YM transition talk draws 12 churches

All monthly meetings remain full members for now

Members of 12 Friends churches gathered at North Valley last week to discuss starting a new yearly meeting. But nobody’s out yet.

“All churches will remain full members of Northwest Yearly Meeting,” according to the minutes from Saturday, “until the transfer takes place on or before June 2018.”

Local churches with representation at Saturday’s meeting included the following:

  • Camas
  • Eugene
  • Hillsboro
  • Klamath Falls
  • Newberg
  • North Seattle
  • North Valley
  • Salem
  • Second Street
  • Silverton
  • Tigard
  • West Hills

A transition team tasked with making decisions about yearly meeting assets has its first meeting scheduled for March 18. The next yearly-meeting-organized gathering for those interested in forming a new yearly meeting will be held at Eugene Friends Church on Saturday, April 22.

Questions for the transition team can be directed to NWYM Superintendent Retha McCutchen by email – [email protected]
