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.
How do we center our lives in the awareness of God the Spirit, so that all things may take their rightful places?
In centering our lives we need body, mind and spirit — not just our minds.
