We are a Quaker meeting on Grand Avenue in Saint Paul offering unprogrammed meeting for worship, including youth programs for children and teens.
Twin Cities Friends Meeting (TCFM) practices unprogrammed silent worship, without ministers or prepared ministry of any kind. We wait together silently in faith that divine spirit, or an irresistible sense that we have a message to share with our fellow worshipers, may visit us at any time. Everyone, including families with children, non-theists, and people of all genders and sexualities, is welcome to join us in worship.
TCFM is affiliated with Northern Yearly Meeting and Friends General Conference.
During the COVID lockdown we have maintained weekly meeting for worship online, and we are now meeting both online and in person. Committees have kept up their work on Zoom. Our First Day School program has kept community alive by meeting outdoors for fun activities and service projects. TCFM's community has been coming together to support work for racial and economic justice, both with personal effort and organizational gifts. The pandemic has given us occasion to reconsider how we worship, work, discern, and relate to one another, and we are actively engaged in shaping the new normal for our community.
