Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice
A Quaker meeting in the northern suburbs of Chicago

Lake Forest Friends Meeting

We invite all to worship with us.

Please join us for unprogrammed Quaker meeting for worship. We center without words or music to listen as a community in expectant worship. Out of the silence as called by the Spirit, someone may spontaneously rise and give vocal ministry to the group. We are nourished by our mutual search for our understanding of the Divine. We welcome visitors to our meeting. 

Concurrently with meeting for worship we welcome children of all ages for a program that includes the study of Friends’ principles, testimonies, history, and Bible stories. 

Once each month we have a meeting for business when we worshipfully consider care of our community and our witness to the world seeking integrity, peace, simplicity, stewardship of the earth, and equality.

Lake Forest Friends Meeting is part of Illinois Yearly Meeting, Friends General Conference, and Friends World Committee for Consultation.     

Join us in Peace.
