“United” is a young adult community (20’s, 30’s & early 40’s) that has a vision to allow God to facilitate a fun environment where we can come together in fellowship and explore our God given gifts and His word. We believe God not only wants a strong relationship with each of us but also desires that we have strong relationship with each other.. All the shifts and changes in life make it hard for relationships to stand, but we believe Jesus is our firm foundation and he has given us the Bible to use as a manual to build strong relationships that will not fail. This group will not only benefit our members but also others out in the world that will see the light coming from these people “United” in Christ. Please call Tonya Shelton at 618-530-2316 if you would like to attend our next United event!
