I am confident of this, that the one who began a good work among you will bring it to completion by the day of Jesus Christ.
— Philippians 1:6

Young Adult & College

After graduation, many of our young adults choose to move away from home and their church family to attend college or pursue other dreams. Our Young Adult Ministry strives to keep students connected to their church home no matter where they may go, and continue encouraging them along their faith journey. Along with regular check-ins throughout the year, individuals have the chance to take part in leadership, service and fellowship events, day retreats, and other opportunities to strengthen their faith with others the same age.

Starting College, Transferred, or Recently Graduated? If you are starting college, transferred schools, or just recently graduated, contact Kelsey to update your information. New students can sign up to receive email updates and notices about upcoming activities, prayer partner connections, and care packages in the link below to join in on the fun!

We are currently collecting addresses for young adults and college students to receive notes of encouragement and/or a care package during the 2018-2019 year. If you or someone you know would be interested in receiving this, please fill out the form online or email Kelsey Battleson with their information.
