Mid 20s to Mid 40s
Have one or more of the following happened to you?
- you took your child to the wrong birthday party
- you thought your big presentation for work was due next week, but oh wait, it is due tomorrow!
- you have aging parents that need your help and you have young children
- you want to volunteer more at church, but seemed to have lost touch with other members
- you fill uninformed and crave more conversation about the state of the world rather than relying on google and social media
- you feel guilty for not attending the church function, but you just worked 60 hours
- You are at a career crossroad, but not sure how to balance
The list can go on and on, but if this is your life...come join "The Village".!
As we work to schedule meaningful and manageable events, we will focus on:
- Service (Planning a volunteer/service project with one of our already planned ministries.)
- Social (With and W/O children)
- Wellness (Physical and Financial)
- Speakers/ Burning Topic discussion (Identifying key speakers and or topics of interest.)
