Our group is made up of couples and single adults, most of whom are empty nesters or never had children. Some of us are newer in our faith, and others are mature believers. We are very supportive of each other, and have a "family" feel. Most folks come early for dinner at 6:30, then the study starts at 7:15. Every member has the opportunity to contribute to the functioning of the group (for example, Bible studies are facilitated by various group members rather than a single leader). We meet year round, with cookouts at some of the summer meetings.
