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.

Upcoming Adult Events
CANCELED Jetty Park All-Ages Kayaking/Camping Weekend in Cape Canaveral
As of today, March 18, Adventure Unlimited (including DiscoveryBound) is stopping all work travel and in-person events until April 1st. At that time we will determine if additional steps need to be taken for the month of April. This means that our DB Annual Jetty Park weekend is canceled. I got a call from Jetty Park campground today (March 18th) and they are closing starting tomorrow at noon until further notice. We have been working with the following citation from II Timothy, “For God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind.”
Here is a possible alternative activity for our Jetty Park Weekend canceled event:
Challenge for you: Bring Jetty Park Home! Send us a photo or short video of a beach or camping activity (ie. S’mores, tenting in your backyard) with your family and/or small group of friends to share on DiscoveryBound social media. Text to Lori Selby at 781-956-9035.
Please know that we are still planning and registering for future inspiring and fun events to take place this year. The DiscoveryBound Outreach team will assess the current situation on a regular basis.
Check out our upcoming weekend events:
I want to thank our DiscoveryBound Florida Groups (DB Tampa, DB Southeast FL, DB Central Florida, DB Jacksonville) for their support of this event! Help us spread the word to those that were interested in attending!
Please feel free to reach out to me with further questions. We certainly appreciate your flexibility during this time. We look forward to seeing you at Jetty Park next year!
“A calm, Christian state of mind is a better preventative of contagion than a drug, or than any other possible sanative method; and the “perfect Love” that “casteth out fear” is a sure defense.” (Miscellaneous Writings p. 229:24)
With Love, Lori Selby
