|CIA Young Adult Group Forming|
Christians In Action is weekly group that meets Sundays at 5pm in the Library for fellowship, expansion of faith, and outreach for those 19 years and older. We encourage full discussions of life situations and how it pertains to personal faith beliefs while expanding our ability to accept, understand, and grow from one another. We are committed to outreach for the community, our future CIA members, and our congregation. We are not a mandatory group and you do not need to be a member of the church to be a CIA member. Please come as you are, when you can, with whoever you want. Our group is about having a safe haven for those who are stationed here, home for the summer, or call Niceville home. If you have any questions please email STPLCIA14@gmail.com
