Membership Report June 2021

1. On 6/9 after Chalice Circle Mariah Springstead said she was ready to commit to Wy'east. I proposed waiting till September when Craig is back and we might be meeting in person and she agreed with that timing. I ran this by Craig and he endorsed it so this will be a great way to start the fall.  If we are able to meet in person at that time we could also expand the ceremony to include the 7 new members that have joined us on Zoom. It was great to see her and her family at the picnic.


2. After sharing emails with Diane I. we agreed to stop doing our monthly member phone tree check ins. I feel we have kept our membership connected during the pandemic and can now start preparing for our return as a regular functioning committee to HSC. I will be spending time during July and August at HSC taking inventory of our supplies to make sure we are ready to go back to in person services  when HSC opens up, hopefully September .


3. Attendance was down a bit in June although we did have 48  on the 13th and I didn't get a head count for Craig's final sermon on the 20th although we did have 37 for his sermon on the 6th. We rose to a new low on the 27th of 18 attending our GA service which is interesting. I had scheduled a Path to Membership Class on that day but we had no visitors and no prior visitors had committed to attend.


4. The Coffee Hour, Chalice Circle and Lilac Meadows continue to run smoothly.


That's it for June!
