Red Cedar Friends Meeting

The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Lansing


We meet for worship at 9 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. each Sunday at 1400 Turner St., Lansing, Michigan.

At our meeting for worship, Friends gather in expectant silence, out of which those who are led to speak offer vocal ministry. Red Cedar Friends Meeting is an unprogrammed Quaker meeting. Unprogrammed meetings do not have pastors, a formal program for worship, organized communal prayers, or planned hymn-singing.

As a community, we are committed to traditional Quaker testimonies of equality, simplicity, stewardship, integrity, community, and peace. We are open, affirming, and appreciative of spiritual seekers.. We are diverse by age, and people come from many religious backgrounds and traditions.
