Affinity Group Survey
The TBI Board and Membership Committee are rolling out new affinity groups in response to requests from members. Affinity groups bring together congregants with similar interests who might otherwise not have an opportunity to meet. It is a chance for members to socialize around an activity or hobby–to connect and make our congregation feel more intimate. We’ll be setting up groups at the beginning of 2020 based on interest. Please complete the quick online survey to let us know what you’re interested in.

A Great Ride
Sunday, November 17, 4:00pm
A Great Ride is a 30-minute documentary about lesbians aging with dynamism and zest for life. When they were young they forged a social movement to come out as true to themselves. Now they face the challenge of growing old. Their response? Deep friendships, determination, engagement, and quirky, death-defying humor. Pioneers once again, they are courageous role models for aging, which they do with an independent and irreverent spirit and a heartening delight in living. Meet the filmmaker, Deborah Craig (Sally Sheklow’s cousin-in-law), who will take questions and facilitate discussion following.
