FOCAS Alumni

Although FOCAS makes no attempt to match people, over the years many singles found their spouses among other FOCAS people.  Other FOCAS people found spouses elsewhere.  In any event, since FOCAS is a ministry particular to singles, people who get married are no longer to be involved with FOCAS.  We call such people "Alumni".  Other names given are "Blurries" (out of FOCAS) or "the excommunicated". 

We do on occasion, have events in which we invite alumni back for particular FOCAS events, so we can see some old friends again. 

Scheduled FOCAS alumni events:

 

December 16 (Saturday) - MONTHLY FELLOWSHIP DINNER/CHRISTMAS PARTY, 5:00 PM at Weavers Mennonite Church (From I-81, take Exit 245 [Port Republic Road] west to Rt. 42 north [High Street] to U.S. 33 west [Market Street]; go not quite 3 miles, gray stone church on left just past WSVA.  We will meet in the Shady Oaks fellowship building to the left of the church.).  Don’t miss the fun of our Christmas Party!  We will begin with a covered dish dinner, then share in a Christmas Devotion and singing Christmas carols.  We will conclude with our gift exchange.  For the gift exchange, bring a small wrapped gift that costs at least $10, suitable for men or women.  Alumni are invited.  For dinner, if your last name begins with G-N bring a main dish, O-Z bring a salad or vegetable dish, and A-F bring a Christmas dessert to share.  FOCAS will provide the beverages, plates, and utensils.  Remember to bring canned foods for the Food Pantry—see top note on first page.  We suggest a $2 donation per person to cover expenses.  Adults only.  Contact person: Peggy at 433-1459. 

 

 

 

January 6 (Saturday) -- MONTHLY FELLOWSHIP DINNER/FUNDRAISER, 6:00 PM at Bridgewater Baptist Church (from I-81, take Exit 245 [Port Republic Road] and go west 1.0 mile to VA 42 [S. High Street], turn left and go 4.8 miles, and turn right—2nd driveway past a pond, just before the church sign.  Enter into basement in back.).  This evening is a fundraiser event with a baked potato bar dinner, suggested donation $5.00.  FOCAS will supply the baked potatoes, toppings, and beverages.  If your last name begins with A-M bring a dessert (broccoli, butter, sour cream, and shredded cheese will be provided), N-Z bring a salad or vegetable dish to share.  Dinner will be followed by a fund raiser (we will not be having a white elephant sale)—by offering meals or services to pay for.  Proceeds will go to the FOCAS treasury.  Bring money for donation and meals or services sign up.  This is an alumni event.  Adults only.  Contact person: David at 433-1800.
