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 is a growing Quaker fellowship of people who seek to listen to God, who believe that the Holy Spirit enlightens and transforms, and who believe that the Bible guides us to understand God’s will. We honor that of God in every person, inviting all to join in the life of our church. We hold space for each other to grow in Christ, and to enjoy each one’s giftedness. Especially in difficult times, we remind ourselves that we are called to love as Christ loved us.
We offer this love in practical ways – through encouraging respectful and authentic relationships, and by serving in our community and beyond our borders. Sunday choices for worship include an early intimate service, Sunday school, an 11 a.m. service with a sermon, singing, prayer, and traditional Quaker open worship. We also offer a time on Sunday for work and camaraderie in our garden and an evening gathering around the fire pit. Our “First Sunday” potluck is a cherished activity. When we meet for business once a month, all active attenders may share in decision-making.
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.
We want to be people who live abundantly yet simply, trusting that the best things in life come gently and freely, without harming the earth or other people. We want to follow Christ against the grain of the dominant culture. It's not easy to do this alone, so we help each other.
Some of us look for ways to feed the hungry in our own neighborhoods. Some of us have traveled far from home as medical workers or as advocates for peace and justice. Still others express their faith through art and music. However it is expressed, each example of vital faith is a gift to the whole community. We know that God is at work within us and through us, because we can see lives change.
We love to extend our hospitality to those who might wander in, maybe not knowing much about us, or maybe having heard a little about Quakers. There is warmth and acceptance here, which encourages authenticity. We want to hear your questions, your insights and your experience of God. You are welcome here!
