GPQM Annual Worship and Picnic, August 8, in Battle Creek

Every year in early August Green Pastures Quarterly Meeting remembers the anniversary of the atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki and celebrates peace in the historic Quaker Park in Battle Creek.

GPQM will hold an in-person worship planned for 11 a.m., August 8, outdoors at Quaker Park. Worship will be followed by a picnic, with Friends may bring a chair/blanket, food, and beverage. Friends who are able and comfortable sharing food are welcome to and those who are not are welcome to share others company during the picnic. We will remain attentive to public health advice from the State of Michigan and adjust our plans as necessary.
