As many of you know, we at Faith have been trying a new model to reach the single population here in Billings. We moved into the Warehouse and have been meeting twice a month in the hopes of connecting singles and creating community.
However, the new model has not been as effective as we would like to see. We have only seen a small group of committed members and growth is not being seen.
As we have discussed in length about what we could do differently to help our single community thrive, we have landed on a new approach.
1. We will organize 3-4 large scale single events each year. This will include food, games, conversation and more. Our hope is that it gives everyone a chance to meet tons of new people and get a small foundation put in place for friendships and community.
2. We will strongly encourage all singles to be a part of a small group. Small groups are an incredible way to build relationships and community. There is something special about finding a group of people to do life with!
These groups will include gender specific groups, mixed groups and affinity groups. Our hope is that all people at Faith, single or not, will find a group of people to do life with. We all have triumphs and struggles in our lives and when you get to share those, life is more fulfilling.
We are incredibly hopeful that these changes will lead to community, friendships and a life better lived. Please join us in creating lives and communities filled with purpose and passion.
