We have many upcoming and on-going events coming up! Because we are using Zoom and other platforms, be sure you are set up to actively participate.
An ongoing event is Tick Tock Greeting - which is like Speed Dating with a righteous twist:) Tick Tock Greeting involves a large group of singles introducing themselves to one another with the aim of getting acquainted for possible courtship. One set - usually Sisters - stay seated on one side, while the Brothers move down the line until everyone has met. They can come up with their own questions or questions will be provided.
The Youth will continue to organize! Please continue to watch this site for upcoming events and if you would like to volunteer, please contact us!
Be sure to get your own Zoom account by downloading and installing Zoom on your computer or cellphone for future events. Go to www.zoom.us. Be sure to test it out with someone to make sure your audio and visual are in good working condition. If you don’t have audio or a camera on your computer, you should be able to purchase one at Best Buy or a store that sells electronics for a minimal cost. When you buy it, always test it to make sure it’s properly installed.

The Virtual Tick Tock Greeting will allow you to meet many Brothers and Sisters. It's not open for those who are currently in courtship. Registration fee is usually $5.
We are also working on private break-out rooms for those who wish to be introduced and want to get better acquainted prior to, or during courtship.
We recommend business/casual.
No white Ts, muscle shirts, or tight fitting clothing (men or women).
Headpiece, scarf, tam, or hats are OK
Be Modest, Be Comfortable, be Stylish!
Be aware of your environment and make sure you are in a quiet location where you can have privacy. You will want your Brothers and Sisters to get the most positive impression of you; so be sure that your presentation reflects favorably on you. For example, it would not be a good idea for participants to see an unmade bed in the background or dishes all over the kitchen.
If you have to make a run while participating in a webinar, be sure to turn your video off and mute the sound. When you test out Zoom, make sure your lighting is right.
