FGC Services for Orienting New Friends

Friends General Conference offers many programs and services helpful for meetings in welcoming and orienting new Friends. Here are a few of the most pertinent: FGC’s Advancement and Outreach (A&O) Committee: This committee produces an Inreach/ Outreach Packet designed to help meetings explore how to become more welcoming and how to integrate newcomers into the life of the meeting. It includes guidelines and handouts for a workshop focused on knitting together and deepening the meeting community, while reaching out to visitors and newcomers. Most of the materials in the packet are available on the A&O Committee Web page🔒
