Introduction to Faithfulness Groups

Nurturing Faithfulness is a multi-generational faith and leadership program to help Friends in New England explore ways to meet God more deeply, hone methods of discernment, reach for fuller faithfulness, and ultimately bring these gifts and strengthened abilities home to their local meetings and beyond. The program is structured to set in place support, encouragement, and accountability.  

Some of the course materials from the 2017-2018 class at Woolman Hill are shared in the downloads section below with the hope that other Friends will find them useful.  For a more extensive collection of materials about Faithfulness Groups, check out Marcelle Martin's blog here.
