Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice

North Columbus Friends Meeting

We are...
North Columbus Friends Meeting is an unprogrammed Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers). 

North Columbus Friends Meeting recognizes that, because of the climate of fear and hostility fed by the recent election, many who have been explicitly targeted by the campaign, including people of color, LGBTQ+ people, Muslims, immigrants and people with disabilities, may feel particularly unsafe, excluded or afraid.

We publicly identify our Meeting as a place of refuge and sanctuary for our neighbors who might feel under threat. As Friends, we are committed to oppose racism, homophobia, Islamophobia, and gender-based violence; as well as discrimination and oppression in all its forms.

We welcome opportunities to partner with and accompany marginalized communities. We are open to participating in any ecumenical, interfaith and community events that promote unity, connection, dialogue and mutual respect; and oppose hate and division.

What's New

Friends- you are invited to attend a meeting at the NCFM meetinghouse on Tuesday, February 20th at 8 PM to discuss the query: "How does one respond to the presence of weapons in places of worship within the context of the Friends Peace Testimony?"

Note- the time on this meeting has been changed. It was originally scheduled for 7, but will be held at 8 instead.

"We utterly deny all outward wars and strife and fightings with outward weapons, for any end, or under any pretence whatsoever; and this is our testimony to the whole world.

Each year LEYM’s Ministry and Nurture Committee prepares a set of queries and readings for the consideration of meetings. The Ministry and Nurture Committee invites each meeting to consider the queries and to develop a written response that describes the insights arrived at during its consideration.
