The Young Adults Fellowship (YAF) of HopeBible-PresbyterianChurch is a group of
dedicated, friendly and encouraging young people. We support each other and
grow together in Christ. As a group of young people, we focus on the
spiritual needs of those in high school, university and others in the work
What Do We Do?
The main purpose of our YAF is not only to encourage each other through the
fellowship that we have in Christ, but to teach young adults some of the
lessons, concepts and principles taught and instructed in the Bible.
In order to reach these
objectives, the YAF has regular Bible Studies, Share and Prayer sessions
and other various gatherings. Our Share and Prayer sessions are times set
aside especially to share our burdens, our joys and our testimonies with
each other and to gather in prayer. Some of the activities that are
organized by the YAF include having fellowship dinners, guest speakers,
seminars, camps and other outings.
When and Where Do We Meet?
The YAF gatherings are generally held at the StoneMansion (82 Wattle Street, Fullarton)
on Friday nights and start at . Our meetings finish
at approximately and include a time
for supper, giving everyone ample opportunity to catch up with each other
and fellowship together. Transport can also be arranged and provided for those
who need it.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice,
holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.”
The theme for 2012
reflects a desire for us as Christians to walk in a manner that is pleasing
to God. The apostle Paul tells us that this involves presenting our bodies
in its entirety, reflecting what Jesus said when He told us to love God
with all our heart, soul, and mind. This is certainly no small matter that
we are asked of, yet we are told that this is our reasonable service that
is expected of us. Indeed, when we think of the sacrifice that Christ made
when He shed His blood on the cross for our sins, even when we were still
sinners and rejected Him, so that we may be called the Children of God, it
no longer seems like a burden but a joy that we may please Him. May God
bless the Young Adult Fellowship as it continues to strive to present our
bodies as “a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God”!
