What we're about
Lately, I have been disappointed by the lack of fun Meetup events for Born Again Christians who are in our 20s & 30s. Of course reading the Bible and attending church is a given, but what about just having fun with likeminded (well...mostly likeminded, lol) people?! Quite frankly, I don't want to only attend worship services and Bible studies just to hang out with other Born Again Christians, but that seems to be all that is talked about when I Google "Christian groups in NYC."
Do you feel the same way?! This City is too big and exciting for us not to enjoy so much of what it has to offer. As an introvert, I tend to do things on my own because I can't find people who have the time or interest to simply get to know new people and try new things, or old things in a new way.
So, if you are a 20 or 30 something year old Born Again Christian and want to spend one evening a couple of times per month (alternating Friday & Saturday nights!) with fellow believers in NYC, then come out!
This group is still very new and open to activity ideas. I would like to meet in places in Manhattan that are easy enough to get to and close to public transportation. If anyone has other suggestions outside of Manhattan, we can talk about that, too.
What this group will offer:
*Spending time with and getting to know other Born Again Christians 20s-30s years old
*Food outings, attending events throughout NYC, occasional Bible studies.
*Weekend trips?!? (Hmmm)
*A prayer chain
*Inclusion for all Born Again Christians who come
What this group will NOT offer:
*Drunkenness. If you plan to get drunk at any of the events that we have, then this group is not for you.
*Political talk. I don't care who you voted for. This group is for people who consider themselves to be Born Again, not just "conservatives" (though many may argue that they are synonyms).
*Contentious debates. Sure, it's normal to have heated disagreements, but when it becomes hateful arguments, then it crosses the line. Please avoid this.
Disclaimer: These rules (rules? No. Preferences) can be changed at any time, but they probably won't be changed, haha! If you are not a Born Again Christian, you are welcome to come, but please be mindful of the above preferences. I have started this group because of the lack of groups like this upcoming one. It doesn't mean you cannot join. So come! Please!
Looking forward to meeting you all. B.A.C.K.I.N Group
