Christ is available in the present to all who are open to Him. Christianity is both an inner experience and an outer social witness. All of us are called to be ministers. Silence is a vital part of worship as we listen for the guidance of the Holy Spirit. Each individual has something of God in him/her and every life is sacred. We value our unique Quaker heritage as we seek to do God's work in the world today. We support missionaries in Africa, Asia, Central and South America as well as troubled areas in our own country which need the message of Christ. We support the work of the American Friends Service Committee as it brings hope and loving help to areas of the world which suffer injustice, oppression, war and other disasters. We support a ministry of peace and reconciliation, working to bring about a world where the warlike mentality will be obsolete, a world which recognizes that God loves and values each person.
Visitors Always Welcome!
And he shall judge among the nations, and shall rebuke many people: and they shall beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning hooks: nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war any more. -Isaiah 2:4
