Welcome to Reno Friends Meeting and the Quaker Community of Northern Nevada and Lake Tahoe!
Our Meeting is a gathering place for Quakers and those of all faiths drawn to the Quaker tradition of silent worship and to Quaker values such as simplicity, community, integrity, nonviolence, equality and harmony with nature.
Each Sunday morning at 10, we come together for an hour of silent worship, followed by refreshments and fellowship. Please consider joining us on an upcoming Sunday!
Our Meeting House is located just east of the University of Nevada Reno campus at 497 Highland Avenue in Reno.
We also invite you to explore our web site, launched in spring 2014, and learn more about Reno Friends and the international Quaker movement. Here’s a brief guide to what you’ll find inside:
- All About Quakers is full of information about the Religious Society of Friends, a worldwide movement of diverse theological views and experience that has its roots in 17th-century English Protestantism. Quaker is a nickname for the Friends.
- All About Reno Friends offers a window into the Quaker community in Northern Nevada, which is organized as a “meeting,” or what others might call a congregation or church. First-time visitors may find it helpful to read What Happens During Sunday Services. Or try our Might You Be a Quaker? checklist!
- You can stay in touch with all that is happening at Reno Friends Meeting by visiting RFM News (home for our monthly newsletters) and viewing Our Calendar. We explore a different facet of our Meeting each month in Our Blog.
- If you want to find our Meeting House or reach us by phone or email, you’ll find the information you need on the Contact page.
This is the web site for the Reno Monthly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends, a Nevada not-for-profit corporation. Since our formal title is a mouthful, we use the name Reno Friends Meeting in day-to-day conversation. We use the term Quakers interchangeably with Friends.
