Every Tuesday night twenties and thirties gather in an unlikely setting for meeting singles. They meet at Park Cities Presbyterian Church (PCPC) on Oak Lawn Avenue, to socialize with singles and hear Aaron Cave teach from the Bible. Then, they all go out to a bar – lately it’s been Gingerman – to have a beer, meet new people and catch up on the latest.
You may think church is the worst place to meet singles. Or you may think it’s the best. Regardless of your opinion, I have constanly heard this from singles lately -”I’m tired of meeting people in a bar.” And it’s true that if you’re looking for a long term relationship, bars are probably not the most ideal setting for meeting your next girlfriend or boyfriend.
What’s cool about the church setting on Tuesday nights is this: it’s laid back, it’s not in-your-face, people are friendly and you get to hear a good talk, no matter what you believe. For some people, the bar is the biggest draw and, I’ll admit, it’s really fun. But I believe it’s the combination of substance a la “bible study” and fun at the bar that makes for the perfect environment to meet singles.
Where does all this deep yet lively group gather every week? We’re at PCPC every Tuesday at 7 PM across from the main church building (4124 Oak Lawn Ave, between Chase Bank and Equinox gym). Anyone’s welcome – hope to see you there.
