Young Adults

Journey is a new kind of worship experience held Sunday evenings from 5:30 PM to 6:30 PM in the Fellowship Hall. The praise band kicks off with music followed by a message from Brian Townsend and small-group discussion relating to every-day life. We welcome college students from New Mexico State University and anyone who enjoys a more casual, friendly setting to share faith and fellowship.
