Young Adult & Campus Ministries

The diocesan young adult ministry office supports local congregations, campus ministries and diocesan-wide events and programs toward the goals of nurturing the spiritual lives of young adults in their twenties and thirties and reaching out to those not yet engaged. Please visit our website for young adults: EDOWYoungAdults.org! Whether you're new to the area and looking for a local congregation, a student looking for a campus ministry or leaving this region for a new job or school, we'd love to help you get connected. Just provide us some basic information and we'll be in touch!

In these COVID-19 days...

While we deal with the necessary responses to the COVID-19 pandemic, we're hosting some things to help us all stay connected, and happy to spread the word when others are doing the same. Visit the Calendar page of the young adults website for details about the online Compline services each Sunday evening at 9pm and the online Bible Study on Monday evenings at 8pm. You might also check out the EDOW Young Adults page on Facebook to find out about the virtual happy hours that some of our young adults are planning and hosting! And this coming Wednesday, April 22, we'll celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day with one of our young adults leading a Zoom discussion on climate change! Details and link are on the young adults website.

Young Adults Creative Spiritual Journaling

Join us on Monday nights at 8pm, beginning April 12th, for a guided creative journaling process built around the Gospel readings for the coming Sunday. We'll spend the next six weeks of Easter creatively engaging scripture with ink, color and poetry. There's no cost, but you'll want to have a few things on hand for each exercise: 1) a sketchbook, 2) colored pencils or markers, and 3) ink pens (color and style of your choice).
 
I went and grabbed my colors, pens and sketchpad at Michaels today: Drawing Pad was $5.99, Color pencils were $5.99, and the Colored Markers including the black for drawing were $11.99. If you have these things around the house, no need to buy anything. They can also all be found on Amazon for about $15! (SketchpadColorsPens)
You don't have to be an artist or even consider yourself a creative type of person; these are guided exercises. If you're with us for all six weeks, you'll have six journal entries and maybe a new habit or two for engaging scripture, images and your imagination! The Zoom link is on the website!
