Monday Morning Bible Study

In 1844, 22 year-old George Williams, founded the first Young Men’s Christian Association (YMCA), a refuge of Bible study and prayer for young men seeking escape from the hazards of life on the streets of London.

The Staunton Y carries on the tradition of non-denominational Bible study that is free and open to the public every Monday morning at 9:00am in the multi-Purpose Room. Bring your Bible and a friend. This hour-long study is led by YMCA Volunteer Chaplain Allen Jones.
