Register for Quarterly Gathering

Come join us on October 20th at Eugene Friends Church for a day’s worth of activities – worship, music, a learning experience, meals, and even fun. We’ll also discuss the central question facing us: “Who does God want us to become?”

Please register soon by sending an email to registrar@scymf.org. Please state in your email:
  • Your name and the names of whoever is coming with you
  • Are you bringing children? If so, how many and how old are they?
  • Do  you need a ride to Eugene? Or can you give someone else a ride? If so, from where?
  • Will you need place to stay the night?
 
 
Finance Committee

The Finance Committee is looking to add from 2–6 additional members. The role of this committee is to serve as financial stewards on behalf of Sierra-Cascades Yearly Meeting of Friends (SCYMF). Because SCYMF is brand new, much of the committee’s work will be to respond to the rising ministries and project leadings in which God is calling SCYMF to collectively engage.

If you excel at money management, bring wisdom and discernment into your business decisions, and have a passion for stewarding financial resources to liberate people to engage in God’s transformative work, then we would love to have you join our group. Please fill out the online nominations form at https://www.scymfriends.org/nominations-form. You may also use the form to nominate others to this committee. If you have any questions, contact nominating@scymf.org.
