Connect - Grow - Live

Sunday Mornings for Young Adults

Connect 1 - Nearly/Newly Marrieds (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 - Younger Adults  (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 - Median Age Adults (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 - Older Median Age Adults (Lee Ann Kelsey and Kim Davis)
We are in the middle of our career, 45+, 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 - Women's Group (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: A Prophetic Call, Luke 11
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

I choose You: God's Design for Marriage
Marriage is an amazing yet difficult journey. We will examine God's design for marriages as well as our own relationships and how to have a happy marriage that brings glory to God and ministers to those around us.
Jennifer Smith, Room 203 A

How God Provides
We will study Scripture and discuss: How God give you confidence; God sends hope; God guides you; God has created a place in heaven for you; God can fulfill you. 
Crawford Johnson, Room 203 B

A Woman Who Doesn't Quit
No boys allowed for this women's Bible study that explores the 5 habits from the book of Ruth that helps us through on our commitments despite our feelings and embrace the grace of refinement.
Sarah Brisco, Room 209 B

My Witness, My Personality
Our personality affects everything, yet we can work with how we are fearfully and wonderfully made to work effectively live and share our faith. We'll look at various personality tools to enhance our strengths and strengthen our more "challenging" traits.
Renee Jones, Room 209 C

Looking Ahead
In July and August we will meet together to hear the stories of Connect folks and other UBC members. If you're interested in being interviewed or would like to suggest someone for an interview, please contact Shari Barnes,
