Adult Young Friends Retreat 

Adult Young Friends (age 18-35) will hold a one-day retreat to discuss our day to day sprituality and faith practices. We will reflect on joys and challenges, offer support to each other, and discuss the query "how do we become an actively anti-racist faith community?" (Saturday, June 26)

Quakers and Business - Working Together

Early Quakers were social rejects; they went into commerce to support themselves. Using a close support network and Quaker values, they created profitable and respected businesses. We remember their example as we move forward in our current work and business lives. Join us for community, connection and opening to spirit. (Friday, June 18 - Sunday, June 20)
