Canopy

 

When?  Thursdays at 7:00 PM, starting July 14

Where?  Sometimes we meet at a local Bar. Other times we are at someone’s house! Find us on Facebook to learn more.

What is Canopy? Canopy is a gathering place at Oak Lawn UMC for young adults who are seeking answers, asking questions, and yearning for respite. Like how Canopies in rainforests are places where energy from the sun is gathered and refuge is found, Canopy is a place to unplug from the stress of life to engage in life-giving conversation about our faith and passion while relaxing, meeting new friends, and learning more about each other and God.
