Plans and Details
Here are the notes from the night of the Welcome BBQ.
If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact Christina: firstname.lastname@example.org
After we welcomed the new Young Adults into the group, and after we ate dinner… we opened in prayer, then Jeff shared an overview of the Young Adults ministry:
The Young Adults ministry includes many aspects:
Events (to have fun, build connections over a shared activity)
Bible Study (teaching, small group time, open prayer time)
Worship (worship nights, potentially worship time at Bible Study)
Spontaneous events posted on Facebook (“anybody want to go for ice cream tonight?”…)
Roles (who is focused on what…)
Young Adults - the Young Adults themselves make this ministry go: by participating in the various aspects, by planning the schedule of events, to lead events, initiatives, activities, etc., by inviting out their friends from school, work, etc.
We have an Oversight Leadership Team (Claire, Evange, Chris, Cindy, Christina, Jeff) who help ensure the vision and plans of the Young Adults are moving ahead, and the group has what they need for leadership and framework. Life can get busy for you, and we’ve found it helps to have a team of people who help encourage things along, and to be a resource and support for you.
Christina also will be taking a deeper lead role as she has a few hours of her week in her role description as Westview Ministry Administrator, dedicated to Young Adults ministry.
Regular Communication of plans, details - everything will be on Facebook, and on the YA page of the church’s website.
Discussion and planning of Summer Activities - Christina led us in to a discussion to plan some summer activities. This included weekly events and Bible Study. Bible Study will be on Wednesday nights in the summer.
Bible Study night for the fall will be determined at another YA planning meeting you’ll be invited to sometime in late August. At that meeting the events and other aspects will get planned out for the fall also.
Kaitlin and Tim closed in prayer, praying for the young adults and the summer plans.
