Inland Valley Friends base our work on the following:
Racial, social, and economic justice matter.
Women’s rights are human rights.
No human being is illegal.
Science and climate change are real.
Love is love.
Kindness is everything.
These are based on the testimonies Quakers have lived by for generations.
Inland Valley Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends is unprogrammed, and our meetings for worship last an hour, beginning at 10:15am on Sundays. Taking into consideration COVID concerns, there is a Children’s Program that begins at 10:15am; children rejoin the adult meeting at 11:10am.
“During Meeting for Worship, Friends seek connection to one another and to God dwelling among them. In some Meetings, the vocal ministry will have a common theme, each message deepening and enriching the other, and connecting to one’s own thoughts. Some Meetings are entirely silent.” (Faith and Practice published by Pacific Yearly Meeting, 2001, page 27)
