EFM Earthcare Support Meeting: Please join our group! We are meeting every month on the first Monday (September 6) at 7 p.m., by zoom, to share our ideas for creative actions and celebrate our successes.

Worship Sharing: Advices and Queries on Witness- Sunday, September 12, 12:45 – 2 p.m. via zoom. Since the very beginning of the Society of Friends, Advices and Queries have served as an opportunity for individual and corporate self-examination. Ministry and Counsel invites you to reflect on the theme of Witness and how it has manifested in your life experience.

Ministry and Counsel wants to hear from each and every one of you—members and attenders, young and old—about your thoughts on the future form of Meeting for Worship.

Here’s some queries to consider:

-We have practiced different forms of worship during the pandemic, what forms of have been spiritually meaningful for you?

-How do you feel about a hybrid meeting for worship merging our in-person and virtual meetings?

-How do you feel about options of either a cell phone in the meeting house or using a neighbor’s wifi to connect to the internet, and bring meetings together?

-What input would you offer on implementing a merged meeting involving a microphone and speakers in the meetinghouse?

Beach Clean-Up: 

Join us at Heceta Beach, north of Florence, on Saturday, September 25, 10 a.m. – 1 p.m., for this annual event sponsored by SOLVE. Register here. The EFM Earthcare Group and the Children’s Committee are organizing this together, as a community opportunity to help keep our beaches healthy! Bring gloves, a face mask, reusable bucket or bag, a water bottle, and an old colander to sift the sand for tiny bits of plastic and cigarette butts, which can be harmful to shore birds and marine life. A mask or face-covering is required during check-in and at any time when social-distancing is not possible. SOLVE will provide recycled trash bags and disposable work gloves. Check-in and receive supplies in the lobby of Driftwood Shores Resort. Contact the EFM Earthcare Coordinator.
