We believe one of the best ways to get to know others and experience God is by following our passions. So, we have Affinity Groups. These groups center on a common interest (ie, reading, art, backpacking, etc.) while integrating conversations about spiritual issues. These groups are open to anyone. We encourage you to reach out to whatever group interests you, or if you’d like to start a group of your own, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.

WELL-SEASONED SUPPER CLUB
For those of you who are new to the idea, this is simply a group of fifty-somethings plus/”empty-nesters” who want to engage in community with other individuals in that same age bracket/life stage. We’re a diverse group … some of us are married and some are single; some have grown children who’ve left home; some still have a few kiddos in the nest; and some do not have children at all. No matter what your situation, if you fall into the fifty-something plus crowd or are working through the challenges of an “empty nest”, we’d love to have you join us. Typically, we will meet for a potluck dinner at one of our group member’s homes on the 2nd Saturday of every other month. Remaining scheduled dates for 2016 are May 14, July 9, September 10, and November 12.
Warehouse has a growing domestic and international adoption community. This group is for those who have adopted, or are interested in connecting with others in community who have a passion for adoption. We currently meet three (3) times a year and may offer a class in the future.
