Mountain View Friends Meeting

Mountain View Friends Meeting is a Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (often known as "Quakers"). We welcome people from all faiths and those of no particular faith. We are all seeking the Divine together. Our meeting practices “unprogrammed” worship. This means that we gather to wait for God’s ministry to come to us out of the silence without appointed clergy as a guide. We have no creed or dogma, but we do have testimonies which guide our actions. Those testimonies include simplicity, peace, integrity, community, and equality. Friends believe that putting our faith into action in the world is important.

What to Expect at a Meeting
When you come into the meetinghouse before worship you may find some Friends already sitting in silence. There is generally a “centering” that occurs at the beginning of Meetings when Friends seek to clear their minds of distractions and come to a receptive state. We listen and wait for a direct experience of the Divine. Some may be moved to share their experience by standing and speaking. About 15 minutes before the end of worship, the children enter the room to join us in worship. The meeting ends when friends shake hands and greet each other. Following worship, Friends share joys and sorrows, welcome new people, share announcements and enjoy a time of fellowship.

What's New

So far we have raised $130,000 of our $250,000 goal! 

Thank you so much
 to everyone who has already so generously made a gift to the Phase One Fund. Our friendly teams will be visiting as many meeting members and attendees as possible over the next few months, so we hope that if you get a phone call asking for a visit to discuss your dream for the meeting house, you will take them up on the opportunity.

Committees constitute an effective means of facilitating the monthly meeting’s business because much of the work can be done more appropriately in small groups than in the meeting for business or by individuals.
