Young adults are next! They are the next business owners, pastors, community leaders, parents, health care professionals, teachers, and more. Spiritually, emotionally, occupationally, and mentally, young adults are the next ones to set the tone. On Mondays at 7pm, Encounter aims to give young adults the opportunity to advance from adolescence to adulthood and take those places of influence by encountering God, encountering people, and being prepared for the next steps of life.

Nostalgia is everywhere- it's in the movies, shows, and music we enjoy, the clothes we wear, and the advertisements that we watch. In so many ways, it has become part of the cultural zeitgeist. But how far is too far? Wat if our love for nostalgia is holding us back from bigger and better things? Join us for this journey at Encounter, Mondays at 7 PM.

We come together to encourage each other as women to learn from God’s Word what our true purpose is and to see that God created our hearts so beautifully!  We are intricate, breathtaking, and created in the image of God.  There is a unique part of His heart only we can portray.  He knows our heart and it’s time we start unveiling it together!  Join us as a community of young women where we can share life experiences and learn about God’s intentions for creating us. Welcome to Her Heart!
