A Worship Group is a gathering of persons who meet regularly for worship after the manner of Friends and desire to be identified with the principles and practices of the Religious Society of Friends. Such a group may organize independently or may be set up with the encouragement of a Monthly Meeting for Friends and other interested persons living in a certain area. [pg 78]
…As a Worship Group develops, it is encouraged to relate itself to an established Monthly Meeting by asking to come under its care…. [T]his action does not presume any particular path of development. It does, however, establish an official relationship with the Religious Society of Friends and provides an avenue for membership, which comes only through a Monthly Meeting. [pg 78]
…The development of organization in a Worship Group follows no set pattern and proceeds only as necessary or desirable for the Group. [pg 79]
