Attention All Young Adults!
Are you the only young adult in your parish, stuck between Sunday school and adult forum? Looking for a way to connect with your peers, and deepen your faith? We want to hear from you! We are interested in putting together a Bible study for young adults (18-35), as a way to deepen our connections to one another and to God. We think we’ll meet once a month, possibly the first Tuesday of the month at 4:30 PM, beginning August 6, 2019. If you are interested, please contact the Rev Jazzy Bostock at revjazzybostock@gmail.com or Niambi Mercado at nmercado@antioch.edu.
