Welcome to the Young Adults group for both singles and marrieds! Take a look at the info below. If this fits the bill for you, we'd love to have you join us! Questions or ideas? Contact Enriko & Alisa Stigter and Loren Beckner.
Who… Young single and married adults (age 18 and up).
Why… 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 are trying 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 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 of each other and our community/world
Intentional, unceasing evangelism in every area of our lives
And personal accountability for all of the above
Sunday mornings at 9:15 for interactive study together (expositional and topical) [ON HOLD due to COVID-19]
Group Fellowships/Events: 1st & 3rd Sunday of each month, right after the afternoon service (about 4:30-7pm)
