The theme is . . . and follow me.
Gathering is held annually sponsored by FGC with support from Monthly Meeting and Yearly Meeting volunteers. It is a time to join in beloved community as a welcoming place for all who attend. It is a place to explore the next step in your spiritual journey.
Workshops offer Gathering adults and high school participants the opportunity to be immersed in a topic with other interested Friends.
