Having fun, meeting new people, growing in God’s word—that’s what this ministry is all about! I had the privilege of chatting with the leader of The Mix, Chanda Corbett, to get the scoop on how she got involved in this ministry and what it has to offer!
Chanda got involved in The Mix in 2008. “I started attending Mix events in 2008, when a friend of mine was leading ministry at the time,” she said. At that time, Chanda felt the Lord was calling her to do work with the homeless. However, as she became more involved, God had other plans for her-- she became the leader/director of the ministry in 2015!
“Our main mission is to help singles grow in the knowledge of God’s word,” Chanda says.
They host many events, including the 2nd Sunday Social (fellowship over a meal after church), 3rd Saturday fellowship (guests or someone from church speaks the Word), as well as game nights, holiday parties, annual cook-outs, and more!
With all of these events, I had to ask Chanda if she had a favorite! She responded, “I do not have a favorite event that we host. I truly just enjoy the fellowship while serving.”
Her favorite part of serving in this ministry? Hearing about and seeing singles truly enjoying this season of their lives.
“Singles can feel like they need to work on themselves some more, but seeing them enjoy this season and grow in God is always wonderful. Marriage is not the solution to loneliness. This ministry is there for those to embrace their personal acceptance in this season of life.”
For Valentine’s Day tomorrow, they have their Valentine’s Day Singles Brunch from 1:00 – 3:00 p.m. at the Bridgeway Ministry Center (9195-C Red Branch Rd., Columbia, MD). Come on out for a great time of fellowship!
