Goose Creek Friends Meeting
Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)
oose Creek is a warm and welcoming community where we support each other in our shared journeys of the Spirit. We believe, in the words of the Quaker writer Thomas Kelly, that “deep within us all there is an amazing inner sanctuary of the soul, a holy place, a Divine Center, a speaking Voice, to which we may continuously return.” In our worship and in our daily lives we seek to remain always with our hearts turned toward that Divine Center.
Quakerism is not defined by creeds or doctrine. Rather it is a lived spiritual practice where we seek God in our experiences and live out our faith in our shared world. We believe that there is that of God within each and every human being – adults and children – regardless of faith, race, nationality, sexual orientation, or life experiences. We are called to answer that Divine spark, that Light Within, both in ourselves and in others.
We welcome all seekers, find deep kinship in our shared humanity, and value our differences.
We are re-opening our meeting house, effective Sunday, June 13th! Meeting for Worship will take place in the meeting house from 9:45 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. Please see below for more details.
We will also be continuing to offer Meeting for Worship via Zoom. The Zoom link is shared weekly via the Goose Creek listserv and group email. To request the Zoom link for Meeting for Worship, please contact us at email@example.com.
