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.

Ministry Ethic: Through our conversations, we will integrate what we know of the Gospel with the world around us.  Topics include faith and work, practical implications of the Kingdom of God, being created as the image of God, living out holiness, and many more relevant topics.

2023 Program Overview: This summer, we will use material from the book [Un] Intentional, by Doug Smith with focus on how to understand and relate to the technology surrounding us everyday from a Christian stadpoint.
