GAC Young Adults

Who are our young adults?

Hard to put a label on, we categorize young adults as a college a career group, typically in the age range from 18-30. This group services those both in school or jumping right into careers, married or single. We hope that this can serve as a landing place for those looking to get involved in the life of the church.

When do they meet?

Currently meeting for a Sunday School time at 9:30 between services.

What else do they do?

We are excited to be growing our Young Adult offerings both at the church and in the community. As this is a newly formed piece of our ministry we are still trying to find what fits our needs best. We do have a partnership with the local college to run a bible study on Thursday nights at Fresh Grounds Coffeehouse.

We also have entered into a partnership with Jess Vormelker to work on campus with students.
