Work of the Meeting

Quaker meetings follow the guidance of the Spirit in business as well as in worship, and function by appointing members to offices and committees. These volunteers prepare business that comes to the entire group for Spirit-led decision making. Our meeting does not have paid staff, except for housekeeping or groundskeeping.  Everyone is welcome to participate in the work of the meeting.

Meeting for business

The community has a monthly meeting where we make decisions. We use the collective discernment of members to help us understand God’s will for us.

Offices and Committees

The bulk of the work is done by offices, including the Clerk, Assistant Clerk, Recording Clerks, Treasurer and Assistant Treasurer and Recorder, and committees according to the meeting’s needs and concerns.  Different committees care for the quality of worship, finances, peace and justice work, hospitality, religious education, nurturing members, and care of the building.
