Do you ever feel like maybe things are not as they were meant to be? Like maybe you feel you were supposed to be born during another era and life would have been ten times sweeter if you had.
Or maybe you feel that the current state of things are far worse than they ever were in the past, but that is life, so perhaps this is as good as it gets? You’ve lost hope for a better and brighter future… a different life.
We’ve got a pretty good hunch that all of us have felt this way at one point or another. And that’s why we are excited for the launch of a new series called Fractured.
Throughout this fall, we will be talking through the creation of the world and how things became the way they are today. But we won’t stop there. We’re going to ultimately look at how God has provided a solution to all that is broken and how we can pursue this restoration of creation through a relationship with Jesus Christ.
The ultimate purpose of these evenings is to create a fun, friendly environment where singles can connect while engaging in topics relevant to their lives. These evenings include singing, an encouraging message with biblical content, food, and social time for people to connect with one another.
Join us on September 21 for the series kickoff as we find out what it means to be Fractured!

This year, the In-Home Gatherings are going to revolve around continuing the discussion from the Mosaic Series about life and the fractured state of things. We will take an in depth look at how Jesus’ death and resurrection has paid the price for our lives to be renewed through our restored relationship with God. While the perfect rhythm of creation was interrupted by sin, God, not death, has the final say and our hope for new lives and a new world is one that is guaranteed by Jesus.
What is an In-Home Gathering?
In-Home Gatherings are environments where single adults can connect, build authentic friendships, and take the next steps to greater community. The gatherings consist of a medium-sized group of people (usually about 15-30 people) who meet together every Sunday over the course of 3 weeks.
The first 30 minutes revolve around connection, including food, conversation, etc. The next portion of the night involves more structured interaction. Each night’s programming is different, with possible use of a DVD clip, a trivia game, etc. We also break the gatherings into smaller groups of eight to twelve people for more conversation around the topic guided by discussion questions that are provided. This creates the feel of a small group and, hopefully, encourages people to have deeper conversations as well as create greater connections. The gatherings meet on Sunday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm and are led by a team of volunteer leaders.
*If you are separated and/or going through the process of divorce (meaning you are still legally married), we request that you do not sign up for In-Home Gatherings and encourage you to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org for other opportunities to connect.
*In-Home Gatherings are designed as an opportunity for singles to take next steps to greater connection within Chestnut Ridge Church. Unfortunately we do not currently have the capacity to accommodate individuals from other churches who are solely looking to find a large singles group for social interactions. At this time, we can only place singles into our gatherings who are regularly attending CRC or who are looking for a church home. If you regularly attend another church, we ask that you please do not register.
