FGC staff are excited about this new Quaker initiative and wanted to be sure you heard about it.

Quaker Voluntary Service equips the work and witness of Friends by providing support to a network of Quaker service communities. The first community will launch this fall under the spiritual care of the Atlanta Friends Meeting. 

Growing out of a 2009 consultation supported by the FGC’s former Youth Ministries Committee, a dedicated group of volunteers has worked hard to make this vision a reality.  Christina Repoley, a long-time FGC volunteer, has recently been appointed the first Executive Director of QVS.  Visit the QVS website to learn more about this exciting new initiative, and their first cohort of volunteers.

FGC will feature news about other Quaker Organizations. There's a lot going on and we want you to know about it.
