Are you’re a YoPro (Young Professional) looking to connect with a faith-based group that is welcoming, engaging, and downright fun — with lots of different kinds of activities to choose from that are more social than Sunday school — but still connect deeply to faith and issues related to this particular time of life?
“I’ve enjoyed the friendships I’ve made and the community of reliable friends that the group has created,” says Derek Seeling, a member of the group.
Join the FUMCFW Young Professionals and make connections that could very well last a lifetime! This lively group age 21 – 35 represents a broad range of careers and interests with something for just about everyone. Here are just a few of the activities they have going on now — with more planned as they ramp up for fall:
Worship — join us every Sunday morning at the 9:30 am Gathering (we sit together up front, to the right as you face the stage in Wesley Hall.
Coffee and Conversation — after the service, meet us by the back doors of Wesley Hall and we’ll head over to Buon Giorno Coffee, just across the street from the church, to enjoy coffee and conversation about . . . whatever!
Bible Study — in addition to the insights and contemplation sparked by hanging out and informal conversation with the FUMCFW YoPros, we also have a more structured Bible Study that meets on Thursday nights during the fall and spring to tackle different segments and aspects of scripture and explore how to apply what we learn to our day-to-day lives.
And on the lighter side . . .
Game Night — One Tuesday every month, this group also meets at a Fort Worth restaurant for dinner, conversation and friendly competition through board and card games. All are welcome (even if you don’t worship with us), so even if you’re on the fence, come join us and see how much fun a Tuesday night can be! The next YoPro Game Night is July 23 at the Food Hall at Crockett Row.
Pub Theology — And usually, on a Monday night each month, this group gets together for what we call Pub Theology — which is a group hangout, a happy hour, and a chance to talk about the big stuff with people in your age and stage group. We’re a group of Young Professionals who take a relevant topic and dive in as a group, all while enjoying tasty bevvies. Come on out, invite your friends or co-workers, and have fun!
“As of now we haven’t chosen dates yet for the fall for either Game Night or Pub Theology,” says Lauren Walter, a member of the group. “But please check back with us so you can make sure to get these events on your calendar!”
