Young Adults

Put on your new nature, and be renewed as you learn to know your Creator and become like him.

Colossians 3:10

WLYA is a community of 18-30 year olds that love Jesus and desire to grow deeper in their faith. We pursue this growth through passionate worship, in-depth study of the Bible and theology, and intentional times of fellowship. We believe that we were never meant to do this life alone, and so we want to personally invite you to join us as we gather together. Here at WLYA, we exist to make all things new: to pursue the magnificent plan that God has for our future, and become better than before as we learn to be more like Jesus.

Summer Schedule

Wednesdays 7:30pm-9:00pm

On the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month, we will be gathering together at West Lawn for a book-study through “Hearing God” by pastor and teacher at Hillsong NYC, Nathan Finochio. Come join us as we learn to “Eliminate myths and encounter meaning” when hearing the voice of God in our lives.

We look forward to being able to worship together soon at our 11:10 worship service in the West Lawn Community Center. Stay tuned

Allison Gieringer

Director of Young Adults
Allison recently moved back to PA after spending 5 years in Manhattan, NYC, leading worship for a church-plant, and finishing her Bachelor’s degree at NYACK College and Theological Seminary. When Allison isn’t preaching at a young adult event, she's writing music, drinking coffee, going-live on our Instagram or leading worship with Bobby for Sunday services. She can’t wait to get you plugged-in with our ministry here at West Lawn!

Bobby Rutherford

Worship Leader
Bobby moved to the Allentown area from the Poconos to pursue Jazz Piano and Recording Engineering at Kutztown University. He is the Worship Leader along side Allison and produces videos and graphics for the church. In his free time, Bobby enjoys writing music, taking photos, finding the best latte around, and playing tennis.
