Eugene Friends Meeting Event Details

Intergenerational Meeting for Worship: The youth program will host an all-ages worship the first Sunday of each month. We invite folks to join us in the West Room at 11:10 a.m. The October theme is Harvesting the Fruits of the Spirit. Friends often refer to the fruits of the spirit, which are those things that grow in our hearts (like love, joy, and peace). We could talk about how to cultivate our fruits, but what about the harvest? Paul says, “At just the right time, we will reap a harvest of blessing if we don’t give up. (Galatians 6:9). Join us for a lively harvest time! Contact the Children’s Religious Education Clerk.

First Sunday Potluck: Join each first Sunday at the Meetinghouse for a potluck gathering. All are welcome, please join us even if you did not bring an item to share; we always have plentiful food!

EFM Earthcare Support Meeting: Please join our group! We are meeting every month on the first Monday of the month at 7:00 p.m., via zoom, to share our ideas for creative actions and celebrate our successes. If you want to join us, let me know and the Earthcare Coordinator will send the link. Contact Earthcare Ministry Coordinator.

Worship Sharing: Sunday, October 8, at 12:45 p.m. Join us on the second Sunday for hybrid (either in person at the Meeting House or via Zoom) worship sharing. This month’s theme the First Day School leader will share her ministry of Sacred Story: The Second Creation. All ages welcome! The gathered Friends will go into Worship and allow the Spirit to inspire sharing out of the Worship. Contact the Ministry and Counsel Clerk. 

Earthcare Sunday Butterfly Event: Sunday, October 15, 12:15-1 p.m. Theme TBA. Go to the Earthcare blog for more information.

“Let Our Lives Speak: How Do We Discern Our Personal Testimonies?” is the theme for Quaker Studies 2023-24. Our next session is Wednesday, October 25, 2023, 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. via zoom. The Adult Religious Education Committee invites newcomers and long-time Friends to join us as we delve deeper into what it means to be a Friend and how we put our faith into practice. A Testimony in Quaker parlance has nothing to do with courtrooms. It is an outward expression in response to the promptings of the Inward Light as experienced in worship and prayer. Our format will be the same as last year with a brief introduction by a member of the committee, followed by small worship sharing groups. These opportunities to learn from each other and to deepen our connections are at the heart of Quaker Studies. We will also recommend relevant resources such as excerpts from NPYM Faith and Practice and links to online articles and Quaker Speak videos. For more information and to register, contact the Adult Religious Education Clerk.
