House Parties are a chance for you to meet others, build Christian community, play some games, chill, and get some FREE FOOD! These parties take place on Friday evenings from 7:30-10:30pm and are a great way to start the weekend. These parties are intended to be an non-threatening starting point to help young adults in the Decatur area find friendships and community that are encouraging and more importantly Christ-centered.
