August & September - Community Young Adults’ Group
For young adults (20-25) wondering
- how to navigate relationships with parents as an adult
- how in the world they’ll pay off their debt
Emily Duffin and Pastor Brenna are looking to facilitate a small group of about 15 young adults to explore some of these exciting (and terrifying) times.
The group will meet 4-6 times throughout August and September at a community location like the library or a community center.
Please email Pastor Brenna if you’re interested. More details TBD.
