My name is Kristina Kuhnert. Emily Savage and I are young, Canadian, Eastern Synod Lutherans doing synod-wide and synod-supported Youth and Young Adult Ministry on the internet (for now!). You may have seen us on Facebook, Twitter or Instagram (@ELCICyoungadults), on YouTube (on the “Young Canadian Lutheran” channel) or perhaps you have heard of the “35 Under 35” project about Young Adults in the Church.
**Here’s some of what’s happening for YOUNG ADULTS (17-35)
“35 Under 35”
There are way more Lutheran Young Adults across the Church than we think there are. I (Kristina) have been talking to young adults and introducing people to 60 (and counting!) Young Adult Lutherans from across the National Church. In each bio YA’s share who they are, what they do, how they are involved in the Church, and what they are hopeful for. You learn about what is important to the growing Church of right now, and of the future.
To read these 60 bios and maybe find a new friend go to @ELCICyoungadults on FB, Twitter or Instagram, or to https://esyouth-elcic.ca/ .
Email me to be involved! I would love to meet, include and hear about more Young Adults,
“Young Canadian Lutheran” YouTube Channel
What actually happened on Maundy Thursday? Imagine being the Chair of your church Council at 26! What does a Bishop even do? On this channel, I (Kristina) interview Young Adults about their REAL church and faith life, retell and investigate the church stories we’ve always heard, ask hard questions about church, and create space where we can worship and strengthen our faith together. We have so many questions about church and faith, and we’re going to keep asking. See: https://bit.ly/3etu6GN
**Here’s what’s happening for YOUTH (13-17)
Youth Hang Tuesdays 5-7pm EST
Sometimes, the best times in your life are just “chillin’ with your peeps”. That’s what this is. Come for the whole time, come for 5 minutes, come and go as you can, but come hang with us, check in with your friends, chat about faith, life, and play some games.
