THE RELIGIOUS SOCIETY OF FRIENDS (QUAKERS)
The Las Cruces Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends
(Quakers) is a member of the Inter Mountain Yearly Meeting (IMYM). We are
especially active in issues of peace and social concerns, as Quakers have
been historically. We follow the silent meeting form of service in which
members and attenders meet in silence until someone feels moved to speak.
We meet monthly for business (hence the name "monthly meeting") and weekly
on First Day (Sunday) for silent worship. We have no minister, the
meetings for business and worship being convened by the Clerk, who serves
for no longer than two years. The meeting is open to anyone who wishes to
attend regardless of sex, age, sexual orientation, race or marital status.
MEETING FOR WORSHIP (child care provided) Sundays at 10:00 a.m. at Quaker
House, 622 North Mesquite, Las Cruces, NM 88001. Everyone welcome.
Informal dress. For further information, contact Erica Samuel at
(575) 405-3481, or Quaker House at (575) 647-1929. Mailing address: Las
Cruces Friends, P. O. Box 1240, Mesilla Park, NM 88047.
