1725 GRAND AVE, SAINT PAUL, MN

We are a Quaker meeting on Grand Avenue in Saint Paul offering unprogrammed meeting for worship, including youth programs for children and teens.

Twin Cities Friends Meeting (TCFM) practices unprogrammed silent worship, without ministers or prepared ministry of any kind. We wait together silently in faith that divine spirit, or an irresistible sense that we have a message to share with our fellow worshippers, may visit us at any time. Everyone, including families with children, non-theists, and people of all genders and sexualities, is welcome to join us in worship.

Quaker Organizations Respond to the Killing of George Floyd

From American Friends Service Committee, AFSC condemns police killing of George Floyd and police violence against protesters

“The brutal murder of George Floyd is the consequence of a racist system that disproportionately targets people of color for violence, imprisonment, and premature death,” said Shanene Herbert, director of AFSC’s Healing Justice program in Saint Paul. “Firing these police officers is not enough. We need resources directed away from the police forces that occupy our communities. We need investment in our young people, in our schools, in our health care, and in transformative forms of justice that address the root causes of harm.”

From Friends Committee on National Legislation, Buying Groceries Should Not Result in Death

As people of faith, we offer our love and our condolences to the family and friends of George Floyd. But love and condolences are not enough. For too long, people of color have experienced racial profiling, undue use of force, and murder at the hands of police. This unjust system must change and all of us must take responsibility for making that change happen.
