Red Cedar Friends Meeting

The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) in Lansing

Welcome

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.

At this time of conflict in the world, Friends often find strength and inspiration in our Peace Testimony. An early expression of this Testimony is from the 1660 “Declaration from the Harmless and Innocent people of God, called Quakers,” … “We utterly deny all outward wars and strife, and fightings with outward weapons, for any end, or under any pretence whatsoever; this is our testimony to the whole world.”


As a lifelong Quaker, Arthur Larrabee was frustrated that he couldn’t answer the question, “What do Quakers believe?” So he set out to do just that.
