About-Worship

We Are Loudly Silent, Assertively Contemplative, Humbly Prophetic

We are a Quaker Church located in North Seattle. We are a community of people gathered to Listen to God and follow God’s Leadings. We love Jesus! We are all ministers and seek to support each other in our ministries. We welcome all who desire to join us in this God adventure as we Listen to God and liberate each other to live into our place in the world!

We seek to be a welcoming and inclusive community that encourages people to better love God, love others, and love ourselves. To love ourselves is to embrace our unique, God-given identity and gifts, given to us for our own sake and as a potential blessing to others. We strive to be a safe space that gathers all people of diverse backgrounds and perspectives to worship and minister together in unity and in the Quaker tradition.  We are led by the Spirit to recognize full participation of LGBTQ+ persons in all aspects of the life of North Seattle Friends Church.

We honor the diverse spiritual journeys people are on, including their own deeply personal understandings of faithfulness. We advocate for healthy relationships and will support them. Membership in our meeting is open to all people who want to join us in our Christ-centered Quaker journey and practice of group discernment.

We believe that diversity enriches our community. We encourage our members to speak their voice with confidence but listen to others with humility. We support each person’s faith journey and walk together as we seek the Light of Christ in our lives.

On Sunday, August 2, 2015 Jon Kershner brought the message in worship. This powerful and prophetic message speaks deeply of how North Seattle Friends is trying to live out our call to faithfulness. The message was owned by the congregation and we yearn to share it with others.
