Visiting a new congregation for the first time can be daunting. You might have questions like: Can anyone visit a Quaker Meeting? What should I wear? What about my kids? Where do I park?”
Each Sunday the Pastoral Care “Friendly Ear” is introduced for visitors or members to ask questions. You can also take a copy of the Newcomer's Packet, BFM's weekly bulletin, our newsletter, and Quaker pamphlets.
