Ministry and Oversight

The Ministry and Oversight Committee meets monthly to attend to two functions that are often attended to by paid staff in other denominations.  One function is ministry in which attention is addressed to members and attenders needing special care, welcoming new visitors, and specific concerns for membership, weddings, and memorials.  The other function is oversight in which attention is addressed to the quality of Meetings for Worship and Business, the overall landscape of committee work, and the health of the Meeting. This committee prepares an annual report on the Spiritual State of the Meeting for Baltimore Yearly Meeting. Ministry and Oversight is comprised of recorded members of Blacksburg Friends Meeting. Members and attenders are encouraged to share with any member of M & O any concerns or difficulties so that they may be carried back to the next committee meeting for consideration.
