We'd love to have you join us for worship. The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) is not a closed community but a group of seekers like you.
Penn Valley Friends Meeting is an "unprogrammed Meeting." The Quaker worshipping community has traditionally been called a Meeting for Worship. The worship is "unprogrammed" because there is no order of service and we have no pastor or minister.
We worship in a "meeting house" instead of a church. Historically Friends (Quakers) believed that the adornments of churches are a distraction to true worship. The meeting house of Penn Valley Friends is a converted home in a residential neighborhood of Kansas City at 4405 Gillham Road, .3 miles north of Cleaver II Boulevard, 1 mile east of the Plaza.
