Connect - Grow - Live

Sunday Mornings for Young Adults

Connect 1 (Matthew Wallis)
A gathering of nearly-weds and newlyweds. We share experiences and help each other through the beginning stages of marital life with all of its excitement and trepidation. Looking to God to help us establish our relationships, we learn together. Some of us have recently added a new child, cat, dog or job to the family.

Connect 2 (Clay Ryan and Netanya Hudson)
Now that we’re in our 30’s, do we have to start acting like adults? Our lives are filled with careers and family. Life seems to have shifted into a higher gear. We are called to share this crazy life in a community. Joy shared is multiplied. Struggles are lighter with friends who share the burden. Join us as we navigate this stage together. We are in our 30’s (mostly) and/or have preschool and elementary age children.

Connect 3 (Dan & Jillian Smith)
Relationships develop in community as we walk God’s path together. Here’s a place to be yourself, build friendships, share needs and celebrate victories. Generally, we are 40’s to early 50’s and/or with middle school and high school aged children.

Connect 4 (Lee Ann Kelsey and Kim Davis)
We are in the middle of our career, 40+, looking forward to the next life opportunities and retirement some day. We pray without ceasing for our kids who are young adults. Looking to God, we know He will direct us in the challenges life throws our way.
Connect 5 (Dawn Lane and Tracy Thompson)
Friendship matters, especially among women, as we journey through life. Connect Women is a safe, fun place where women of any age and any life situation come together for friendship, prayer and spiritual support. 

A Journaling Journey
Come on a journey as we explore a tangible way to focus our attention on God's word... not a how-to but a discussion and time to practice and apply what we learn. We will use the Bible and the book Illuminated Journaling as a guide. Kim Davis, Room 201 C

The Gospel of Luke: Transformation
Our study of the Gospel of Luke continues, beginning with chapter 10. We will look at the ways people's live are transformed through Jesus and His Kingdom and how we are called and commissioned to be ambassadors for Christ.
Will McDonald, Room 201 E

Finding God in the Everyday
"...brush the dust from your dingy days and reveal the extraordinary that is to be found in the ordinary." (Karen Prior) Have you ever though that making the bed or brushing your teeth could be an act of worship? We will talk about seeing God and feeling His Spirit through the small and insignificant things you do every day. 
Susan DeLong, Room 203 A

How God Provides
We will study Scripture and discuss: How God comforts you, when you feel angry, God gives you confidence, when you're making a decision, God takes your worries, when you doubt your faith, God sends hope, when you're tempted to gossip, God guides you, when you are hurting.
Crawford Johnson, Room 203 B

Acts: Christian Community Then and Now
This study continues into the five years of the church and watches the growth of the first churches and how this pertains to us. Acts reveals a vibrant, growing, witnessing Christian community doing mighty and wonderful things as God showed up through His Spirit.
Rhonda Baker, Room 209 C
