Our Work in the World
Quakers strive to live our faith in all that we do. We have always held a vision of a world transformed. Our belief in the ultimate value of every individual inspires our social justice work.
Some of us are involved in the work of Quaker organizations such as the American Friends Service Committee. Some join with members of other churches in the local chapter of F.A.I.T.H. (Fighting Against Injustice Towards Harmony). Some put our values into action in community organizing. All of us seek to create a world in which the sacred dignity of each person receives the care it deserves.
Along with the American Friends Service Committee:
We seek a world free of war and the threat of war.
We seek a society with equity and justice for all.
We seek a community where every person's potential may be fulfilled.
We seek an earth restored.
We are a presence in the DeLand community, helping with local events such as the DeLand Fall Festival of the Arts, the Martin Luther King Day celebration, and the Mardi Gras dog parade.
