YOUNG ADULTS: THE NEIGHBOURHOOD
The Dictionary defines a neighbourhood in three ways. The first (“a district or community within a town or city”) speaks to geography. The second (“the area surrounding a particular place, person, or object”) speaks to proximity. And the third, (a “neighbourly feeling or conduct” speaks to behaviour. “The Neighbourhood” Young Adults community at AVC aspires to be a Kingdom-focused and Christ-centered community that reflects all three of those definitions.
We are men and women ages 18 – 28ish who long to see God’s kingdom come into our homes, our universities, our workplaces, and our city. We believe that authentic community provides the friendship, insight, encouragement, and wisdom needed to face the joys and challenges of walking through life and the transitions, celebrations, and challenges of young adulthood. We aspire to be a community that is welcoming, hospitable, caring and characterised by a love that is a result of His extravagant generosity and love to us.
Our hope for our YA community is that everyone feels like they have a place to belong, be encouraged, be challenged, and have opportunities to use their God-given gifts. If you are 18-28ish and looking for a place to build community and pursue Jesus together, please come join us!
There are many ways that Young Adults can get connected at the Vineyard. We have lunches after church once or twice a month. We have worship Gatherings once a month and other weekly events at coffee shops and other local spots around town like the Corn Maze, bowling, movie nights, Boardwalk cafe, etc. We have an annual missions trip to Mexico each summer, and a fantastic Winter Retreat every February.
All of our events can be found on our Facebook group called Vineyard Young Adults. This is where you will get all the details about our Young Adult gatherings as well as other events things taking place. This is the place to find out what people are doing on the weekend and join in! You can also download the AVC app or visit our Instagram page.
