You Are Welcome Here

Do you have a yearning for God and a keen sense of spirituality, yet you can’t quite find a fit with traditional churches? Do you have a relationship with God that brings you peace, but you don’t know how to be part of church-as-you-know it? Over 350 years ago, Friends shed the trappings of their traditional church. They knew that the heart of Christianity was a direct, experiential relationship with Jesus. If a person had this relationship, they didn’t need anything else. If a person didn’t have it, nothing else would satisfy. It started a movement in which people gathered to know God together—and waited to hear from God directly. This began the custom of waiting in Silence for ministry to emerge rather than depending upon clergy to do the God-work. More than just changing worship, it changed the way Friends conducted business together. In fact, it changed a lot of things, leading us to beliefs of equality among all people, peacemaking, simplicity, and social justice.
