Chapter Events are organized by local volunteers and are often supported by DiscoveryBound staff. Local Chapters offer a variety of events for families, teens, 20s-30s and adults or a combination of these groups.
What To expect
Inspiration and friendships are at the heart of local DiscoveryBound Outreach Chapter Events. Activities have included:
- Family day at the beach

Metaphysical Theme: Psalms 139: 7-10
“Whither shall I go from they spirit? or whither shall I flee from thy presence?
If I ascend up into heaven, thou art there: If I make my bed in hell, behold thou art there.
If I take the wings of the morning, and dwell in the uttermost parts of the sea;
Even there shall thy hand lead me, and thy right hand shall hold me.”
