A Quaker Meeting in Camas, WA
We are a programmed Quaker meeting in Camas Washington and are a part of the Northwest Yearly Meeting of Friends. We meet every Sunday morning at 10:45am for worship in song, prayer, discussion and silence. And welcome you to visit us or contact us for more information.
We are, as our name suggests, “Friends of Jesus (John 15:14-15).” We are a community committed to following the way of Jesus who we understand to be Lord of the cosmos. We are also a community that takes very seriously our Quaker tradition and its practices. We see living the way of Christ as being connected to and flowing out of our faith tradition. Quaker practices help us be the kind of community able to follow Jesus in a world often hostile to his life and message.
We believe in participatory worship. We believe that God moves within, speaks to, calls and loves all people and so we try to make space for each person to have a voice. This is also why we worship in a way that gives us time to practice listening to God. We are each ministers, Christ is at the head rather than a pastor or bishop.
We also recognize that each person’s spiritual life is a journey filled with many questions, thus faith is less about being right and having everything figured out and more about learning and living out faith with fear and trembling. We try and be a non-anxious presence in our world where this can be worked out.
To love God and love people.
To bring people to Christ,
To develop an ever-deepening
Relationship with Him, and
To meet the needs of others.
God would have Friends in the NWYM model, encourage, teach and facilitate the growth of deep spiritual communion with the Spirit of Christ in people of all ages.
As this spiritual communion transforms our hearts into the image of Christ, His compassion will be expressed to the lost, wounded and disenfranchised of the world.
To grow up into Christlikeness and to live out that Christlikeness in the world.
