Quakers have no dogmas or creeds. We have no one definition of God. Each of us seeks to experience the religious life for her or himself and to share our experiences with others in the Meeting. We have the conviction that each of us can have direct experience of the Spirit of God and that something of God is expressed in everyone's life.

We do not take up a collection during Meeting, and we do not try to convert those who attend Meeting. You are welcome to attend Meeting as often as you like, without any expectation or pressure to join or donate to the Meeting.
