Monthly Meeting for Worship with Attention to Business

Business of the Meeting is conducted in the manner of Friends generally on the second Sunday of each month following meeting for worship. Business is conducted prayerfully, seeking guidance from the Spirit. The “sense of the meeting” is sought for decision making. “Action is taken only when the group can proceed in substantial unity” (Faith and Practice, Philadelphia Yearly Meeting).

Administrative matters and social concerns are generally handled in committees, which bring recommendations to Monthly Meeting for discussion and appropriate action.

Dish-to-Pass Brunch

On fourth Sundays of each month, Meeting for Worship is typically followed by a light brunch. Many elect to bring finger foods.
