Query: Meetings for Business|
Are our Meetings for Worship with a Concern for Business held in the spirit of worship, seeking the guidance of God? In what ways do we each take our right share of responsibility in the service of the Meeting?

Social Concerns Box
The Social Concerns Box for December is for A Wider Circle. A Wider Circle (AWC) is a non-profit organization that assists individuals and families transitioning out of shelters to more stable living situations by providing 'basic need items' such as furniture. During the month of December, AWC seeks to make the holidays a time of joy for these families by providing new holiday gifts to them.
