Young Adults

Lead Teacher: Jacquie Bokow

College students and other young adults are invited to come any Saturday they find themselves in D.C. to join the discussion. We study the Bible, grapple with challenging issues of faith, and socialize with other people at the same stage of life. The class has studied pleasing God, the life of David, money and service, and distorted images of self, among others. No preparatory reading is required, and fruit and muffins are always available. Class begins @9:45am in Parlor B.
