Are there any church groups for young adults (21-29) in the Boston area?

Question by Leslie: Are there any church groups for young adults (21-29) in the Boston area?
I’m looking for a church group (catholic) for young adults that focuses on bible study, discussing real world issues, as well as some social activities. I am not looking for a church dating group (I’ve come across several of those) and I’m not looking for some sort of meditation group. I’ve tried MeetUp and other social networking sites, but many of the groups turn out to be dating groups or meditation groups. Any suggestions.

You can go to this site: http://churchangel.com/welcome.htm Click on your state, your city, and scroll down to the denomination you like. It’ll list all the churches in the area. It’d probably be best to call up and ask them about their young adult groups.

Is it hard to meet women in church groups?

Question by Phil: Is it hard to meet women in church groups?
I have been looking for a girlfriend for a while and people have told me to join a church group i have. I find it really hard to meet people in the group it is so cliquey and hard to get the people to hang out with you other than being at church. I’m starting to find that dating a church girl might be kind of complicated for a starter like myself. What are some other ways to meet women? Any ideas? Has this happened to anyone before?

Groups Need Leaders – ep.1: “the brochure”

Episode 1 of the “Groups Need Leaders” videos I produced for recruiting small group leaders at the Project. (the-project.ca) PRODUCTION NOTES: In response to some of the questions I get on a regular basis, I thought I would shed a little light on what goes into the creation of these videos… • I write up a quick treatment with only a basic concept, a few key lines and a rough sketch of the key roles. • The actors are recruited during the week and show up to the shoot having no idea what we are shooting. I cast the various parts based on who shows up and tweak the roles and lines accordingly. • We then shoot (guerrilla style) in less than 2 hours with a Sony HVR-Z5U, a boom mic and available light. Unless there are outdoor shots that require daylight, we shoot each scene (more or less) in order as it will appear in the final video. We also shoot plenty of extra material to fill gaps as need. This helps ensure that I have everything I need when editing as there are no opportunities for call backs. • I do a quick first cut right away (1-2 hours) to get the shots trimmed and in order. The next day I do a final cut (3-4 hours) tightening up the shots, color correcting, adding sound effects and titles. If you have any other questions, feel free to contact me.

Making Small Groups Work: What Every Small Group Leader Needs to Know

Making Small Groups Work: What Every Small Group Leader Needs to Know

Lead small groups through astounding growth with principles from the best-selling books How People Grow and Boundaries.No matter what need brings a group of people together—from marriage enrichment to divorce recovery, from grief recovery to spiritual formation—members are part of a small group because they want to grow. This book by psychologists Henry Cloud and John Townsend provides small-group leaders with valuable guidance and information on how they can help their groups to grow spiritually, emotionally, and relationally. With insights from their best-selling book How People Grow, Cloud and Townsend show how God’s plan for growth is made up of three key elements: grace plus truth plus time. When groups embrace those elements, they find God’s grace and forgiveness and learn how to handle their imperfections without shame as they model God’s love and support to one another.In addition to describing what makes small groups work, Leading Small Groups That Help People Grow explains the roles and responsibilities of both leaders and group members. Employing tenets from the book How People Grow, this book equips leaders to understand the ins and outs of how to promote growth, and using principles from their best-selling book Boundaries, they show how to identify and find solutions for common problems such as boredom, noncompliance, passivity, aggression, narcissism, spiritualization, over-neediness, over-giving, and nonstop talking.
