Your twenties and thirties are formational, scary, fun, and full of surprises. The Young Adult Ministry is here to walk with you and be a flexible space for support and encouragement. We provide several educational opportunities including book studies, Bible groups, and weekly Theology on Tap gatherings during the summer.

Sunday school: 20/20

Room 305, Jones Building (9:40 - 10:40 AM)

20/20 is returning after a pandemic hiatus!  Through leader-facilitated discussions each week, we consider what it means to be a Christian in our often challenging, contemporary world. Discussion  leaders will be drawn from class members. We will begin with consideration of some books, and see where that leads us. Open to all, drop-ins welcome! 

January: Being Disciples: Essentials of the Christian Life by Rowan Williams

February: Revelation for Everyone by N.T. Wright
