Young Adult Ministry

Even though technology is there to connect us to our Church and its people, we need real contact more than ever. Through Instagram and Facebook and this website, we look to draw young adults to the Gospel message. Through these programs below, young adults will flourish in community and fellowship through the Holy Spirit.

You are invited to follow us on Facebook

Parables and Pubs is a unique experience. It’s nothing special but sometimes profound. There is no better place to bring a friend, talk about deep things, while sipping on a beverage. With live music, a short parable, a great atmosphere, we can all hopefully journey to something better. So come on out to the next one, see you soon.

Our new podcast resource guide is created and will have new content added all the time. Have a question, come find the answer and find a new favorite podcast.

This group has an important tie to the papal encyclical Laudato Si, however our direction is unique. This is a set or outings where we can discover God’s beauty in our local community. With a focus on the local church, the local agriculture, local businesses, and local charities, we will grow in faith and fellowship and gain a greater knowledge and appreciation of our common home. There are plans for 3 neighborhood markets in our parking lot in the summer of 2023.

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.
