Young Adult Ministry Fall 2019
For the past year St. Luke has had a college-age small group and a (post-college) young adult group. This Fall we have decided to combine them into one! Thus starting Monday, August 19th our combined Young Adults small group gathering will begin at 6:30 PM with a meal which will lead into our worship and sharing time. I’m very excited about this and I hope that it brings energy and momentum to our ministry to young people at St. Luke. Contact me (John Duff) at email@example.com for more info.
