Silent Worship


Our form of worship reflects the Quaker belief that direct experience of God is possible for everyone without any ritual or intermediary.

It reflects the trust that all who take part will strive sincerely, both in their silent worship and in their spoken ministry, to seek that inward communion.

We gather in the expectation that as we quiet our minds and open our hearts to the Divine Presence, we will be gathered in the spirit. We gradually learn to become still and, by grace, to listen to the Divine that lives within.

Our Mission


As a Community of Faith, we affirm our desire:

  • To honor our Quaker heritage to remind us from whence we came

  • To sustain our faithfulness to the Divine as our Spiritual Center

  • To grow in depth and breadth to welcome and nurture adults, children, youth, and families of diverse backgrounds

  • To reach beyond ourselves to co-create a more just, peaceful, and sustainable local and global community
