We are thrilled to have each and every one of you join us for our upcoming event - Celebrating Singleness!
"Celebrating Singleness" - what a weird event title.
Does it imply that being single is superior?
Not at all!
February is that month where we face those cringe-worthy questions and unsolicited advice during CNY, and the struggle is real when Valentine's Day hits – cue the FOMO (i.e., Fear Of Missing Out).
It's easy to fall into this phase of self-pity, questioning God like, "Where's my person?" or "Am I just meant to be single?"
Today's event is a reminder that we're not alone in this phase. It's like meeting a bunch of people who go, "Hey, I feel the same way."
Let's be real... breaking the ice with new faces can be awkward.
I mean, do I just stroll up and say "hi"?
What if I'm itching to play something, but everyone's in that shy mode?
To kick things off and smash through the awkwardness, we're throwing in ice-breakers and a team challenge.🏓⚽🎯
(3pm - 3.15pm)
Get your name stickers from Grace :)
(3.15pm - 3.30pm)
Ice Breaker - Bingo!
Participants mingle and interact with others to discover who matches the criteria on their Bingo card.
When they find someone who fits a description, write the person's name down on the corresponding square on their Bingo card.
The game continues until someone achieves a Bingo (a complete row, column, or diagonal).
(3.30pm - 4pm)
Check your name tag to determine if you belong to Team 1 or Team 2.
Within your team, designate representatives for Round 1 as follows:
Table Soccer: Choose 2 team members
Table Tennis: Select 2 team members
Darts: Assign 3 team members
Continuing within your team, designate representatives for Round 2:
Table Soccer: Pick 2 team members
Table Tennis: Choose 2 team members
Darts: Assign 3 team members (Note: It's okay to repeat some members, but ensure that every team member plays at least 1 game by the end of Round 2.)
Here's how the scoring works for each game:
The first team to score 3 goals will earn 10 points.
The first team to accumulate 3 points will receive 10 points. A point is scored by striking the ball in a way that the opponent fails to make contact. However, if the ball hits the net and doesn't bounce over into the opponent's half, or if it goes out of bounds without touching the table, the opponent gets a point.
Each team's dart closest to the bullseye will earn the team 10 points. In case of a tie, two members from each team will throw again, and the closest to the bullseye in the second round wins.
(4pm - 4.30pm)
I had a chat with my pastor, asking him, "What's one thing that singles need for the month of February?"
He responded, "To feel heard and understood."
With that in our hearts, we weaved in a short session for us to open up about the things that weigh on us.
So, grab a drink and a snack, and our facilitators will be right there with you in this brief 30-minute sharing session :)
