LANSING, Ill. (July 12, 2021) – The COVID-19 pandemic has made it difficult for Supply Young Adult Ministry to live up to its name and “supply” its participants with food and in-person fellowship. Recently, that has changed and the group is meeting together once again and inviting young adults from the community to join them.
Supply is a ministry that offers “food, fun, and fellowship to young adults ages 18-30 in the Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana area,” said Justin Rodgers, leader of the group.
The group meets every week, providing free dinner and games to participants and offering small group discussions from a Biblical perspective.
The group has connections with multiple churches, and meets in various locations, including Cornerstone Church in Lansing and Thorn Creek Reformed Church in South Holland. Supply meets the first three Mondays of the month from 7 – 9 p.m. and the fourth Sunday of the month from 3 – 5 p.m.
In its discussions, the group has been working through the ten commandments and their significance in today’s world. In the past, Supply has discussed topics like the Israel/Palestine conflict, “Satan shoes,” cohabitation before marriage, and dietary laws of the Biblical Old Testament.
“If you’re looking for a place to connect with people your age, learn about God, and have a good time, regardless of your background or beliefs, Supply is the place for you,” Rodgers said.
The next Sunday meeting is scheduled for July 25 from 3 – 5 p.m. at Cornerstone Church (3440 178th Street, Lansing) where discussion will focus on “Taking the Lord’s name in vain and honoring the Sabbath,” the game will be nine square, and the meal will be tacos.
