"Let no one look down on your youthfulness, but rather in speech, conduct, love, faith and purity show yourself as an example to those who believe."
- 1 Timothy 4:12
4:12 is Christian adults in their twenties and thirties experiencing ministries through a balance of fellowship, life-sharing, spiritual growth, and outreach. Join us every month throughout the year for a variety of events from hayrides to bowling, to a Operation Donation service project and more. 4:12 offers great opportunities to meet other people and see where they are in their lives. The best way to feel a part of things is to get involved!
