Young Adults

Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.  1 Tim 4:12 NLT

We desire that all 20 and 30-somethings find their passionate purpose within Christ's love for them. Negotiating the early years of adulthood can be challenging and confusing. We're here to work out life and faith in community so together we can realize and live out with confidence the hope to which we have each been called. 

Please join us!

We’ll worship together, explore various spiritual disciplines and resources, and have lots of honest conversations about the Bible and the world we live in. Join us anytime!
