General Assembly Activities for Young Adults!

Hello World!

Posted: January 19, 2011 by Disciples Young Adult Commission in Announcements

Welcome to the new blog of the Disciples Young Adult Commission!  Pretty nice digs, huh?  Ahhh, it even still has that nice new website smell.  😉  We’re still moving in here but soon you’ll find this place to be full of interesting and creative articles by commission members.  In fact, we are coinciding the kickoff of our new blog with a week long celebration for young adults!  That’s right, young adult week is from Feb 6th – Feb 13th and we will have a week filled with devotionals to help us celebrate the breath of life who is Jesus Christ!

But it won’t stop there!  Our hope is that this blog will be a creative outlet for commission members and a way for us to communicate our message to other young adult disciples and Disciples congregations.

So we hope you’ll stay awhile and relax in our new pad here on the Internet.  Oh, and before you leave be sure you signup to receive updates so you don’t miss out on anything!  The entire YAC wishes everyone a great 2011!
