This is a group for all Nazarenes to connect and socialize and meet friends that may be in your area! It is a place to share info regarding groups that study and observe Torah (Commandments, Feasts, and the details thereof -- howto's, why's and when, where, etc) and encouraging and exhorting one another, in YHWHs Spirit of love. Theological debates should be avoided here. Those discussions can take place in other groups, or on the main discussion board.See More
