Come be a part of a vibrant and growing group!
The Young Adult Ministry of Northern Virginia also has it's own Facebook page
It's your connection to the Young Adults of the Alexandria & Arlington Districts of the UMC!
The Bi-District Young Adult Ministry is a ministry that fills the void that a lot of churches are missing out on. This is an open group for college age students to 40 years old, where we fellowship in many aspects, including spiritual reading, fellowships, and missionary opportunities.
The Young Adult Ministry is offering Book studies on both Tuesday and Thursday nights. The studies are on separate events between the two evenings:
- Every Tuesday: January 8 - February 12th: Meditation Study at St. Luke's UMC, 7:30 p.m., led by Deborah Porras, Associate Pastor at St. Luke's
- Every Thursday: January 3 - February 14th: Prayer Study at St. Matthew's UMC in Annandale, 7 pm
Lenten studies will also be offered both nights beginning on February 19th (21st for Thursday nights) at the same locations.
