Who are the people of Tempe Friends Meeting?

We are everyday people just like you. We have families, jobs, and elderly parents, and like you we struggle with life's problems. We are also a community and family. Some of us were raised Quaker, most of us come from Christian or Jewish faiths, and some come from other faiths or none at all. Each of us is seeking their own way to know God. Tempe Monthly Meeting welcomes all people as full and equal members of our community, regardless of race, gender, ability, or sexual orientation. Please know that you are welcome among us unconditionally.

How do Friends worship?

It is in silence that we still our hearts and minds so that the Spirit of God may enter. This silencing, this waiting in expectancy, this listening for that which is deepest within – this is what Friends call worship. We seek a gathered stillness in our meetings for worship so that all may feel the power of God's love leading us and drawing us together.


Other Ways to Look at Quakers

Over the years, Friends have been described with some of the following language: in our worship, we focus on the "Inner Light," or engage in silent prayer. Some of us contemplate or meditate during our worship. Our type of "church," which we call a Meeting, is often associated with others as a "Peace Church," as peace, non-violence and an opposition to capital punishment are often associated with Friends.

You are welcome.

Tempe Monthly Meeting welcomes you to come and join us in worship. You will be met by a "greeter" at the door who will answer any questions you may have. Dress is very casual. You may dress up if you like, but most of us dress down.
