Some resources for personal support from the Meeting are:

  • Clearness committees – Often used when seeking direction, making a decision, or thinking through a situation. (Clearness committees are also used with requests for membership or marriage under the care of the Meeting.)
  • Opportunities – Two or three Friends come to worship with you, usually in your home, with or without ensuing discussion.
  • Care committees – A small group meets with you for spiritual, and maybe practical, support during a situation of special need.

These resources are available for anyone in the Meeting dealing with difficult situations, including grief, parenting, marriage/couple issues, economic stress, etc, or for counsel related to leadings, spiritual growth, gifts and ministry, or relationship to the Meeting. Contact the Ministry and Counsel Committee to arrange.

As of October 2017, the members of Ministry and Counsel are:

John Kraft (committee clerk), Stephen Snyder, Carolyn Vandendolder, Nancy Helfrich, Heidi Flores, Terry Kayser, Sandy Olson, Nettie Smith, Keitha Herron, Bill Hendricks.
