For Newcomers

PFM_Linda_Brochure_OutsideEspecially if you are new to Quaker meeting, you may find browsing some of the selections below helpful.

The quickest introduction is our brochure. (Click here for electronic version.)  Also see our pages on Discovering the Quaker Way.

The items below are part of the newcomer’s packet available to you at meeting for worship every Sunday at 10:30 AM.

Also, you may be interested in the long history of Quakers in Howard County. And Meeting the Spirit, an booklet by Hans Weening provides a good introduction to Quakerism.

How we print hard copies to share at Meeting (for reference):

  • Envelope: the packets are provided in a 7.5 x 10.5 size envelope. The envelope is sized to make it convenient to add other pamphlets available from our pamphlet racks. Such envelopes without clasps can be printed in a standard printer and are available from for $9.99 per 100. The cover page files above are set for an 8.5 x 11 paper size, centered, but if you have an envelope feeder, which may be a supplemental “tray” in the back of the printer, you can feed the envelopes through that and may not need to make any paper size adjustments. Test on a scrap sheet of paper first to ensure it prints as you expect.
  • Sheets: The paper colors we use for each of the enclosures listed above, respectively, are cream, blue, green, yellow, and pink. We print the introduction for worship to fit onto half a sheet, double-sided.
