NEW: BRING YOUR OWN BAG LUNCH
Kids are not charged for entry and are warmly welcomed to attend.
On the second Sundays of the month and for our main, monthly meeting, we hold our speakers’ series program, “Skipping Church – Members Speak”. Come at 1 PM and help set-up and make new friends. There will be a social time and BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH beginning at 1:30 PM, and then one of our own members speaking for about 40-45 minutes on their choice of a subject then followed up by 15 minutes or more of Q&A. Mingling with your community has been proven to enhance your sense of well-being* so please come and join us.
Our group will provide an accepting community where you can feel comfortable no matter your race, creed and sexual orientation as well as you being an important and appreciated part. Find a place and purpose to volunteer. Join in with your friends and community as we become more engaged in spreading our values throughout our larger community. Keep your heart happy and full.
Kids may stay in the adjoining room right next to us and entertain themselves or sit with you and you can still hear and participate in the lecture and discussion. Come early at 1 PM when the library opens and check them out some books. Tell your friends with kids they are more than welcome to come. We love to see your kids! Contact me for more information.
*Gallup polls across 130 countries show that people with higher personal wellbeing are more likely to say they give time, money, or help to their communities. In fact, do-gooders are twice as likely to consider themselves "thriving," rather than "suffering."
