Red Cup (New) Folks in Pierce Hall After Service

Help make Young Souls a diverse and welcoming space by chatting up new folks in Pierce Hall! Young Souls can feel a bit intimidating before you know anybody, so making a specific effort to reach out to those using a red cup or mug during social hour (meaning they self-identify as new, or as a guest) is a great way to make this community as approachable and welcoming as it can be. If you meet someone who wants to join the Young Souls listserv, write down their email address and email it to the Young Souls Board at youngsoulsboard@googlegroups.com.
