Here's a video of our Meeting for Worship via Zoom. Dan Burger brought the message!


On Sunday, October 27, six West Newton Friends ate lunch at the Eiteljorg Museum of American Indians and Western Art with educator and museum volunteer Sharon Mills. Sharon then led the group on a tour of the second floor to help us get acquainted with the Native Americans who inhabited the land around Indianapolis.


As part of our study of Quakers and Native American relations, Shane Fox, treasurer and drum keeper of the Miami Nation of Indiana, will be our guest during Sunday School on November 3, 2019. Shane will share with us about the history of the Miami (on whose tribal land our meetinghouse sits) and about Miami life in Indiana today. There will also be a time of questions and answers.

All are welcome to this event.


As part of our study on Quaker and Native American relations, we'll be taking a field trip to the Eiteljog Museum on October 27. We'll have lunch there and then Susan Mills, a docent, will give us a private tour.  Details to follow!

Quaker Quote

"The sick and those caring for them have need of our prayers. But let us not imagine … that a few sentimental good wishes from a distance are all that is needed. Whenever we intercede in prayer we must be prepared for an answer which places a practical obligation upon us. A prayer is always a commitment." -- Thomas F Green, 1952

The quotations used in this space are from Quakers. The quotes will be changed often to give a feeling for the thinking of some of those who passed this way before us and Friends today.
