Virtual Worship for Friends of Color Registration

In 2018, Friends General Conference began hosting virtual worships for People of Color. FGC established this practice as a result of a request by Friends of Color who participated in a retreat that summer. During that weekend Friends of Color expressed their pain of feeling oppressed in their meeting which caused them to stop attending. These Friends were clear that Quakerism and worship was core to their lives and wanted an opportunity to continue to worship in community. FGC agreed to support these Friends with providing monthly virtual worships on Zoom. These worships are provided as a place for Friends of Color to come together in community and worship in an environment with Friends who experience marginalization in their lives and Quaker meetings because they are a person of Color.

During this time of the global COVID-19 pandemic, FGC has agreed to increase these virtual worships to occur on a more regular basis. There are two weekly virtual meetings for worship. 

Like at all FGC events, we have a no-harassment policy in place during our time together, which you can read here.

The midday weekly worship is on Wednesdays at 1PM ET / 12PM CT / 11AM MT / 10AM PT / 7AM HT. 

An evening weekly worship is every other Wednesday at 8PM ET / 7PM CT / 6PM MT / 5PM PT / 2PM HT. 

These weekly worships will be in addition to the already-scheduled monthly meetings for worship, which happen on the third Sunday of each month at 8:00 PM ET / 7:00 PM CT / 6:00 PM MT / 5:00 PM PT / 2PM HT.

If you identify and live as a Person of Color and would like to join us, please complete this form. You only need to register once and will receive regular reminder emails about the events.
