State of the Meeting Report
Each year monthly meetings and worship groups are asked to reflect on the spiritual condition of the group and communicate this to the yearly meeting’s Ministry and Nurture Committee. The Ministry and Nurture Committee reviews these responses prior to Annual Sessions. Meetings are asked to get these to the clerk of the Ministry & Nurture Committee by the end of June. Insight from past State of the Meeting Reports has guided the programs of the Ministry & Nurture Committee.
