FROM THE NEW ORGANIZER: At this time, even though the "Organizer" has changed, the original "goal"(description) of this group[see below] is going to stay the same as it was originally intended. As of now, each sub-group meeting(event) will have their own democratic process to determine all decisions that impact the respective sub-group [Ex. Meeting dates, times, locations, etc.].
WHY DID I CHANGE THE NAME ??: Because I feel that this group should NOT just be about current Christians making new Christian Friends. Ya, that's all fine; but instead, I would like you guys to shift the direction of your focus a bit.... Please think about making one new "interesting friend" to every new Christian friend that you make. Jesus came, saw, felt, and concquered, using no sword; but instead LOVE and acceptance of others. While using "the best of the best" to spread his teachings? -- WRONG!! While using some of "the worst of the worst" to spread his teachings - a murderer, a... [ ya know what, I'll just stop there.] ...a murderer is who Jesus accepted as a friend and loved one to spread his teachings. SO, go out and make a "new interesting friend" and then invite them to one of your events :-D
ORIGINAL FOUNDER'S STORY: My brother and I have not been able to connect in any of the churches [in the valley], on a real level. We rarely see anyone our age attending service, which makes it difficult to make lasting relationships/friends. In the churches we have grown up, as well as frequented, there seems to be a large gap after high school -- Making it difficult to stay involved. Our hope is to meet with like-minded people, who may also feel a little "left out". We plan to do fun things (concerts, hanging out, volunteering and then the movies, music, praise/worship, coffee, games, food, etc., 'insert your idea here') while still learning in a healthy environment. This is not "age" specific. So let's make this a cool group in Arizona, feel free to message any questions or ideas. Love, Love, Love... Shelby and Alexander
