Do you enjoy deepening relationships through conversation over a meal? On the first and third Wednesdays of each month we gather at 6:08PM to share an informal and intimate meal. There will be enough prepared food available for several persons and participants are invited to bring a dish to share if they are able. The kitchen is open for your use. All are welcome!
Central Wayne Arts Gathering
CWAG celebrates the human experience through the Arts. With a different featured act/event each month, the coffeehouse begins with an open mic (song, poetry, drama, etc. welcomed!). Held on select Saturdays, you are invited to participate as an artist, to socialize, and/or to simply drink-in the creative atmosphere!
The Artist’s Way
This peer-led small group meets monthly and follows Julia Cameron’s book, The Artist's Way: A Spiritual Path to Higher Creativity. Seeking to free an individual’s creativity and/or follow a path towards recovery of it, this free-flowing group invites participation in the Morning Pages, Artist Date, and whichever Tasks you feel comfortable with in that month’s chapter outline. Anyone may join in at any time.
There are a number of artistic pieces located in the public spaces of the building at CBC that serve as an expression of the creative spirit of the community. Some of the spaces are used for rotating exhibitions of visual art. Artists of all kinds (and those who have the gift of arranging and hanging art) are invited to be part of the creative process.
This is a reading/discussion group that meets once each month at the Gryphon Café (across the street from the church). Each month we read a book (usually shorter) that in some way shaped or is shaping the world. We always have a mixture of church and community people, and the discussion is lively and stimulating.
Once each month (except for the coldest months) we gather for a bike ride somewhere in the area. We usually ride on Saturday mornings. There is always a group for serious riders who ride a 10-12 mile route, and a group for relaxed riders. Then we gather for a picnic lunch after the ride.
Small groups are a cluster of persons who meet together on a regular basis for friendship/support and/or focus/study on a particular topic. Some of our groups have been in existence for many years and some of these groups meet for only a limited time. New groups can be formed at any time. If you are interested in joining a group or starting a new one, let us know!
An active, and incredible cohort of sixth to twelfth graders, the youth group gathers on a monthly basis in family homes. Activities typically include an annual retreat, CBC Talent Show, collection of Christmas gifts for Deborah’s House, fun trips, and fund-raisers for our agreed upon missions.
For college-age (ish) people! A safe environment foryoung adults to share values, beliefs and passionswhile building relationships and empowering oneanother to learn what it means to live our faiths as followers of Jesus in the world today.
Gad-Abouts (Young Adults)
For those who are 18+ to 35ish (we’re flexible!), the Young Adults tend to be a highly energized group with very full lives. As a result they gather together occasionally to socialize, share passions, explore faith. The Young Adults also often join in the activities of the Betweeners.
Betweeners (Middle-Aged Adults)
Find yourself in that wide range somewhere in between young adulthood and retirement? That’s who the Betweeners are! A group of individuals and families crossing the spectrum of diversity, its activities include the likes of annual camping trips, bowling, swim parties, museums and baseball games! There’s always something planned and always room for you!
Senior Support Corps: Age is Just a Number
SSC is a lively group of CBC seniors (retired and 55+) who meet on the third Thursday of each month to share with one another, engage in discussion about a featured program item, plan service projects, and then they share a meal together. Started as a mission group, our seniors possess a wealth of wisdom and experience and are sometimes known as the most radical group in all of CBC!
