Young Adults (18-early 30s)

Young Adults at Grace

The Young Adults ministry of Grace is all about community. We are eager to get everyone age 18-early 30’s plugged into Christ-centered relationships that open new doors of engagement here at Grace. We see our interest groups, classes and events as entry points into community and mission. Through these programs, we want you to be known by our broader church community. Yes, some of our groups may include Bible studies, worship, or service, but our ultimate aim is connection.

Our Toronto Pilgrimage is one of a kind.

​Short-term Trips

Throughout the year, Grace Church offers short-term trips specifically designed for Young Adults. Young Adult teams visit partner ministries and aid in the work they are doing in places like New York City and Toronto. These trips are just one more way disciples are being launched into God’s mission. Consider joining a trip, your life will never be the same. Visit our Short-term Trips page form more information.
