Here are a few Quaker Myths,

visit with us learn more!

  • Quakers are not all dead. We are alive and active in our communities and world.
  • Quakerism is not a philosophy. It is a religion with its roots in the Judeo-Christian tradition.
  • We are not Amish. We use electricity and drive cars and motorcycles. One of our members has a bright yellow motorcycle with a sidecar – he might even take you for a ride some day!
  • Quakers do not wear grey all the time. We wear all manner and colors of clothing, ranging from Brooks Brothers and Tommy Hilifiger to Birkenstocks and tie dye. Not much grey clothing happening at our Meeting!
  • We sing, dance, wear jewelry, and makeup, and you will even find a tattoo here and there!
  • None of us looks like the guy on the oatmeal box!
  • And yes, we do have a sense of humor!
