Lake Wales Worship Group
of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers)
All are welcome to join us for unprogrammed Quaker Worship on Sunday mornings. We are a diverse and inclusive community of people who support each other in our spiritual journeys and work for positive change in the world.
Our meeting for worship is based in silence, with no sermon, ritual, or music. All are ministers, sharing in the silence and vocal ministry in worship. We have no need for clergy.
At the heart of the Quaker faith is the personal experience of an inward teacher, or Light Within—the source of spiritual growth, guidance and transformation that is present in all people, regardless of religion or culture. ‘That of God in everyone’ is a phrase often used by Friends. Relying on the experience and guidance of the Spirit, we have no need for a shared set of beliefs.
For Quakers, faith is about how you live. Simplicity, Peace, Integrity, Community, Equality, and Sustainability are our testimonies to living in the Light.
Lake Wales Worship Group is affiliated with Southeastern Yearly Meeting (SEYM) and Friends General Conference (FGC). We are in the unprogrammed, or ‘liberal’ branch of the Religious Society of Friends, also known as Quakers.
