Gatherings

WHAT ARE SINGLES GATHERINGS?

Singles Gatherings are environments where single adults come to build authentic friendships and get connected. Singles Gatherings consist of about 30-40 people who meet on Sunday nights at 6:30 p.m. for six consecutive weeks. During a Singles Gathering, connection is the focus.

The first 30 minutes revolve around connection and include light snacks and conversation. The next portion of the night involves more structured interaction. Each night’s programming is different, with possible use of a DVD clip, trivia game, service opportunity, etc. We also break the Gatherings into smaller groups of six to eight people for more conversation around the topic at hand guided by discussion questions. This creates the feel of a small group and, hopefully, encourages people to have deeper conversations as well as create stronger connections.

WHEN AND WHERE DO THEY HAPPEN?

Singles Gatherings take place in the spring and fall. During each cycle, Gatherings meet for six consecutive weeks in homes around the Atlanta area. Many of the Gatherings also plan optional social events throughout the cycle. The Gatherings meet on Sunday evenings for about two hours and are led by a team of volunteers.
