Junction | Young Adults
Junction exists to create an authentic community that encourages young single adults in the Brazos Valley to move into the family of God and onto maturity in Christ.
Junction, the young adult ministry at Grace, seeks to impact the world by equipping singles in their 20s and 30s with a deeper understanding of how a growing relationship with Christ can change our lives. All are welcome in our diverse, thriving community and no matter where we are in our spiritual journey, we all need to grow in our faith and our understanding of who God is and who He says we are. Our heart behind community is that people would connect in rich, authentic relationships where they seek to care for one another and partner together for spiritual growth and kingdom impact. Some of us are seasoned professionals, some are in graduate school, and others are just beginning careers (undergrads please check out our college ministry).
We gather for Bible study, coffee, movie nights, Junction (Thursday night young adults gathering), snow cones, costume parties, sports watching parties, crafting, day trips, retreats and more in order to deepen friendships and begin new ones. We serve together at the The Big Giveaway and Country Fair, give to Operation Christmas Child, support missionaries, go on mission trips, and help with other volunteer projects.
AVOID FOMO! Sign up to get weekly emails about our activities so you don't miss out! Also please add yourself to to the "Junction" GroupMe text group to get spontaneous info about unofficial Junction events or updates about official ones!

JUNCTION - A Young Adult Gathering!
Thursday Nights 7-9 p.m.
Who: Any 20/30s single young adult wanting to connect with others and grow spiritually (Anderson, Southwood, Creekside and people not attending GBC are welcome!). Undergrads please check out Grace's college ministry!
What: Come hang out with some amazing young adults while we fellowship and have snacks, worship through song, listen to Tod teach a message from God's Word in applicable and challenging ways, then finish with small table groups for discussion and prayer. We also set up table groups to get together outside of Thursday nights for additional fellowship! Folks stay at the same table for about eight weeks to allow for community building and then we switch it up again. New folks are placed at tables when they arrive so don't worry if you're new and don't know anyone--by the end of the evening you will! Check out www.junctionbcs.org!
When: Thursday nights from 7-9ish p.m.
Where: Grace's Anderson campus in the College Auditorium at 701 Anderson Street (across the street from "big church")
Why: Why not? It will be a great time, so come on out, meet some new people, get connected and join the fun!
We want to reach all the young adults in the Brazos Valley no matter which church they attend, if any. SO COME, and BRING YOUR FRIENDS or other young adults you might know from school, work, the gym, grocery store, etc! We are praying and trusting God to do big things, and we'd love for you to be a integral part by praying for this ministry as well. Our greatest desire is to continue to provide relevant, challenging teaching that helps us mature in Christ AND provide opportunities for authentic community and meaningful fellowship.
