About Miami Monthly Meeting

Miami Monthly Meeting is a spiritual community of Friends (Quakers) in Waynesville, Ohio. Our worship is conducted in the Unprogrammed (Hicksite) tradition of Friends in the White Brick Meetinghouse. Built in 1811, it is the oldest house of worship in continuous use west of the Allegheny Mountains. Other programs and events, such as religious education and fellowship events, also take place in the White Brick Meetinghouse.

Please feel free to download the Miami Monthly Meeting Brochure for all of the information about our Meeting.

Miami Monthly Meeting is strongly committed to the Core Testimonies of Quakerism. Principled among these is the testimony of community, specifically as described in our Faith and Practice as follows: "community can be more than just a group of can embody our testimonies - a way we witness to the world about what we believe to be most important...when community is our testimony, we love our neighbor as ourselves."

In keeping with this testimony, the Miami Monthly Meeting stands firm in our message that All are Welcome. We are continually working to ensure that we are an Anti-Racist community, and stand united with our friends in the LGBTQIA+ community. We believe in equality for all, and we believe that love is love, no matter one's race, gender, sexuality, ethnicity, nationality, or creed. We believe that the Light of God exists in all, and that to deny that light in any one person is to deny all.

Our Meeting for Worship commences every Sunday at 10:45am Eastern Standard Time at the White Brick Meeting House in Waynesville, Ohio. All Are Welcome. Adult First Day School (Religious Education) is conducted at 9:30 am, on dates listed on the Events Calendar Page, and a children's program is available as the need arises. The Meeting's active members continue their involvement on the Friends Home Board of Trustees, and they continue to witness to Friends' historical testimonies.

Do I faithfully attend meeting for worship with heart and mind prepared for worship, clear of any predetermination to speak or not to speak, and expecting that worship will be a source of strength and guidance?
Does worship deepen my relationship with God, increase my faithfulness, and refresh and renew my daily life, both inwardly and in my relationship with others?
Have I experienced in worship that direct leading to listen or to speak, and have I been faithful to my own experience?

Miami Monthly Meeting is affiliated with Ohio Valley Yearly Meeting.
