House to House Gatherings are a fun place where single adults of all ages come together for social connection and to develop friendships. These gatherings consist of 30-40 single adults per home who meet five times over a three month cycle alternating Friday nights. These meetups occur in various homes throughout Orange County and include a time of engaging interaction and great conversation along with a biblical element. For more info, check out the FAQ section at the bottom of this page.
After you register, we will place you in a H2H Gathering based on your age and location. You will be contacted before the gathering with the location and additional details.

What happens at the H2H Gatherings?
During each of the five gatherings, we focus on connection. The first part of the night is an unstructured social environment, including snacks, conversation, etc. The next portion of the night involves more structured interaction where everyone is part of smaller groups of six to eight people with conversation focused around the topic at hand which is guided by discussion questions.
What is the age range?
We have four age range categories of singles: 20s/30s, 30s/40s, 40s/50s,
50s/60s. We hope this will give you a chance to meet many people and build new
friendships with those in an approximate stage of life.
Where do the H2H Gatherings meet?
Each H2H Gathering meets in a host home on the H2H Gathering night. We have found that the most comfortable place for singles to meet, connect and have conversations is in a casual home environment. The gatherings last around 1½ hours and are led by a trained host.
