Empty Nesters

The Empty Nesters is a group for parents who have seen children off to college and are now transitioning to a new phase in life. Get-togethers are casual and take place on occasional Sundays throughout the year.

Do you find yourself a bit "at odds and ends", with home feeling a bit empty? Is your calendar oddly devoid of obligations- driving, teacher meetings, rehearsals, game schedules and other kid-centered activities? Or perhaps it just feels strange to be disconnected from someone who consumed so much of your time and attention a few short months ago? Please come along! In good company with light food and drink, we share stories and learn from each other about this "new normal". It is a wonderful time.

For more information contact Ginger Woods.

Foyer Groups

Foyer Groups forming for new year.
A Foyer Group is a small group of parishioners who meet informally (3 or 4 times), usually over a meal. The Redeemer is a fairly large community. Many of us openly admit that we really know only a few members of our parish family. Foyer Groups offer the opportunity for newcomers and longtime members alike to get to know one another better. Once people have signed up, a coordinator forms groups of 8-10 people – singles and couples - ideally from different spheres within the parish and at varying stages of life. There are plenty of options for meeting places, but generally Foyer Group members take turns hosting meetings at their homes. A meal usually serves as the format, with the “host” providing the main course (anything from a sit-down dinner to a backyard barbecue) and others bringing appetizers, salad, bread, dessert, and whatever libations the group prefers. While groups meet on different days at various times, a 3-hour time frame is generally respected. To sign up or for more information, please contact Jan Clarke.
