What is “The Dock”?

The Dock is a ministry at The Harbor for adults who are not married.

Picture a dock. A dock exists within a harbor as the place ships tie up to, to load and unload, to give and receive. It is a physical place of connecting, tethering, and securing.

Just as a dock exists within a harbor, The Dock exists within The Harbor as a place where unmarried men and women can gather and connect with one another, be encouraged, have fun, and pursue Christ! Some of our gatherings will include a wide range of ages. Some will be divided by age with Dock Prime for those aged 40 and wiser and Dock Young Adults for those in their 20s and 30s.

God has great purpose for us as unmarried men and women. He has a great calling on our lives! We desire to realize this great calling and become an integral part of His church at The Harbor.

Events such as concerts in the park, dinner and a movie, baseball games, and many more are ways we can gather and have fun together. Night at the Dock, with teaching specific to us as unmarried men and women, can help us grow in faith. Serving others together gives joy and helps us look outside of ourselves.

Still wondering why such a ministry is needed?

Today, healthy venues for men and women to connect and feel a sense of belonging are hard to come by for the unmarried man or woman. The world says we are ‘less-than’ if we are not with someone. But God says our value and identity are rooted in “whose we are” (Jesus), not who we are with. In the Church, surrounded by families, unmarried men and women may feel out of place. Yet, we have the same needs and calling as those with spouses and families – to connect, belong, and pour lives out for Jesus.

In the Bay Area, approximately 45% of adults are not married. Yet, within most churches, less than 20% of the adults are unmarried. We are missing men and women, and we desire to provide an avenue for these men and women to connect with our church and to know and love Jesus Christ!

Fall study & Gatherings

Sundays | starting October 4 | 6:00 - 8:00 PM | in person and via zoom
The Dock is getting together on Sunday evenings this fall! We'll be studying Peter Scazzero's "Emotionally Healthy Spirituality."

The Living God desires freedom for us, including freedom to face tough emotions, just as Jesus did. This will be a great season of growth for us!

We'll be meeting both on Zoom and in person (in person will follow church protocol of checking temperatures upon arrival and wearing a mask until seated). The study is free, and we hope you'll join us, even if you can't make it to every session. Check out our schedule below!
Note: Don't be intimidated by the "Prayer Gatherings" - you are invited! If you decide to come, you will not be put on the spot and will not have to pray aloud unless you choose to! There will a break between our teaching and fellowship time and the prayer gathering, if you need to leave at 7:00 before we gather to pray at 7:15.

If you desire to participate in person on the regular study days (10/4, 10/11, 11/8, or 11/15), please email Justin.Baldwin@theharbor.life, and he will send you the address where we are meeting. If you desire to participate via Zoom, no RSVP is necessary.
