President’s Perspectives

As many Tapestrians know, there is so much more to our congregation than Sunday service.  If you’ve only been attending on Sunday morning, whether for a few weeks or a few years, you may be missing out on some of the best things happening at Tapestry.

But wait, there is a solution to FOMO (Fear of Missing Out)!

Get involved and discover the wide variety of informal, formal, and social action events, committees and groups that are part our thriving congregation.

Like to read?  We’ve got a group or three for that:  Women’s Book Group, Mystery Book Group, Non-Fiction Book Group, as well as the Minister’s Seminar with a new book each month.

Want to get involved in the local community?  Well for a start:  Friends of Orange County Detainees, Women’s Rights Action Group, Green Sanctuary, and feeding the homeless in Laguna Beach

Are you a mom?  We’ve got a group for that.  A woman who likes to lunch with friends?  A knitter? A bridge player? A family with young kids? Yes, yes, yes and yes.

Do you want to work with one of the committees or groups that serves Tapestry?  There are more than a few opportunities there:  Choir, Children’s Religious Education, Ways & Means, Worship, Finance, Communications, Membership, and Hospitality.  Plus many, many others.

And why, you say, should you get involved?

  1. You will become more connected to our congregation as you participate in various activities and get to know people better.
  2. It helps make our community stronger.
  3. It gives you an opportunity to do something you really like to do, whether it’s working with kids, planning the financial future of the congregation, or helping craft the worship service.
  4. Tapestry needs you! You have a unique set of skills and talents that could benefit everyone.
  5. And last but not least, it’s fun!

You don’t need to take the plunge all at once.  Just dip a toe in the water and join a committee or book group.  I’ll look forward to seeing you there.
