The Elk Grove United Methodist Young Adult group meets periodically for fellowship, to grow in their faith, and at the present moment are learning about handling and making wise choices with money through Financial Peace University. The Young adult group is geared towards young unmarried adults ages 18-30. This group gathers twice a month for dinner and fellowship. During the winter holiday at the beginning of January, the young adults go on a VIM trip (Volunteers In Mission) to Salt Lake City, Utah to work in the UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) warehouse. While there, they prepare supply kits that are sent all over the world to countries and people in need. Please consider joining us.
If you have any questions please contact Mary Popish, Kaitlyn Daley, or Sidney Antonsen.
Our Next Meeting
The next meeting of the Young Adult Group will be Tuesday, October 16th at 6:00 PM at the Popish’s home, 10819 El Arroyo Rd., Elk Grove, CA 95624.
Please let Mary Popish (916-718-7601) know if you will be coming and what time so she can plan dinner accordingly.
We look forward to seeing you there and continuing planning our VIM trip in January as well as discuss necessary fundraising to reduce the cost of the trip.
