Adults

We encourage all adults to get plugged in to a ministry at Incarnation. Through our Sunday and weekday classes and Bible studies, Community Life Groups, and Growth Groups, every person is provided an opportunity to build key relationships that can last a lifetime. Community is an important part of life at Incarnation. Together, you become renewed in your faith.

We also encourage you to get involved by serving each other during worship and serving the poor in our community. We hope you will connect with us so we can help get you plugged in where it best meets your needs.

How are Christians to relate to the world around them? What does it mean to be in the world but not of the world? How exactly are we to be salt and light to the culture around us? This semester we will find the answers to these questions and more in an unlikely source: a second century anonymous Christian writing known as the Epistle to Diognetus. Come for the study, and stay for the community. Led by Jon and Vivien Jordan. (Jon brings the seminary; Viv brings the summer camp.)
