How to Get More Involved in Boulder Friends Meeting
By attending Meeting for Worship, you become a part of the Boulder Meeting community and a welcome participant in our other activities. Join us each Sunday after worship for refreshments and conversation during the half-hour fellowship time. After fellowship, stay on for the Program Hour or an occasional potluck lunch. Members, attenders, and visitors are all encouraged to attend our Meeting for Worship with a Concern for Business after fellowship on the second Sunday of each month.
Becoming a Member
After you have attended Meeting for Worship for a period of time, you may come to feel that Meeting is a place where your spiritual needs are being met and your gifts can develop and be used. At that point you might consider becoming a member of Boulder Meeting.

Weekly Program Hours: On Sundays after worship and fellowship, programs address many spiritual, social, and personal issues. See Calendar or Miscellany for upcoming topics.
Occasional programs, talks, and group discussions: Committees often organize special activities for the Meeting. See Calendar, Miscellany, or bulletin boards for announcements.
Potluck supper discussions: In March-April each year, small groups meet in private homes to discuss a series of questions proposed by the Ministry & Worship committee. Sign up to attend one that is convenient for you.
Adult education classes: Quaker Studies, offered about every 18 months, is an 8-week course (meeting once a week) offering deeper study and discussion of Friends’ faith and practice, history, and involvement in the world. Other classes and discussion groups may start spontaneously, inspired by interested Friends and open to all. Watch for announcements in this website or Miscellany.
Our Meeting community functions thanks to the willingness of all to pitch in and take responsibility for the maintenance and vitality of the Meeting. We have no designated minister or other paid staff (except for child care and bookkeeping), so volunteers shape all aspects of Meeting life.
By joining a committee, you get to know other Friends and contribute to the dynamic life and development of the Meeting. See Committees to find an activity or topic that interests you. Contact the committee’s convener if you would like to visit a committee meeting or learn more about its current activities. Contact information is available in the Meeting Directory. Some committees can accept new members immediately, and we actively recruit new committee members in February-March to begin serving on May 1.
