Young Adults

Eastview Christian Church loves young adults. Our irresistible community of young adults is integrated into the greater life of Eastview through Sunday services, small groups, and serving. As you get involved with young adults at Eastview, it is our prayer this will be strong and fruitful season in your faith journey.
MONTHLY GATHERING

Throughout the week our young adults are scattered in small groups all over Bloomington/Normal but once a month we gather together our entire young adult ministry. Our prayer is that we would become the most irresistible community of young adults for Bloomington/Normal. We want to display the irresistible message of the Gospel through our community and want our inner lives of faith to impact not only those within our ministry but also the Bloomington/Normal community. Sometimes we hang out and have fun, sometimes we serve together, sometimes we grow together, but each month our desire is to come together in community.

 

Upcoming Gather Events:

 

September 20th - Bonfire

Join us on the Patio at Eastview's Normal Campus for a bonfire from 7-9 PM. This Friday night will be a casual hangout so bring your friends! We'll have s'mores and other fun fall stuff. No registration necessary, but please let us know you're coming on our Facebook Event.

 

October 18th - After Party

Join us at the Destihl Brewery directly following the All Church Night of Worship for a Young Adult After Party. No registration needed, just show up for some great fellowship!

 

November 7th - Friendsgiving 

Our annual Friendsgiving event is one of the largest gatherings we have. We invite you to join us in the Sanctuary at Eastview's Normal Campus for a meal and fellowship. Registration is required for this event and will open in October! Check back for updates. 

SMALL GROUPS

We are a groups based ministry. Because we don’t have our own church service, small groups make up the core of young adults. They are the fastest and most fruitful way to connect with other young adults at Eastview. For more information about joining a group, contact Shayla at smiller@eastview.church.

 

If you're a young adult under 25, we recommend heading to Sojourn for your small group experience. See below!

SOJOURN

A small group initiative focused on gathering young adults ages 25 and under in our community. We know that life in young adulthood is temporary and often involving a lot of changes, so we've created a consistent space where we can gather in community and explore faith in Jesus.  Each week we come together for a time of connection, teaching, and table discussions. If you don't have a place to go already, we would love for you to join us!

Thursday Evenings 7-8:30PM

ENCOUNTER

Eastview has a partnership with Encounter, a community of college students seeking Jesus who gather at Illinois State University. They come together every week to worship, pray, learn from the Word, and encourage each other. Encounter's Monday night meeting is a chance to get away from classes and worship together as a large group. If you are a college student already invested at ISU we highly recommend diving deeper into Encounter. 

 

Every Monday night at 8:30pm.
Capen Auditorium.  (2nd floor of Edwards Hall)
