About Friends, Monthly/Quarterly/Yearly Meetings

Wikipedia has information about Quakerism. The following brief introduction is intended to simply explain College Park Quarterly Meeting’s context in the Society of Friends.

There are unprogrammed and programmed Friends meetings for worship. Unprogrammed Friends meetings gather in silence for worship, and programmed meetings usually have a pastor and have worship similiar to Protestant services. Local meetings, which have weekly meetings for worship, are called monthly meetings because they hold a meeting for the purpose of business once a month. They are organized by geographic region into larger quarterly meetings, which are organized into yet-larger yearly meetings. CPQM is a gathering of unprogrammed monthly meetings in northern California and northern Nevada (list of meetings). It is a part of Pacific Yearly Meeting (PYM).

Another quarterly meeting in PYM is the Southern California Quarterly Meeting, which includes meetings and worship groups in southern California and southern Nevada. Pacific Yearly Meeting also includes meetings in Hawaii and Mexico that are not part of a quarterly meeting.

The yearly meetings for programmed meetings in this area are Evangelical Friends Church Southwest and Western Association of the Religious Society of Friends, which includes churches in Berkeley, Whittier, and Bakersfield, California.
