Our Young Adults group is made up primarily of people in their 20s and 30s who want to share rich friendships and meet new people as we follow Jesus together. We strive to provide a point of connection to the church for both single and married folks, and we gladly welcome those who are new to the area or to the church. Come join us for some of our activities and watch the newsletter for other opportunities.
Sunday Morning Worship
Join us for worship at 11 a.m. in the Sanctuary or in Pickard Hall for the alternate worship service, OnPoint@1704. After worship on the fourth Sunday of every month, we typically get lunch together somewhere nearby.
Wednesday Night Bible Study
We meet for Bible study on Wednesday evenings at 6:45 p.m. in room C102 at the church. We're always open to newcomers, and the group regularly includes both single and married folks. We intentionally choose a variety of study topics and seek to foster a space of engaging dialogue and prayer. A few recent studies include various works of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, the letter of James, an 8-week study on the biblical vision of reconciliation, and Tokens of Trust: An Introduction to Christian Belief by Rowan Williams. This fall (2016), we will be focusing our attention on Jesus's parables in the synoptic gospels. After Bible study, be sure to join us for dinner and/or dessert at a local restaurant.
Are you looking to deepen your relationships with other WMPC young adults in a smaller context? Consider starting a small group! The size and frequency of gatherings would depend on participants. If interested, please contact James for more details.
We go on two retreats each year--one in the fall and one in the spring. These weekends away are a great way to get to know new people in the church, further develop relationships with peers and grow in your walk with God. Recent retreat themes have included storytelling, prayer and spiritual friendship (fall 2015).
WMPC Young Adult Fall Retreat
The young adults group is heading to the mountains for an intentional weekend of rest, recreation and fellowship—with God and with one another!
Cost is $75 per person. Register online or talk to James Fenwick via email or at ext. 251.

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. Please send your college student physical mailing address and email address to Tonya Higgins. Laura Boyd 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 academic year. Please be in touch to be sure you (or your college-aged daughter or son) receive a care package.
