The Young Adult ministry at SFN is for anyone post high school and older (we usually say age 18 to 30 something.) That is a big range!
You may be wondering what a freshly graduated 18 year old has in common with a 27 year old who has a career and a kid. Believe it or not you are connected by one thing: transition. That is the factor that makes the time in life called “young adulthood” different from the rest. You are constantly facing transition after transition. First it is life out of high school and becoming self-sufficient. Maybe you move to a new city and go through different jobs. Maybe you go to college. Maybe you begin dating, get married and shortly after, have kids. Transition after transition marks this season of our lives.
There is one constant, God’s hand in our life guiding us through this turbulent time.
Even though there is a big age and experience gap between young adults, you can still connect with Young Adults for worship nights, hiking trips, and campfires and have a great time. It is important to interact with people who are in the same specific phase of life that you are in.
That is why a large part of Young Adults is groups. There are two different types of groups; Growth Groups are focused on a specific topic or series and meets for a set amount of weeks. Life Groups are the people who are in your corner fighting for you and praying for you week after week. By focusing on groups, Young Adults are able to divide up the big age range so that you can have conversations with people that are more relevant to your phase in life.
