About Grand Rapids Friends Meeting

Friends (Quakers) have been meeting in the Grand Rapids, Michigan area for over 50 years. Currently, our meeting averages 12 to 20 worshippers each First Day (Sunday) at the Browne Center on the campus of Aquinas College in Grand Rapids. Meeting begins at 10:30 a.m.

Our meeting follows an unprogrammed style of worship and is part of the Green Pastures Quarterly Meeting and the Lake Erie Yearly Meeting under the umbrella of Friends General Conference (FGC).

All are welcome!
