Hello Friends, we have all in one way or another felt the effects of the Covid-19 issues. Our meeting is no different, Several members have not attended, so they can practice Social Distancing, Some members have moved away for the time being of the virus. And some of us have still attended meeting, while still practicing social distancing .
Our parent meeting, Inland Valley Meeting, has set up a Digital Meeting for Worship, using the Zoom program, Their meeting starts at 10:15am on Sunday. If you would like to attending the digital meeting then please download the Zoom app on your mobile device, or on your PC or mac. Once you have the program installed you can join the meeting by clicking on this link. https://csusb.zoom.us/j/252857461
And it will connect you to the Meeting. I will be attending the digital meeting on Sunday, and we can see if it is something we would like to continue to do, attending Inland Valleys Meeting or even hosting out own.

As I have mentioned in the past the Las Vegas Quakers group has been testing out a new room to hold meeting in, room #5 and as of today Sunday 10/2/18 it has been decided that room #5 will suit out needs better than room #2 did.
Room #5 has the following traits:
has its own restroom
did i mention its quieter…
and its $50 cheaper a month to rent
I would like to thank all the members who have been attending our meeting recently to check out the new room.
The Weekly meeting is trying out a new room for meeting that will hopefully be more quiet, then our previous one, it is a bit smaller but comes with its own restroom, and is a bit cheaper then our previous room.
We will be trying out this new room for the next 2 months and then see what the group thinks of it.
The new room for meeting is room #5 which is just a few more doors down on the left if you are looking at our meeting room Door, and you can always look for out meeting sign board.
It is with great sadness and heavy heart that we have to say goodbye to Pastor Steven Todd Willis.
On, July 30th 2018, Pastor Willis and his Wife Sheri were celebrating their first wedding anniversary with a trip to Alaska, when in a tragic turn, their canoe capsized, Sheri and the other passengers survived the ordeal but Pastor Willis did not.
Pastor Willis, you will be missed, you were the face, and heart of the First Christian Church, not to mention a friend to all.
Your light may have faded, but it has not been extinguished, and it shall shine even brighter in the Kingdom of God.
Wanted to let you all know about Western Friend Magazine, Western Friend Magazine is a Quaker based Magazine that specializes in Quakerly things occurring in the West, not only can you subscribe to the magazine but you can also read some of their articles at the Website www.westernfriend.org but we also have lots of back issues on hand in the book cabinet.
So please stop by and check out Western Friends website, but also stop in for a good meeting with us, and read a article or two from Western Friends while you wait.
Tomorrow we will be celebrating World Quaker Day, Friends World Committee is the group that is responsible for hosting this event. The idea behind the event is:
As the sun rises in each area of the world, we want to remember that Quakers are worshiping through every time zone, celebrating our deep connections across cultures and Quaker traditions. We are united in love and can accompany each other on this special day that draws us together. As we worship, let us hold each other in prayer and thanksgiving, and let our hymns of praise resound across the world. The theme Let Your Life Speak: Living the Kabarak Call for Peace and Ecojustice, connects us to the work we did at the World Conference of Friends in 2012 in Kenya, taking the work forward in the context of our spiritual communities.
We will be meeting at a Members house this Sunday (1st Day) to enjoy in the celebration. If you would like to attend then please email me at [email protected]
We will post pictures of this event as the come about.
We had a great time at the World Quaker Day meetup. We had a good group of approximately 9 in attendance, a great host and an Awesome assortment of store bought and home cooked food.
Jennifer was gracious enough to host this event, thank you Jennifer for an amazing meetup.
