Young Adults... Together for Christ.
Young single and married adults (post-high school to upper 30s-ish... matter of fact, even 40's would fit right in); anyone still raising little kids
Our generation doesn’t seem to stay in one church for long and many tend to keep a “safe distance.” Singles wish there was more vibrancy in the church. Young parents struggle to keep their heads above water. The American Dream is a constant attraction, often at the expense of the eternal work we know we’ve been called to do. We’re trying to find the right balance in life. Down deep inside, we don't want to fall into the trap of “going through the motions” with church. Consequently we long for sincere and passionate Christianity. We’re starting to see the brevity of life and we want to make a difference for Christ. We’d love to team up with other believers and take the journey together as we strive to make the Word of God the highest priority in our life.
Purpose: To focus a portion of our church life on connecting with like-minded adults in similar stages of life as we fulfill our church vision/purpose (discipleship through Bible teaching/study, fellowship, prayer, sacrificial service, and outreach). We want to intentionally get to know each other, care for each other, grow together, serve together, and enjoy life together. We do all of this ultimately for the sake of the gospel in us and through us (Matt. 28:18-20). If God’s called us to this church, we want to be "all here!"
Our Mission Statement: The Young Singles and Marrieds group of Discovery Baptist Church sees great value in and commit ourselves to growing in:
• Consistent and meaningful Bible study and prayer (both personally and as a group)
• Regular, sincere, uplifting and purposeful fellowship
• Sacrificial, loving support for each other and our community/world
• Intentional, unceasing evangelism in every area of our lives
• And personal accountability for all of the above
Interactive study (expositional and topical), followed by 10:00-10:15 fellowship
Quarterly large group fellowships
TBA throughout the year (events such as our "Autumn Dinner Party," "Christmas Dessert," etc.)
