Young Adults Ministry

Our young adults ministry creates space to build friendships as we explore what the Gospel means in our everyday lives.

Childcare Possibly! Let’s talk! We are at capacity right now. We do have childcare with a small suggested donation. Not Currently.
Demographic We welcome all ages and stages of YAMs, but right now our group is mostly younger singles and marrieds without kids. Currently we are mostly young families, but we aren’t limited to that. Anyone is welcome to come check us out.  Presently, we have couples with young children.
Anything else you’d want to share about your group? We take turns sharing our own stories as well as stories from the Bible! We are doing the “This is my story” thing too. Bible stories, personal stories & occasional missionary guests Each couple takes a turn to pick a story from the bible and come prepared to tell & teach the story they chose.
Accepting new members? Yes Yes, although we aren’t able to add more children to our current childcare structure. Yes
