Weaving a Tapestry
of LOVE and ACTION!

Please Take Our Interests and Skills Survey

If you haven't already done so, please take a few moments to fill out your Interests and Skills Survey. This is your opportunity to say how you'd like to support Tapestry with your volunteer hours, or sharing a talent. It is also an opportunity to let us know what types of spiritual programs, social action, and fellowship groups you are interested in. You'll be able to check off boxes to show your level of support for a team/program/event:

  • I'll lead
  • I'll help plan and design
  • I'll be on the team or attend a program/event if someone else plans it, or
  • I need more information before I decide if it is right for me.

Choose interests that will nurture yourself and choose ways you will be able to nurture others through giving your time and talent to making something wonderful happen. Please remember to not overextend yourself with your precious resources of time, talent and treasure.
