West Newton Friends Meeting (church) is a  fellowship of Quakers, seeking to live in close relationship to God. Because of God's love and grace for each of us and led by Jesus' example, we are committed to:

    - welcoming all people regardless of ethnic origin, race, political party, sexual orientation, or gender identity

    - working for peace and equality in our community and world

    - working in our community and schools in whatever ways they think we might be helpful

    - inviting everyone to seek God along with us

You Are Welcome Here!

What's New

On July 21 during Meeting for Learning we discussed ways that we might be of practical assistance to those in need on our southern border. By practical assistance we had in mind the words of Jesus in Matthew 25 -- "For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me." Toward that end, Ministry and Counsel had asked me to be touch with Friends Meetings that are providing or working with groups to provide such assistance.

Minute In Support of Anti-Hate/Bias Crimes Legislation

I was born and raised where the new Indianapolis Airport (and old Weir Cook Airport was) on land that my great grandparents homesteaded. Jim and Ruth Ladd Pierson were my parents and I and my siblings (JoAnn, Johnnie, Charles (Laddie), and Jimmie) lived on the farm with my Great-Uncle Roscoe. Some of our ancestors were buried in a small cemetery that is located close to the FedEx building at the airport.

Dale and I have been privileged to travel to many faraway places, both in and out of our country. Most trips have had meaning beyond just enjoying the scenery as a tourist. We have made trips to grow professionally, attended Quaker gatherings, visited Friends’ ministry sites, and participated on work teams. We have experienced new and varying landscapes, cultures, languages, foods, economic conditions and ways of doing things. Our hearts, minds and spirits have been enlarged to take them all in.

Dorothy (DA) Moore, a birthright Quaker and descendent of Levi Coffin, moved from Indianapolis to Decatur Township in 1944, when she married Charles H. Pierson. Living on the Pierson farm with her husband, mother-in-law, and Charlie’s two sisters and no inside plumbing was quite a change for her. Dorothy grew up in Indianapolis and went to Shortridge High School. She had a chance to go to Earlham College and study nursing but all she had ever wanted to be was a secretary.

We regularly feature the work of one of West Newton Friends making a difference in our community. We’re all involved in different ways and sometimes we don’t realize the ministries we're doing in locally and around the world.

This article features the volunteer work of Charles and Ruth Alber.

Quaker Quote

"Our relation with God is not in isolation, apart from our fellow beings; as we are blessed, so we too are able to bless… As we open our hearts and receive, so we give to and receive from other people." – Jennifer Kavanagh

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.
