YOUNG ADULTS EVANGELISM EVENT | SAT 28 SEP | 6.30 PM | FELLOWSHIP HALL
Join the Young Adults for an evangelism event titled ‘Who do you think you are?’, as we address identity concerns that many believing and non-believing young adults face today. In an age of identity categories, online profiles and relativism, what significance does a Christian faith hold for our identities? Come and spend time with our YAs and their non-believing friends. Better yet, bring a non-believing friend to come talk about these issues. Register at tinyurl.com/identitygbc, and do pray for those that God will bring to this event.
