Young Adults

Young Adult Ministry is the age-specific ministry at Bethlehem Lutheran Church that recognizes the unique variety of needs and gifts of young adults and families and seeks to walk along side these members in identifying God's activity in their lives. We do this through Faith Formation, Mission, Connecting and Gathering on a regular basis. Please contact Deaconess Kristen (kristen@bethlehem-lutheran.net) or Pastor Katie (pastor@bethlehem-lutheran.net) for more information or with comments and suggestions.

 

Young Adult Book Club

 We call ourselves "Las Mojitas" because we like to read, chat and drink a mojito! If you also like to read, chat and drink mojitos, please join us! We are a casual group and have discussed politics, feminism, relationships, sexuality, forgiveness, faith, and all sorts of topics in "coming of age" stories. Books we have read in the past include: Jesus for President, Braving the Wilderness, Where the Crawdads Sing, City of Girls, and Educated. If you would like to join us, please do, and this isn't just a ladies group! All are welcome.

How our group works: we all read the book; then the first person done sets up a poll for when we will get together, a date is selected, then everyone else has a deadline to finish reading. Then we get together and discuss over a mojito!

 

Current Young Adult Book Club

On May 14 at 7:00 p.m. we will be discussing the book White Fragility: Why It's So Hard for White People to Talk About Racism by Robin DiAngelo using Zoom for this online meeting. This book is a fascinating and challenging look at "why it's so hard for white people to talk about racism." While we are open and encourage others to join our conversation, we do require participants to actually have read this book before joining the conversation. Please let Deaconess Kristen (kristen@bethlehem-lutheran.net) know if you would like to be included in the conversation and she will send you a link to join.

Please contact Deaconess Kristen (kristen@bethlehem-lutheran.net) or Deaconess Sarah (sarah@bethlehem-lutheran.net) with any questions or suggesions.
