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.

All PFF Friends (and guests too) are invited to attend the 2015 annual Spring Retreat in March. This will be a special event as it will include the first annual sessions of the Piedmont Friends Yearly Meeting.


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.
