We must offer a variety of worship and educational experiences that appeal to our members throughout the lifespan. 10

11 We must become attractive to families, however defined, and provide opportunities for families and friendship networks to connect with one another and to be nurtured in their own growth and development. We must pay attention to and expend energy on becoming a caring community in which members feel safe, that they belong, and that the congregation will be attentive and responsive in both celebrating triumphs and providing help in times of crisis. 11
