(...) Join us every Saturday from 1:00PM - 10:00PM at the South Bay LGBTQ Center. Pathfinder Society is a worldwide fantasy roleplaying campaign that puts YOU in the role of an agent of the Pathfinder Society, a legendary league of explorers, archaeologists, and adventurers dedicated to discovering and chronicling the greatest mysteries and wonders of an ancient world beset by magic and evil. In Pathfinder Society Organized Play, you play a member of the Pathfinder Society, seeking fortune and glory all over the face of Golarion. At the same time, your character works for one of the competing factions, all with their own motivations and secret agendas. Play is organized into Seasons, throughout which the actions and achievements of you and your fellow Pathfinders create an ongoing storyline. Each season consists of at least 28 Pathfinder Society scenarios (short, 4-hour adventures) set in a variety of exotic locations across Golarion. For more information, contact Raymond at [masked] Join the Pathfinder Society and create your character now! http://paizo.com/pathfindersociety

(PLEASE SEE CHURCH WEBSITE FOR HOURS) Q Faith Community

First Christian Church

VISIT CHURCH WEBSITE FOR HOURS: https://us4.campaign-archive.com/?u=ba9e6c3aa9f1c5567a1d2dae9&id=4e6a277e09 • Join us every Sunday from 2:00PM - 3:00PM at the First Christian Church of Torrance located at 2930 El Dorado Street Torrance, California 90503. Q Faith Community welcomes you to a discussion of spiritually and religion. Participants are welcome to bring snacks to share. Q Faith Community started as a response to the overt (and subtle) prejudice, judgment & exclusion found within Christianity toward our LGBTQ+ community. Q is a community of people who share their experience, strength and hope with each other as they try to follow the teachings of Jesus together and solve their common problem with ego, temptation or the false self. Q is open to anyone that has spiritual questions, seeking a place to be real and find deeper meaning in their life. Most people eventually discover that there has to be more to life than working to get stuff, and fulfilling their own desires, but sadly when they go searching typical church doesn't seem like any better of an option. At Q Faith Community we seek to find something far Greater than just a place to gather on Sundays. We attempt, and stumble, toward our true Source, The Way & The Life, and our truest selves. We also hope to help others by investing our gifts and care, as we try to make our worlds around us better by joining this movement to challenge the Oppression and Judgement that keep many from seeking this path. We dream big, and although the journey is bumpy, we seem to have a lot of fun along the way.
