Our goal is to inter-connect the local Russian-speaking community for active off-line socializing. Our group is open to absolutely all Russian-speakers regardless of religion or ethnicity, so long as we have mutual respect. Most events don't carry a religious theme, and are aimed at building social circles within our culture. Events vary between local social nights, city outings, dinners and holidays, group trips, and an occasional themed discussion. Those interested in faith-oriented events are welcome to our "Faith Focused Events" page. Our socials attract a fun and diverse crowd of varying ages and backgrounds, with a core group of regulars and a constant stream of newcomers. Watch the page, or sign up to receive email notifications whenever a new event is posted. The only requirement is enough fluency in the Russian language to carry a conversation. Advanced learners are welcome and exceptions are always made for certain guests of our attendees, such as spouses.
Our group began on MeetUp.com - a large base of local social groups themed by interests, hobbies and professions, hosting local events to its members. Try looking up your hobby on meetup.com next time you're in need of a few activity partners! Our own meetup group is still active: meetup.com/RussianChristiansNYC - but since it requires joining the site in order to participate, we've realized it's time for a simpler alternative - thus the website.
