Young Adult ministries are not readily available in Evergreen and the surrounding communities. This group of people is under-represented and often feels like there is not really a place for them, or a place that meets their specific needs, in mountain community churches.
Aspen Ridge Church is one of the largest churches in the area with thriving ministries, especially ministries geared towards younger people. I feel confident that the Lord is calling Aspen Ridge Church and me personally, towards an intentional focus to minister to the young adults in this community and the surrounding communities.
The vision for this young adult group will be to create a welcoming, safe space for young adults to gather. My personal goal is to foster connection and community in a church environment. It is not necessarily to create a spiritually or theologically centered group. I would love to welcome young adults into our building where they can feel safe and cared for. It would be our hope that once these young adults feel at home at Aspen Ridge, they would assimilate into existing small groups and/or Bible studies or create their own.
The new Young Adult Ministry (ages 18-29) will be launching on Friday, February 17 at 6:30 in the Student Center, with trivia and a nacho bar! Subsequently we will meet on the first and third Fridays of the month. Join this exciting and welcoming community and strengthen your connection with the Lord and other young people. If you would like to volunteer in this dynamic new ministry, we are still looking for just the right leaders. Contact Clare Retterer with any questions at clare[email protected]
