Meetings for Worship are held weekly in Brainerd MN. Our Meeting shares space with the Brainerd UCC church and uses the upstairs meeting rooms for worship in the winter/spring months, and the rainbow meeting room in the UCC lower level during warmer summer months.
- 9 a.m. -- 10:30 a.m., Sunday Mornings
- Meeting room at Brainerd UCC church, corner of 5th and Juniper Streets near Gregory Park
Meetings begin by gathering and quieting ourselves for worship. Each week a volunteer member brings a selected reading, most often from our book Quaker Faith and Practice (Religious Society of Friends [Quakers], Great Britain). The first 45 minutes of Meeting for Worship are spent in silent worship, followed by 45 minutes of group discussion that often uses the initial reading as a springboard.
On the first Sunday of each month, silent worship is followed by Meeting for Business, a time for our group to bring forth social and personal concerns, review and act on budget/giving agenda items, plan for social outreach and future gatherings, discuss youth education, and other topics.
Meetings for Worship followed by a potluck lunch are scheduled in members' homes and take place approximately every other month.
