YA exists to connect 18-28 year olds to Christ and His bride, the Church. We long to be a community of believers who are knit together in love, rooted in truth and connected to other generations of believers. Our hope is that we might call young adults to know God and walk with Him for a lifetime. We acknowledge God as both present and personal, trusting His immutable Word to speak to the depths of our hearts and the day-to-day issues of life, such as dating, college life, work, and marriage. We look to Him to answer questions of emptiness and fulfillment, joy and pain, tragedy and miracles.
See the way Christian community had a huge impact on one life.
Weekly Gathering • Thursdays at 8pm
We want people to know their stories – to know and articulate the work that Jesus has done in their life. We also want people to share their story with others – your personal testimony is the most effective witnessing tool that you have. Acts 4:20 “As for us, we cannot help speaking about what we have seen and heard.”
Service and outreach are parts of discipleship and the mission of Missional Communities – to go and reach the least and the lost for Christ. Isaiah 58:1-5 and Matthew 28:18-20. We want to be challenged to see where we can apply are passions in everyday life to bringing the Gospel out of the church walls into our community as a whole.
Biblical wisdom is part of discipleship and also the inerrant Word of God – we want people to be actively engaging scripture both inside and outside of our Missional Communities.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 “All scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.” and Psalm 1:1-3 “Blessed is the one who does not walk in step with the wicked or stand in the way that sinners take or sit in the company of mockers, but whose delight is in the law of the Lord, and who meditates on his law day and night. That person is like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither – whatever they do prospers.”
Prayer is part of discipleship and our chance to converse with God. We want people to be actively communicating with God and begging him to move in and through their lives.
Psalm 14:1-5 “The fool says in his heart, ‘There is no God.’ They are corrupt, their deeds are vile; there is no one who does good. The Lord looks down from heaven on all mankind to see if there are any who understand, any who seek God. All have turned away, all have become corrupt; there is no one who does good, not even one. Do all these evildoers know nothing? They devour my people as though eating bread; they never call on the Lord. But there they are, overwhelmed with dread, for God is present in the company of the righteous.”
Community and accountability are parts of discipleship and we want people to encourage, challenge, and build-up one another.
Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another.” and Hebrews 10:24-25 “And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”
