Young Adult Services
For Adults 18-34 years
If you are between the ages of 18-34, come join us. We have a good time discussing why it is that we believe certain things. At this time, some of us may not be able to physically get together, but it is nice to get to see, chat with, and encourage each other on Wednesday evenings with those that are able to make it. I want to encourage you to not miss out and join the conversation.
We ask that if you are asymptomatic in any way to please stay home and join us on Facebook Live. Since we now have children's services, we ask that you drop your children there during this time. We are moving forward to opening up more and more in the weeks to come and we will keep you posted. Again, we all need to follow the guidelines of social distancing and hand washing.

Questions? Contact Angela Thomas
In Promise Land we want to provide a safe and fun environment for children to play while parents attend church services and Sunday school. Our classrooms are clean, safe and full of age appropriate activities and toys and our volunteers are carefully screened. But Promise Land is way more than just daycare, changing diapers and play time. We believe that building a strong foundation in Christ begins when our children are babies. We introduce them to the Bible and Jesus through songs and creation and build on that as they grow. Take the Promise Land Virtual tour below to get a little glimpse of Berean's vision for little children. Little ones are very important to Jesus and and they are very important to us.
