Are you looking for a way to connect with the members of your church, synagogue or parish?
A cruise is one way.
A few years ago, I took a group from our church on an Alaska cruise. One of the classes in the church started the ball rolling. I blocked some space on Royal Caribbean‘s Serenade of the Seas to Alaska from Vancouver. We then invited anyone wanting to go to come to a lunch after church. We thought probably 15-20 would show up and 99 people came.
After the presentation, they lined up to book the cruise. It was such a surprise. There were seniors, middle aged, and even some young couples – one brought a 2 year old with Grandma and Grandpa to babysit. Another brought her Auntie from the East Coast. No one had ever been to Alaska and the excitement began to build. One lady brought a suitcase full of games and The Serenade has a beautiful game room which we took over every night. Our church pianist won the karoake contest where we all attended and yelled and clapped for her. We had a private room for a
couple of short get togethers where everyone got to share. A great way to get acquainted. But the biggest thing was that now we know 24 couples in the church that we did not know before. Now when we go down the aisle, we are hugged and loved by all. What a fabulous way to build “community” in our busy lives. Some couples from this group went on to a Med Cruise together. See other posts about that trip. Now they are asking “Where will we go next?” See the world with friends and make lasting memories.
Let me help you make this happen in your church. It has made a big difference in our church community. You need to become family in these difficult days. Cruise & Tour Planners
