Morningside Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, formed in 1973, is a welcoming, diverse community of individuals living the Quaker testimonies of equality, integrity, simplicity, stewardship of the earth, and peace.
We gather for silent worship every First Day (Sunday) morning at 11 o’clock. Traditionally, we meet at Riverside Church in Manhattan. Currently we hold hybrid meetings, with most members attending via Zoom and a small number gathering together and connecting from Riverside. All are welcome.
Meeting for Worship Morningside Meeting will hold our next meeting for worship on May 22 at 11 a.m.: a hybrid in-person/remote meeting for worship, followed by afterwords, announcements, and introductions of visitors and those new to Morningside. The virtual meeting room will be open at 10:45 a.m. for Friends and attenders to begin to gather. If you are new to Morningside, or not on the email list, and wish to attend, please email: email@example.com.
At 1 pm the Racial Justice Study Group will meet. Peter Murchison, Gun Violence Prevention Coordinator, NYYM Witness Coordinating Committee, whose nephew was killed at Sandy Hook Elementary School by the same type of Bushmaster weapon that the shooter used in Buffalo, will open our Racial Justice Study Group on Sunday. That will be followed by a reading of the names of the deceased, which will then be followed by worship sharing.
For those who wish to participate at Morningside worship in person, please note the following:
- In-person Meeting for Worship will occur at Riverside Church on the 12th Floor.
- You must reserve a place in-advance via a link that will be sent later this week.
Morningside Meeting Ministry and Counsel is a committee charged with the pastoral care of the meeting. Members are available to answer questions about Quakerism, about Friends Meeting, and to provide support. To reach the committee, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Friends are reminded that our Religious Society took form in times of disturbance, and that its continuing testimony has been the power of God to lead men and women out of the confusions of outward violence, inward sickness, and all other forms of self-will, however upheld by social convention.
