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.

Friends Forum Programs

March 3: Creating Cultures of Justice and Peace. Janet Anderson and Colleen Mlecoch will share about their November trip to Poland to participate in a "Creating Cultures of Justice and Peace" training sponsored by Friends Peace Teams. The training was held at Krzyzowa International Peace Center near Swidnica, not far from Wroclaw. Participants included eighteen Ukrainian social workers, psychologists and teachers; one Iraqi peace worker; one British and eight American Quakers; and one Canadian Mennonite.

March 10: “My Spiritual Journey: Opening the Door to the Inner Life.” Lauri Perman will tell a series of stories illustrating how she learned to cultivate an inner life and what happened when she had to start all over again. Lauri previously served among Friends as presiding clerk of Baltimore Yearly Meeting and Executive Director of Pendle Hill.

March 17: That weird book at the end... Many Christian traditions avoid the Book of Revelation due to its obscure writing and near unreadability. Possibly for the same reason it forms the core of other Christian traditions. What if the book has a message that could speak to Quakers? Join us for conversation and reflections prompted by a QuakerSpeak video on the topic.

March 24: Conversation about the Query of the Month.  March Quote, from Howard Thurman: "Don't ask yourself what the world needs, ask yourself what makes you come alive. And then go and do that. Because what the world needs is people who have come alive."  Query:  In this season of new life and renewal, what makes you come alive?
