Map and Directions

Every three years, the global community of Friends United Meeting gathers to celebrate our life together, to grow in our ability to serve the world, and to worship Christ our Lord!

Along with our Triennial host, Great Plains Yearly Meeting, FUM invites and welcomes Quakers from all over the world to join us in Wichita, Kansas, on July 12–16, 2017. We will meet on the campus of Friends University, and look forward to seeing you there.


Over the coming months, we will finalize the complete Triennial Schedule and include it in the registration packet we will mail to you in advance of your arrival in Wichita. Plan on plenty of opportunities for worship, small group activities, and forums that will energize you, equip you, and connect you with other members of FUM.  A very active program for young Friends will be available, as well as childcare for our littlest Friends.

Our speakers for this Triennial will use themes from Thomas Kelly's book, The Eternal Promise, as we rekindle our spiritual passion and ready ourselves to be the Children of Light in our communities and around the world.  Here are some daily highlights for our upcoming gathering:
