Friends, or Quakers, have traditionally referred to the days of the week by number. Thus, Sunday was "First Day." While most of this custom has fallen away, Sunday School is still called First Day School. Ours begins at 9:15 am on designated Sundays.
If you are wondering what God may be, looking for purpose in life, craving company, or seeking solitude, come to our Meeting for Worship.
We shall not ask you to speak or sing; we shall not ask you what you believe; we shall simply offer you our friendship and a chance to sit quietly.
And perhaps someone will speak, and perhaps someone will read, and perhaps someone will pray, and perhaps you will find here that which you are seeking.
We are not saints; we are not different ...
Except that we believe that God's light is in everyone,
waiting to be discovered.
