Southeastern Yearly Meeting
Gathering & Annual Sessions
April 16 - 20, 2014
United Methodist Life Enrichment Center, Fruitland Park, Florida
The Gathering is an exciting, energizing, & joyful experience! Friends from all over the SEYM region gather for 5 relaxed days in a beautiful natural environment on Lake Griffin, enjoying diverse workshops, retreat sessions, the annual business sessions, worship sharing, the Saturday night Walton Lecture, and much more. Once you go, it's likely you'll keep coming back after making friends from all over Florida and our wider Quaker community.
This year we celebrate 50 Years of Southeastern Yearly Meeting with Yearly Meeting and Monthly Meeting histories, stories-- even cake! The theme of this year's Gathering, and the title of our Walton Retreat & Lecture, is:
Quakers in the 21st Century:
How do we address our traditional testimonies in our modern, electronically-driven world?
Teens and Young Friends have a great time, too!
Our Youth Program has a full slate of fun activities, supported by an enthusiastic staff of Youth Program leaders, Guest teachers, and certified SEYM Child Care Workers.
