Winter/Spring Activities Resume

Every Other Wednesday, 6:30-8:00 pm
(see meeting schedule below)
(meet for dinner in Stephenson Hall at 6:00 pm)

Beyond Club is a ministry of Columbia Baptist Church filling an important need. Our group of about 25 adults with special needs meets at Columbia every other Wednesday from September through June.

Our members are quite active! Many of them went to school together in Arlington or Fairfax County, and many participate in Special Olympics sports together. Most live at home with their parents or have been integrated into group homes.

The group gathers for dinner at 6:00 pm in the church's fellowship hall (Stephenson Hall). We then go to the "club room" for our meeting. The format includes an "ice breaker", a lesson, sometimes a craft, and often music and singing. We close at 8:00 pm.

In addition to the meetings, we offer several special events for the members; Valentine's dinner dance, "boys night out" (laser tag/pizza, etc), "girl's night out", "Night at the Movies" and other events.

We welcome new volunteers!

Beyond Club has doubled its membership in four short years, our volunteer numbers have not kept pace, so there is a very real need for new volunteers to help. Love and listening are the qualifications needed. You will be blessed!
