The Sierra-Cascades Yearly Meeting of Friends is a voluntary association of meetings, churches, and individuals that supports worship, ministry, and service through the cultivation of Christian faith in the Quaker tradition. We are led by the Spirit to commit ourselves to recognizing the full participation of LGBTQ+ people in all aspects of the life of Sierra-Cascades Yearly Meeting of Friends.
We are a participatory, Christ-centered Quaker meeting in Camas, Washington, that seeks to live out our faith by loving God and loving our neighbors. We are diverse in our beliefs, backgrounds, and personal experiences. This as an asset to who we are. We work to be a welcoming community for all people, one that loves without judgment. It is important to us to be active in our community and to care for those in need the best we can. We are open to dialogue, we like good questions, and we value the practice of listening.
Eugene Friends Church affirms that God created humans with a desire for connected community, for friendship, for family, and for loving sexual intimacy, all of which are part of God’s love and God’s good creation; and we commit to teach and encourage those values that strengthen and support committed sexual relationships: love, commitment, respect, equality and fidelity. We will not exclude any person from full participation in the life and ministry of Eugene Friends Church solely on the basis of their sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or commitment to a lifelong monogamous same-sex relationship.
We are a Christian community with a Quaker emphasis.
The image of God is imprinted indelibly upon every person so people are important. Christ’s love for us and the world compels us to acknowledge this supreme value of every person and life form. We seek unity without uniformity and diversity without division; choosing to believe that contrasts can enrich our life together. God wishes to lay concerns and responsibilities on all who will allow it since each is of equal importance and invited to be a minister of Truth in a given area. We are called to be especially mindful of the poor and disadvantaged around us and throughout the world.
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.
