Ottawa Christians Social welcomes you to the first Christian Social Meet-Up in the National Capital Region!

Posted on message board August 12, 2014, by Group Organizer, Mary Ellen:

Dear Ottawa Christian Social members and friends,

I have a new phase coming up in my life – where I move back to Beautiful BC (where I grew up) to a new, challenging job and to be close to a lot of my family, including my loving, lovable parents. I leave sometime early in the week of September 7.
The next payment for this group ($72 twice a year) is September 19, and since I won’t be here anymore, I am going to cancel the payment which means the group disappears, unless….

I wonder if someone else (or a few someone else’s) would like to keep this group going (and find a way to pay for it)? It would be a shame for it to disappear – so many of us have enjoyed it! I have not asked for money to pay for the site myself, but many MeetUp group leaders do ask for a small donation from everyone - which is an option to offset the cost.

Please message me if you will do this.

It has been a pleasure getting to know those of you who have come out to the events – some of you I now call my friends. I may or may not see you before I go, so I wish you God's amazing blessings now!Love in Christ, Mary Ellen

...

Are you new to the area (Ottawa/Gatineau) or have many of your friends moved away? Have you come to realize (for the first time or again) that Jesus is your all in all and have you had to make some changes in how you live out your social life and with whom you are friends? Are you interested in meeting other Christians to enjoy the social, culinary, outdoor and cultural activities that Ottawa has to offer?

Christians (people who have come to realize that Christ is their only Saviour) have fun and enjoy their world and community just as much as anyone – and I think that our Lord wants this of us. We have spare time to be filled and we can’t spend it all in bible study, prayer and small groups :) . We spend some of it enjoying life and the gifts God put in our environment – with joy.

If you would like to enjoy Ottawa with Christian friends, people whom you know will understand you at an elemental level right from the start – then this group is for you! If you have the knowledge of Jesus as Saviour and are growing closer to Him, no matter where you are on the journey – if you are on it, you are welcome.

Who are you?:

You a new, ‘old’ or recommitted Christian.

All are welcome (truly), but you are likely to be ‘older’ (30-something-50’s) singles. This said for a few reasons from observation, none of which are meant to exclude:

  • You don’t have a spouse to spend time with.
  • ‘Older’ because as we get older, past friendships don’t fulfill, people move away, etc.
  • ‘Older’ because you are that much farther removed from school or youth groups, etc and are more likely to have moved here away from your hometown friends (or vice versa).
  • You may or may not have kids – though maybe not (or only part-time), because kids already help connect people to a community of parents through school, sports, church groups, etc.

Possible activities:

  • Movie and dinner night (out, or in once we get to know each other)
  • Trying unique, ethnic restaurants (Ottawa is full of them!)
  • Hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, etc
  • NAC events
  • Festivals
  • Concerts
  • Museums and galleries
  • Karaoke
  • Beach BBQs (can't wait!)
  • Potlucks and game night (typical!)
  • Holiday dinners for those with no family plans

If you have ideas for what we could do – let me know and I will do my best to post them. If you can help host an activity (i.e. do any preparation like call for reservations and be there to welcome people) – that would be amazing and appreciated!

I hope you join me in saying: I look forward to meeting you! God bless.

Small disclaimer #1: Some of the events posted may be at venues that alcohol is offered or dancing occurs. If you are sensitive to these things, then just skip those events and do other ones – it is up to you to choose what to do or not do.

Small disclaimer #2: I reserve the right to cancel events if they do not have sufficient interest/particpants and will try to give you as much notice as possible should this occur.
