The 20s Ministry has two primary elements: weekly Community Groups and a monthly gathering, called 20s Night.
20s Community Groups are a great place for 20s to gather in meaningful community to study God's Word, have fun together, and challenge each other to become more like Jesus. We like to call it a place to belong and grow, so come as you are! The 20s Community Groups love to put on social events outside of the weekly meeting time as well, so you can expect to form fast friendships. There are nearly 20 of these groups, and they all love to have new people connect, so we hope to see you soon!
20s Night is a connection event for any and all 20s that meets monthly, September through May. We gather each month on a Friday night for dinner, worship, teaching or serving, and games. See below for more info.
20s Summer Events are casual, social gatherings at various locations in the area for fellowship and fun. Check out all the details for our 20s summer events below.
