We are located at 3415 W. Markham Street, at the corner of Markham & Valmar streets, with the entrance to our parking lot on Valmar. Our meetings are open to all who wish to worship.*
*Before you come, please see our COVID-19 Illness page. As of March 15, 2020 we host special "virtual" meetings so Friends do not have to risk their health traveling to or gathering at the Meeting House. Please email or call us for information about joining us.
Little Rock Friends Meeting publishes The Carillon, a print magazine for (and supported by) Quakers in Arkansas and beyond. For more information about The Carillon, contact firstname.lastname@example.org
The Way We Worship
Our form of worship is based on expectant waiting in silence with no professional minister. In the silence of this unprogrammed worship, God can draw near to us and we to God. This silence is often experienced as liberating. There is no prepared sermon, but anyone is free to speak, provided she or he does so in response to a prompting of the Spirit. Such a message may draw us together and closer to God. Some people may have a profound sense of awe and wonder, because they know that God is present. Others may become aware of a powerful spirit of love and truth that transcends their ordinary experience. At the end of an hour, the clerk will shake hands with a neighbor; each worshiper will then shake the hand of their neighbor. This ends the meeting for worship.
Children are welcome to attend worship, although we also have a separate children's program. Those who attend the children's program join worship during the last five minutes.
