The Current

Current n. (kûr'ənt):  a powerful flow from one point to another. 

The current is our young adult gathering that takes place on the 1stFriday of every month from 7:30pm - 10pm in the Eurasia cafe. 

Our time together features real relationships, relevant conversations, biblical topics of discussion, acoustic worship, and really good coffee.  This is a great place to meet new people and develop relationships.  Everyone is encouraged to bring something to snack on that goes with our creative food theme for that night.  

 


Eurasia Cafe

Eurasia cafe is a young adult run cafe at our Calvary Temple Wayne location that raises money for missions endeavors.  We believe in coffee with a cause - which is why the coffee that we brew is purchased from an organization that fights for causes like ending human trafficking, bringing clean water to villages in other countries, and meeting the practical needs of people around the world.  All profits that are brought in from the cafe are poured back into missions projects sponsored by our local church both here in the us and around the world.


YA Events
