Caddo Area Friends Meeting

We are a community of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) who meet on Saturdays (NOTE: Not Sunday) in Texarkana, Texas.

The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers) originated in the United Kingdom in the 17th century. Our work and worship arise from a belief that we all receive from God a measure of inner essence that both connects us to Him and to each other. Caddo Area Friends Meeting is a Friends General Conference affiliate, and a part of South Central Yearly Meeting. Postings on this page are social media and should not considered to be the official position of the meeting.
