Mid-Missouri Sing Christ Adv Grp Direction Meeting (3)

Come and discuss thoughts and feelings about the group. Share what you wish we were doing or what we shouldn't be doing.

My wish list:

We would be a little more active.

More Christian men would find the group worth their time and efforts.

We would have a little more participation/events from Columbia.

God and fellowship would always be at the forefront.

I have been thinking about taking "Singles" out of our name.  I want in-put on that Sunday.

WE will start ordering pizza around 5:15 pm.

Hope to see you all there.

Pizza Haus is located west of and off of Hwy 63 on Hwy Y in Ashland inbetween Jeff and Columbia

PS:  hasn't it been fun so far?

    Rick, I thought it was already ok for members to have guests, even if they are already married. It has always been ok with me for others to bring friends to events. Concerning the outdoor activities, the more the merrier. Maybe you can let the couples know it is ok to tell their single friends about joining in those types of events too. It could be a good way to grow membership and participation.

    I’m OK with it as long as there are other singles there, as well. I’ve been a 5th wheel (or 7th wheel, 9th wheel, etc.), and it is sometimes uncomfortable. For example, being on a weekend camping trip where I’m the only single person does not appeal to me. A large group hiking or biking would be fine with couples mixed in.

    Please give me some honest feedback. I don't think we are going to change our name, and we definitely are not going to take "singles" out of the title. My question is how do you guys feel about Julaine and I inviting our married couples to some events like hikes, bike rides etc. I don't see asking them to dinner and movie etc, but the outdoor stuff seems inviting. Let me know. Your thoughts count.

    I want to thank everybody for their honest frank thoughts and comments. We are a great group that will get even better. Pray that we keep our eye on God's will and the needs of our single community with a few married folks mixed in.

    Taking Singles out of the name would cause a lot of single people to pass the group over. Single and Christian are the words that made me want to be part of the group in the first place too. I see no problem allowing couples that met within the group to remain as members. Though, in my opinion if it becomes a group open to all married and singles, the singles usually get left behind. It also seems single men as well as women would be less likely to join without Single in the title.

    March 10, 2014

    • D. J.

      o Yes....the Singles do not have much to do here in Mid Missouri...I feel the word Singles needs to continue to be part of the name. And I believe Rick, the main reason you started this group was for the point the your single friends are making here....for you were once that single person and you did a great service for yourself and all of us singles by starting a singles meetup group!! Thank You so much for doing this!

      March 14, 2014

    • Rick L

      I am pretty sure we won't be taking the "Single" out of the singles group. I have some concern that some people not familiar with the group believe it's main purpose is for hooking up, but maybe that is their problem.

      March 14, 2014

  • Karl

    The word "Singles" in the title makes the group sound more welcoming to me and a place where I can do things and be included. I think the group is a success. We are offered at least 2 or 3 gatherings or activities a month, and depending on what I can attend, it gives a warm place to be with fellow Christians! Of course there is always room for improvement in anything, but I think the group Rick started here is positive and good.

    As I said in the presentation I would like to see more
    Christian men get involved. Pray for the group and the men in it. Many men are involved in ministry; busy at their church. It could be that some men do not see our group and it's events as godly enough etc. I know I am at my best when I am in fellowship with a few good men. I see relationships being formed with both men and women. I believe you women have been very supportive of each other. I enjoy friendships of both sexes, but I still hope and pray for more men leadership. Specifically, being an organizer and putting events out there. "As iron sharpens iron". What you can do: Ask men in your life if they considered the importance of fellowship and if they would have the talents, heart and desire to contribute to our cause. If you are an organizer, pray that God would use your event to meet the spiritual or social needs of another.
    Thanks

    Would anyone from the Columbia area want to carpool?

      Sure can...sounds like a plan

    I’m not sure that I can make the meeting, so here is a little input:

    I’d like to comment on your point about taking “Singles” out of the name. As a transplant to Mid-MO, I’ve found it really hard to fit in - especially as a single person. I think Columbia might be different, but being single in Fulton is a lonely life. I probably would not have checked out this group had it not had “Single” attached to the title. I am by no means opposed to people being in the group who are not single, but I’m just pointing out that the title is what drew me into checking out the group.

    Also, I’d like to suggest going to a Cardinal game as an activity for the spring or summer. I went on a Fulton Parks and Rec trip last year and really enjoyed it. We took a chartered bus from Fulton and they dropped us off right at the gate and picked us up. It was nice not to have to worry about parking and city driving. This might be an activity that would attract more men into the group.
