We are a group of young adults. Some of us are going to college or graduate school.  Some of us are in the working world, building our careers. And some of us are still trying to figure things out.

We are a community that seeks to understand Scripture and how it speaks to our lives.

OUR GATHERINGS

We formally gather twice a week. We meet at 9:45am on Sunday mornings. We also gather on Thursday nights at 7:30pm. Both times are dedicated to study, fellowship, and prayer. The 18.20s are very social and spontaneous. It is not uncommon to have several events going on outside the Church.

Young Adult Community Building

By Stuart G on June 13, 2017

Most people long for deep, meaningful relationships. At Bloomingdale Church, we are seeking to cultivate that kind of community amongst the Young Adults.

This summer, we are intentionally seeking to build a Jesus-centered community through small group Bible reading and informal discussions, impromptu hang-out sessions, board game nights, picnics, potlucks, movies, bike rides, service projects, city outings, new cultural experiences—the possibilities are endless! We meet mostly on Thursday evenings from 6:30-8:30pm (location subject to change).

 

If you or anyone you know is interested in joining and helping build this community, contact stuartg@bloomingdalechurch.org.

24 Hours of Prayer and Solitude

Our annual 24-hour Good Friday Prayer Vigil event gave people a chance to slow down during the Easter season and refocus themselves upon Jesus. Through five different prayer stations, with light acoustic music playing in the background, this event left many in deep contemplation (like Mark F of Glenbard North HS pictured above) all day and night.

Whether you had a pleading on your heart to bring before God, or you wanted to give God thanks for his daily blessings, this prayer event was beneficial. It addressed all Biblical aspects of prayer and invited participants to turn and put their faith in Jesus for the forgiveness of their sins.

If you did not get a chance to partake in the Prayer Vigil this year, we would like to extend an invitation for next year’s vigil. We love meeting new people and want them to encounter Jesus.
