Hickory – All are welcome on Thursday, June 24, at 7:00 p.m., to St. Aloysius Catholic Church’s lower level in Hickory, for Foothills Faith and Friendship Christian Young Adult Group’s “Spring Into Summer” meetup.

The social will include a short scripture study focused on changing seasons, free food and refreshments, and games.

The group has taken a sabbatical since early last year due to the Coronavirus so as to prevent spreading infections.

There will be a call-in virtual option available at 828-578-2732 for those who would like to participate but remain physically distant. Masks indoors are recommended, especially for those unvaccinated.

An optional “Dutch” dinner at adjacent Salsaritas will be at 6:30 p.m., before the church meet-up.

Church sponsors include St. Aloysius, Corinth Reformed Church, and The Episcopal Church of The Ascension.

Foothills Faith and Friendship’s mission is to encourage friendship and fellowship between young adults in western North Carolina through Christianity.

Says organizer Aaron Kohrs, “This group is a unique ministry based on the fellowship of serving each other through friendship. Western NC needs young adult groups and so this is truly come-as-you-are.”

The group welcomes all people and charges no entrance fee or membership dues.
