The Advancement and Outreach Committee (A&O) helps ensure that newcomers can find our Meeting and feel welcomed. Our mission is to nurture the awareness, knowledge, and understanding of Quakerism to those inside and outside our Meeting, whether new to Quakerism or not so new. Our activities have included: obtaining signs and advertising; creating and gathering literature for the newcomer packet and literature rack; and offering study and discussion group opportunities for Friends.
Study and discussion groups may be organized by any committee or even by individuals on occasion. Blog posts relating to such sessions can be found here.
Also, blog posts relating to the committee more generally can be found here.
The committee developed the guidelines below for our greeters, which can be found here.
