Welcome to Lancaster Friends Meeting.

We welcome all visitors, inquirers, and seekers to join us as we seek the Presence of the Divine in the expectant silence of our “Meeting for Worship.”  As Quakers, we seek to “walk cheerfully over all the world, answering that of God in everyone” (George Fox, 1656).

That of God, the Inward Light, Spirit, the Light of Christ, the Inward Teacher, the Divine: by whatever name we know this Truth, our belief and our experience is that it dwells in each and every one of us.

We offer a wholehearted welcome to all regardless of age, gender, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, marital status or family structure, economic or social status, emotional, mental or physical ability, educational level or faith background. We invite all to participate in the life of Lancaster Monthly Meeting through leadership, ministry, mission, social engagement, worship, marriage and sharing in one another’s lives, joys and blessings.

This is the basis of our spiritual community. Believing this, we aspire to be an open and inclusive community, affirming the diversity of our individual spiritual paths while seeking that unity which transcends our human differences.
