Accessibility Information

We have a gravel parking area onsite.  We have a portable metal ramp for access to the Meetinghouse or the First Day School via wheelchair or other assistive mobility device.  Meetinghouse floors are wooden with rugs along the aisle ways.  The benches are wooden with cushions.  We do not have modern utilities or plumbing.  There is a wood stove in the Meetinghouse and portable heaters in both the Meetinghouse and the First Day School for the winter.  However, we advise visitors and Friends to dress warmly.  On extremely cold days, we typically do not meet.  In summer, the Meetinghouse and First Day School doors are open to allow a breeze.  At Quarterly Meeting, we have porta-toilets available; at all other times, there is only a privy toilet in a small enclosed private space off the Meetinghouse entry porch.  If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Welcome. [new paragraph] Who are the builders of, and worshippers at this meeting house? Are we only a sect of the past or do we really still exist today? [new paragraph] We, who have been called Seekers of the Truth, Quakers and Friends, are members of the Religious Society of Friends. Yes, we are a sect, but we do not separate ourselves from the world about us. [new paragraph] We believe God is present in every person and that peace is preferable to war. We gather in silent communal worship to wait on the Spirit of God. Sometimes It moves us in other ways. [new paragraph] We have no formal creed, no ritual, dogma nor liturgy. Instead, to help us follow Divine guidance we pose, both individually and corporately, searching queries; we strive to trust to love, rather than to react to fear; we work towards peace because we believe it is the only way; we are led to implement our concerns for the equal rights of all. Many of us have been drawn to this religion -- Quakerism -- because of its dual commitment to spiritual awareness and social action. [new paragraph] These beliefs are not always easy to hold nor to honor with action, but our search has led us to commit ourselves to them. [new paragraph] Perhaps this approach of Friends could be helpful and meaningful to you. We welcome you to accept our invitation to search with us at this or any other meeting house or place. If you wish, please come to join with us for worship. Your children are also welcome either at Meeting for Worship or First Day School.
