Together we nurture the spiritual vitality of Friends

FGC is taking a winter holiday break!

FGC News

FGC's (currently virtual) office will be closed between December 24th, 2020 and January 3rd, 2021.

During this time, our virtual Meeting for Worship open to all Friends and spiritual seekers will be held on Saturdays, and virtual Meeting for Worship and worship-sharing opportunities for Friends of Color will also take place as planned. We are very grateful to our virtual worship volunteers for nurturing these vital online events!

Updates from FGC Programs about the Winter Holiday Closure

The bi-weekly virtual Open House for Friends of Color hosted by the Ministry on Racism Program will resume on Friday, January 15th, 2021.

The QuakerBooks website will continue processing customer orders, thanks to our partnership with PSSC. Visit to browse our selection of books and place an order.

The 2nd virtual Retreat for Youth of Color will take place as scheduled on Saturday, January 2nd, 2021. Register here to participate.

Friends who want to support FGC as part of their year-end giving plans can make a donation online here while we're closed. Friends are also welcome to send their donations by mail, though given the current postal service backlog in the United States, we ecourage Friends who want their donation to arrive by December 31st, 2020 and take advantage of 2020 tax incentives to use our secure online form.

The Vital Friends eNewsletter will be sent out to Friends on Friday, January 8th, 2021. Click here to subscribe to FGC's mailing list (or update your current email and mail preferences).


We look forward to serving you when we return to normal business hours on January 4th, 2021!

FGC staff wishes you and your loved ones a holiday season filled with comfort and peace!
