Dear-------,
Greetings from the Chapel Hill Friends Meeting! We are so glad you joined us recently for meeting for worship.

I've enclosed some information about the meeting and our practice to give you more of an idea of what we're about. Please feel free to reach out if you have any questions or would like to talk!

I also want to let you know that we have a great potluck for all on the first Sunday of each month at the rise of meeting (~12:00pm) and we'd love to see you there!
It's a fun way to get to know people, and for us to get to know you.

Hope to see you again soon. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
