what Christ may being saying to or even through us.
Just prior to 9:30 worshipers begin to gather in the Meeting Room in stillness that is marked by expectant listening. Please, once worship has begun, enter the Meeting House respectfully and quietly, find your place and join the worship in progress.
At 10:00 the stillness of the Meeting is broken by a reading or music conducive to meditation. This is an opportunity for those who chose to enter or leave as the character of the Meeting changes. There is a return to stillness and open worship. It is anticipated that those led by Christ’s spirit will share what is put on their hearts and such messages are intentionally bracketed in stillness. A prepared message is often offered during this time.
Open worship concludes with a Hymn or Chorus followed by the sharing of joys and concerns. Visitors are acknowledged after which announcements are made.
A lively hymn or chorus provides a Benediction opens into a time of fellowship.
An adult discussion class has convened in the Library except on third Sundays. On third Sundays Monthly Meeting for Business will meet followed by a Pot Luck Fellowship Meal.
