Friday Night Social
Rock Church is launching a new program for adults in our community on the autism spectrum called Friday Night Social (FNS). The purpose of the program is to address social isolation commonly found among adults on the spectrum once they finish attending school. The Mission House will provide a free meeting place on Friday evening from 7:00 p.m.-9:00 p.m. The participants will determine the activities planned, varying from simple game nights, featuring cards and puzzles to fixing s’mores over a bonfire outside. Occasionally, off-site activities such as mini golf, bowling, or viewing a current movie may also be enjoyed. New members, Terry Doughty and her son, Robert, will be the program coordinators, having already established a similar social group at their last church in Pittsburgh. The evenings at the Mission House will offer food, fun, and fellowship to high functioning adults on the spectrum who are in their 20’s, 30’s, and 40’s beginning October 1. Programs like FNS have a big impact on those involved while requiring little effort from church members. It is a blessing to be able to offer a group of individuals a safe and relaxed environment to socialize; filling a need in the community. Please encourage those you know of who may be interested to give Friday Night Social a try. You can check out our Facebook page at Facebook.com/Friday-Night-Social-FNS. For more information, contact Terry Doughty at email@example.com or call 864-677-1594.
