Focus Group on Engagement & Belonging: August 16

(August, 2022)
Tuesday, August 16, 2-3:15 p.m.
In person in the sanctuary at 4 Palmer St.
Please rsvp to reserve your spot (see link below)!

An exploration of “how we’re doing” at welcoming, engaging, and integrating new participants.

How welcoming are we, really? How easy is it for newcomers to the fellowship (or even longer-term attendees) to find ways to become meaningfully involved? Our recently adopted 8th Principle reminds us that simply saying “All are welcome” when we host fellowship activities is not enough. If you have ideas about how we might become more welcoming, or if you yourself have found it difficult to experience belonging at the fellowship, please join in this important Focus Group conversation.

How to join in this focus group:

In order to facilitate our transition to in-person gatherings, we have activated two new online forms: one for reserving a spot and one for registering your vaccination record (read our congregational guidelines). Use this link to specify which service or gathering you plan to attend.

If you prefer to register for a gathering by phone, please contact Jo El Miano at or call 518-578-5821.
