This year, (2017) we are excited to organize our 2nd annual YABs Fellowship Week, with the focus on strengthening our global sense of Anabaptist identity and community within the young adult context.
As Young Anabaptists (YABs), we want to use the third week in June on an annual basis to celebrate our common faith and roots in our different cultural contexts by studying and discussing a passage from Scripture, sharing songs and prayer requests, hearing each other’s stories and praying for each other. We’ve compiled some materials below to incorporate into your own local context, no matter what time you meet during the week. Our prayer is that they help draw you into greater community (koinonia), not only in your local communities, but in your international Anabaptist community.
We also encourage you to take the time during that week to reach out to other Anabaptists & Mennonite youth or young adult groups in your area or reconnect with friends you met during GYS to spend time in fellowship together or serve in your community together. Maybe you even want talk about the discussion questions together and spend time praying for each other! We’d love to see how you celebrate YABs Fellowship Week in your community so please be sure to share pictures and videos with us if you can, or even a recap of your discussion.
Read the letter below to learn more about YABs Fellowship Week and how you can be involved. Be sure to watch Facebook and the website for the materials that will be available later this month!
Feel free to contact us with any questions at email@example.com.
Grace and peace to you in the name of Jesus,
The YABs Committee
