Our Young Adult group is made up primarily of people in their 20s and 30s who are interested in growing in faith, sharing rich friendships, and meeting new people. We strive to provide a point of connection to the church for both single and married people. We also gladly welcome those who are new to the area or new to the church. Come join us for some of our activities and watch the newsletter for other opportunities.
Wednesday Night Bible Study
We gather year-round for Bible Study on Wednesday Nights at 6:45 p.m. in K300. Our discussion group is always open to newcomers and regularly has both single and married folks in attendance. We are intentional in choosing a variety of different studies, and we emphasize thoughtful dialogue and prayer. Recent studies have included Philippians, Psalms, An Altar in the World (Barbara Brown Taylor), The Screwtape Letters (C.S. Lewis), The Orthodox Heretic (Peter Rollins), the Apostles' Creed, and various works by Dietrich Bonhoeffer.
Wednesday Night Fellowship
A group of young adults regularly gathers after Bible Study at a local restaurant to continue conversation and enjoy fellowship.
Young Adult Small Groups
Would you like to meet other young adults and deepen your relationships in a smaller community? Consider joining a Young Adult small group! Each group has 4 to 8 members and meets monthly for dinner, intentional conversation, and prayer. Contact Blake Daniel for more information.
Young Adult Sunday School
Every Sunday morning from 9:30-10:30, we gather for study and fellowship in C303.
The Young Adults at White Memorial go on two retreats per year - one in the fall and one in the spring. These weekends are a great way to get to know new people in the church, to strengthen relationships with peers, and to reflect and worship God together in a different setting. Themes for recent past retreats have been spiritual disciplines (Spring 2011), building community (Fall 2011), and storytelling (Fall 2013).
The next retreat is scheduled for April 11-13 at Kure Beach, NC. The theme is "Rhythms of Prayer" and costs $75. If you are interested contact Blake Daniel.
College Ministry at White Memorial is our way to continue students' connections to this family of faith even when they may be attending colleges and universities outside the Triangle. We also offer opportunities for returning students to reconnect when they come back home.
College Ministry Addresses Needed
WMPC College Ministry wants to stay in touch with you (or your college students)! Please send your college student physical mailing address and email address to Tonya Higgins. Blake will send updates about college gatherings and the Montreat College Conference. As addresses change year to year, please send Tonya mail addresses and email addresses even if you think we already have it.
Our church family also sends care packages to our college students during the spring semester. Please be in touch to be sure you (or your college-aged daughter or son) receive a care package.
