In the Religious Society of Friends, a Yearly Meeting refers to a an organization of Monthly Meetings, Preparatory Meetings, Worship Groups and unaffiliated Friends within a geographical area. (See About SCYM .) Within a Yearly Meeting, many of the tasks will typically be initially addressed and threshed out by committees, but the entire Yearly Meeting will come together once a year, known as the Annual Session, to engage in conducting the business of the Yearly Meeting itself.
Friends within the Yearly Meeting. The gathered meeting seeks to discern the movement of the Spirit and a sense of the Meeting indicating a direction on the issues at hand.
South Central Yearly Meeting holds its Annual Session every year over Easter weekend at Greene Family Camp in Bruceville, TX. (See Green Family Camp website.) Planning for the Annual Session alternates every two years among the Quarterly Meetings. There is a theme presented with keynote speakers and workshops, in addition to opportunities for Worship, spiritual enrichment and attention to business.
