About ILYM

ILYM is a spiritual community of Quakers, also known as the Religious Society of Friends. Though the individuals in this community attend some 21 affiliated local Meetings across four states, each summer the Meeting gathers in a retreat near McNabb, Illinois to worship together and to conduct the business of the community. This business includes issues related to lay ministry, religious education, the practice of faith, volunteer service, public witness, publications, Meetinghouse site improvement, and finances. The ILYM Meetinghouse is also the worship site for Clear Creek Friends, as well as for workshops, retreats and committee meetings.



Fall Continuing Committee

The Fall  Continuing Committee will be held on Saturday, October 10, at the ILYM meetinghouse hosted by Clear Creek Meeting (14365 N. 350th Ave., McNabb, IL 61335).  Fellowship with coffee and snacks will be ready at 9:30 a.m. Settling into Worship to seek Divine Guidance for business at hand will begin at 10:00 a.m. Clear Creek Friends will provide lunch. There will be a basket for contributions to cover the modest costs of the meal. The meeting usually concludes between 4:00 and 5:00 p.m.

Continuing Committee is open to all who have concern about the work of ILYM. Each person’s presence (whether delegated or not) will enrich the meeting’s deliberations.
