F.O.C.A.S. (Fellowship of Christian Adult Singles)
Our goal is to please God by building relationships with others through Christ by creating a safe atmosphere where single adults will be accepted and encouraged to grow not only their personal relationship with Jesus Christ, but with others through activities that are not only fun and exciting but also will carry purpose through our core foundations. All singles are welcome to join this group for fun and fellowship. Our desire would be to glorify God by encouraging and meeting the needs of the single, adult Christian. Our goal is to encourage and help one another and purposefully maximize all areas of our lives for Christ as a single adult.
Accepting everyone without judgment
Romans 15:7 accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.
Helping everyone understand their Ephesians 4 gift to enable them to fulfill their calling
Ephesians 4:7 (NIV) But to each one of us grace has been given as Christ apportioned it.
Ephesians 4:11-12 (NIV) So Christ himself gave the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, the pastors and teachers, to equip his people for works of
service, so that the body of Christ may be built up.
Discover and enable individual and group potential
Ephesians 3:20 (ESV) Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us
Provide opportunities for group recreation and
Ephesians 2:18-22 (NIV) For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit. Consequently, you are no longer foreigners and strangers, but fellow citizens with God’s people and also members of his household, built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, with Christ Jesus himself as the chief cornerstone. In him the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in him you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by his Spirit.
Provide opportunities to serve in the community
James 2:14-17 (ESV) What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good is that? So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
