Friends General Conference

Nurturing faith and Quaker practice
Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)

Madison Friends Meeting

We welcome you to explore the Madison Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends. In worship we gather for an hour to listen for the presence of Spirit within-- our inward teacher. We wait in the power of this silent communion which is the foundation of our worship.

The spiritual quality of our faith and practice has been enriched over the years by the full participation and leadership of all Friends and friends.  We celebrate the inclusion of individuals, couples, or families of all backgrounds and constellations in every aspect of the life of our Meeting.

Please browse our site to learn more about our Meeting and about Quakers!

 URGENT!  We need one lead teacher in the younger elementary class (K-2nd grade) in the next month or two to replace a teacher who will be stepping down.  Lead teachers will find well-organized resources in our library for preparing lessons with assistance of the FDS coordinator.   Time commitment is one to two classes per month.  


Worship with us!
