The Wider Fellowship of Conservative Friends is an outreach effort of Ohio Yearly Meeting, creating a safe space for Friends of like mind, or who are curious about the witness of Conservative Friends.

Stillwater Meeting HouseThe Wider Fellowship hosts a General Gathering once every two years, typically during the month of June, in Barnesville, Ohio. Though the Gathering is sponsored by Friends from Ohio Yearly Meeting, we hope that everyone, regardless of their Yearly Meeting affiliation (or lack thereof) will feel welcome to attend. We especially invite our brothers and sisters from Iowa and North Carolina Yearly Meetings (Conservative), with whom we share a long and important history.

On the last day of the feast Jesus stood up and said in a loud voice, “Let anyone  who is thirsty come to me and drink, If anyone believes in me, rivers of living water  will flow from that person’s heart, as the Scripture says.” John 7:37, 38  Our desire is that we wait together to drink in this Christ. Come  with a thirst for Him and Him only. It has been our experience  that when we come to Him empty of self-centered desires we will  receive food of a heavenly type that the world knows nothing  about.

Dear Friends of Jesus,

All Conservative Friends, and those of like mind, are invited to share in a weekend feast.  Our desire is that we wait together to drink in this Christ. All are to come with a thirst for Him. “For He came not to heal the healthy, but those who are sick.” It has been our experience that when we come to Him empty of self-centered desires, then (and only then) we will receive food that the world knows nothing about. (John 4:32)  We hope that the gathering of Conservative Friends will be held at the Stillwater Friends Meeting house, in Barnesville, Ohio in 6th Month 2021.. Look for details in the Spring of 2021.

“On the last & most important day of the feast Jesus stood up and said in a loud voice.  ‘Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink. If anyone believes in me, rivers of living water will flow out from that person’s heart.'” Jesus was talking about the Holy Spirit.  John 7:37-38
