Swannanoa Valley Friends Currently Not Meeting

SPECIAL NOTICE from Presiding Clerk

Friends and visitors,

I met with Ministry and Counsel Committee March 13, 2020, and we discerned the need to close our meetinghouse until further notice.  This decision arose out of our concern for the health of f/Friends, visitors, and to support nationwide efforts at controlling the spread of the pandemic Coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Please check back for updates on the status of our meetinghouse.  We are holding our world in the Light for guidance and support during this time.

Should you have any questions, please contact us using the contact information in this website.

In the Light,

Michael Galovic

Swannanoa Valley Friends Meeting




Former Content of the Home Page

Swannanoa Valley Friends Meeting is a faith community in Black Mountain, North Carolina deeply rooted in the principles of the Religious Society of Friends, the Quakers. We believe that all people have within them the inner light of the Divine and so our worship is open to everyone.

Although currently we are not holding meeting, formerly we met  for silent worship on Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. and Wednesdays from 7:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.  at the Meetinghouse located at 137 Center Avenue in Black Mountain.  Swannanoa Valley Friends Meeting is an unprogrammed Meeting; because we recognize that all people have access to divine wisdom, we have no identified clergy. Rather, we gather to wait in expectant silence for ministry arising from the “still small voice”  (I Kings 19:12) within and from any who may be prayerfully led to speak.

Please join us.
