We are a small Quaker worship community in South Minneapolis. You are most welcome to look over this website to learn more about us. We hope you’ll be able to join us in our worship in the future.
UPDATE for WINTER 2014: Unfortunately, we are unable to convene worship that is open to the public at this time. We hope to re-open our worship later this year. A small group of Friends who remain active with either the meeting or with the yearly meeting* are gaining clarity regarding next steps.
If you have questions about worshiping either with Laughing Waters Friends or with other Friends meetings in the area, please contact the clerk at laughingwaters.friends AT gmail DOT com.
*Yearly meeting is a regional body of Quakers with which Laughing Waters Friends is affiliated.
Worship time: As of 1 Ninth Month 2013 (Sept 1), we are uncertain when we will resume worship. Previously, most weeks we gathered for worship at 4:30 pm on Sundays (First Day). Every other month on the 3rd Sunday, we often have gathered at 4:00 pm to address business. At this time, we are uncertain when we will resume our meetings for worship for business. For last minute changes in time or location, we do our best to update this page (see “Notes,” below), or click on the link for Timely News.
Location: As of 1 Ninth Month 2013 (Sept 1), we are no longer worshiping at a regular location at this time. To find out if we are holding worship or another gathering, please send an email to lizopp AT gmail DOT com.
Laughing Waters Friends now is formally affiliated with Iowa Yearly Meeting (Conservative) as a preparative meeting. The use of the word “Conservative” among Friends has nothing to do with political views or social issues. If you have questions about what this means, please contact us or speak to us on a First Day (Sunday). You can email us (laughingwaters.friends AT gmail DOT com) to get more information.
Every other month, we usually have a worship that addresses the business of Laughing Waters. Our next regular Meeting for Worship with attention to Business has not been scheduled.
In addition, from time to time we have an intergenerational worship where all the adults and youth are together. We currently don’t have plans for our next scheduled intergenerational worship.
