Axis is geared toward those ages 18 to 20- something, whether in college or early career, single or married. Ministry aspects include Life Groups, Converge nights, and other events.
On the first Sunday of each month, Axis and other area college ministries (when they come) “Converge” at Maywood for food, games (board/gym), and fun. Periodically, we will come together for a night of worship through singing. Converge starts at 6pm and usually lasts until about 9:00. Check out the Converge Facebook page to find out what is coming up!
We regularly offer events to help build relationships with each other through hanging out or serving. Watch for details about upcoming events on our Facebook page, the weekly church program, or on this page.
NOTE: Converge meetings are in the Cafe' at Maywood - unless otherwise indicated

1) Community - centered around Christian relationships
2) Ministry - centered around a certain affinity
