Connect with other Spiritual Seekers
DiscoveryBound Adult activities help you explore more about the practical application of Christian Science while connecting with other spiritual seekers in an inclusive and supportive atmosphere that is comfortable for everyone.
Outreach Adult Chapter Activities
DiscoveryBound Chapters answer the needs of the community they serve. Local Chapters can offer a variety of events that serve adults, parents, children, teens or all these groups combined. Check with your local Chapter for more information. Outreach is also making an effort to organize events for adults (20s & 30s) to come together with their peers in a Christian Science atmosphere to socialize and network.
Outreach national Annual Events
Adults are welcome to attend an adult track at National Annual National Events. The adult tracks will provide an opportunity to be with other Christian Science adults, be in a spiritual atmosphere and learn more about ways to grow and support DiscoveryBound in your community.
National Leadership Council (NLC) Alumni Group
The National Leadership Council Alumni Group is a new initiative that is currently gaining momentum. The plan is to bring alumni together for an annual service trip. For more information contact the NLC Director email or call 888.416.7348 x134.
Adults are also needed to share their skills with the DiscoveryBound program through a variety of volunteer roles. Some of these opportunities include starting an Outreach Chapter, being a Chapter Worker, Chaperone, National Leadership Council (NLC) Mentor, National Leadership Council (NLC) Leader or Compass Guide.
