Charlotte Friends Meeting
Our experience has shown that active participation in the life of the Meeting community can deepen and enrich our understanding of Quakerism and what it means to be a Friend.

On November 16th, FDS greeted 25 plus middle school-age students and their chaperones from the Unitarian Universalist Church of Charlotte. They experienced silent worship and did a hands-on activity to learn about Quaker Testimonies. Each testimony was represented by a common spice (simplicity=salt, peace=lavendar, integrity=cinnamon, community=multi-colored peppercorns, equality=star anise, stewardship=bay leaves). We hope to have more such activities with the youth of area churches, including reciprocal visits.
Worship with us!
