Arrangements Committee takes care of the Meeting's logistics. We communicate with the Central Area Senior Center, our landlord. We recruit, train and schedule volunteers to open, set up, greet and close worship, as well as bring refreshments, clean up and lock the building each First Day. We arrange rides for attenders and maintain the directory and the email list.

We also sponsor adult religious education, the annual retreat, and the meeting for remembering. Finally, we act on requests for funds for attending Friends’ gatherings, for following a leading, and for emergency financial aid.

Faith In Action Committee finds ways in which we can act on the peace and justice testimonies of Friends. Recent examples include sending post cards to legislators on gun violence, institutional racism, and the Keystone pipeline, and thinking about how we get to Meeting in the context of global warming. We are working on a poster for SSFM and a banner for us and other area Meetings to use during marches.
