Arden is a church blessed with many young families. If you'd like to be a part of our Young Families Ministry please come and join us at any of the following times.
The Young Families Sunday School class is one of the primary gathering places for young families in the church. We meet weekly in the Classroom of the Administration Building for a time of teaching, prayer, and fellowship. The class is taught by Rev. Chad Watkins. We are currently doing a topical study on the doctrine of sanctification (see a description here). If you are new to Arden this is a great first place to plug in and get to know people.
Men's Discipleship Group
In the fall of 2013 we launched a men's discipleship group as an opportunity for young men to gather together for Bible study and fellowship. One of the main objectives of this group is to grow in our understanding of what the Scriptures teach us regarding our roles as husbands, fathers, and friends. This group meets for lunch on the first Tuesday of every month. We are currently discussing the book Knowing God by J.I. Packer.
In addition to our discipleship ministries, we seek to cultivate a strong sense of community among the young families at Arden. To help foster this we have monthly fellowship events for the whole family as well as informal gatherings for the men & women.
If you'd like to get involved with the Young Families Ministry at Arden, please contact Rev. Chad Watkins by email or by phone at 828-684-7221, ext. 309.
