Young Adult Ministry: The Bridge
Especially for: The 20s and 30s of Indian Springs. This new ministry, founded in 2018, bridges the gap between youth and young adults. It serves as a transition point to engage young adults in fruitful conversation and study while providing time to engage with the larger adult services in the Main Tabernacle.
Through our conversations, we will integrate what we know of the Gospel with the world around us. See below for more details about our everyday program during camp meeting!

Weekend Workshop at the Campground
March 8-10, 2024
Speakers : Lewis Crouse, Meredith Baumann and Alex McGinnis.
This is a fantastic opportunity to come together at the campground as adults, both young and old, and dig deeper into the word of God. We’ll be working through a practical theology of holiness, seeking to understand what the call of holy living looks like in our daily lives.
This weekend will be modeled after the Bridge gatherings, where we prioritize facilitated discussion in order to help each individual share their own stories and process through the content together. Our hope is that this weekend will help deepen relationships of those who attend and make camp meeting all the more impactful come July.

Program Highlights during Camp Meeting
- 8:00 – 9:15 am on the Crouse Porch (Cabin 138), across from Winky’s shop. We have a big sign hanging on the porch; you can’t miss it.
- Each summer we’ll have a different study, written by Lewis, for your engagement. We’ll publish the study prior to camp so that you can begin thinking about our topic before arriving.
- As opposed to other ministries around the campground where the focus is on teaching, our gatherings are facilitated discussion, centered around our discussion guide. This provides an opportunity to process our topic together and ask hard questions. We prize discussion and the exploration of our faith together as the body of Christ.
Evenings – to be announced! We’re definitely planning an ice cream social and/or other ways to fellowship after the 7:30 pm Service. Stay in touch!
