Young Adult Ministry
The mission statement of Our Young to Middle Adult Ministry is to...
"Minister to the young adult population by providing support, social events, helping to facilitate Bible studies, and organizing activities within the ages of eighteen to thirty."
We have many opportunities for young adults at Central. In addition to a Sunday school classes, we have small groups for men and women throughout the year. Young adults can enjoy participating in our men's or co-ed softball teams, biannual golf tournaments, Monday evening men's basketball fellowship, women's ministries, church picnics and more! For further information or to become involved with Central's young adult ministries, please contact Linda Segars.
Young Adult Women's Group: Uninvited by Lysa TerKeurst
Leader: Heather Learn
Every Wednesday, September 14th - December 14th, 6:00 - 7:30 p.m.
Malambri Center Room 232
In Uninvited, Lysa TerKeurst shares her own personal experiences from the incredibly painful childhood abandonment by her father to the perceived judgment of the perfectly toned woman one elliptical machine over. This study is designed to help women embrace God-honoring ways to process hurt. It suggests what to pray for to steady the soul and restore confidence, and is designed to help overcome the fears that feed our insecurities by understanding the secret of belonging. Please be sure to purchase the book beforehand. A nursery will be provided during this class. No cost for this study.
Young Adult Men's Group: The Barefoot Church
Leaders: Christopher Williams and Nathan Love
Every Wednesday, September 14th - December 14th, 6:15 - 7:30 p.m.
Open Door Classroom 275
Come upstairs after Wednesday night dinner for a time of study and fellowship for young men. Discussion will be centered around ways to live as Christians and share the Gospel by our actions in today's world. People are hungry to make a difference in their community, yet most don't know where to start. Our first study will be of Brandon Hatmaker's book, The Barefoot Church. The Barefoot Church shows readers how today's church can be a catalyst for individual, collective, and social renewal in any context. Readers will discover practical ideas that end up being as much about the Gospel and personal transformation as they are about serving the poor. Drawing from his own journey, Brandon Hatmaker proves to readers that serving the least is not a trendy act of benevolence, but a lifestyle of authentic community and spiritual transformation.
Copies of the book are available online and at area bookstores. There is no cost for this study and a nursery is available.
Florence After 5
Central's Faith, Friends, and Family Group invite all young adults and families to join each month for Florence After 5! We will meet in the Irby Street parking lot of the church at 5:45 p.m. and walk to the event. The band starts at 6:00 p.m. We will determine where to go for dinner after everyone arrives at the church, and will head to dinner no later than 8:00 p.m. This is a wonderful opportunity to get to know the families and young adults of Central. It is also a nice way to support our downtown area.
For dates and band information, please visit Florence After 5's website.
