Meeting for worship is held every Sunday at 8:30 a.m. and 11 a.m., and Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m. The 11 a.m. meeting has First Day School (Quakerese for Sunday School) and nursery care throughout the school year, and informal child care during the summer months. First and fifth Sundays are exceptions. On first Sundays we hold “family meeting” where adults and children gather together for songs, games and spiritual exploration in a separate room from meeting for worship. When there is a fifth Sunday we have a 30-minute worship session where parents are specifically encouraged to bring their children.
How we worship
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. Visitors are encouraged to attend at least several meetings for worship to get a sense of our manner of worship and spoken ministry.
