Young Adults

for 20 somethings, college students and grads, and post high school adults

Our goal is to provide a church home where you can worship, serve, be challenged to grow in your faith and find community – with others in your same stage of life as well as people from all generations. If you are interested in learning more, contact Lynne McLaughlin.
Small Group
The Young Adults small group meets weekly -
it is currently on hiatus for the summer.
All are welcome to join at any time!

If you are interested in joining or learning more, please contact Lynne McLaughlin.
College Students
Many college students make Thornapple their home church while attending colleges in the area. In a typical year we offer brunches on Sundays for college students, goody bags during exam weeks and opportunities to serve.
