Find Belonging

Early adulthood is all about sorting through what we learned growing up and integrating it into rhythms of adult life. Our Young Adults ministry works to empower young adults to grow in their faith journey by taking ownership of it. To do this, we need a supportive community of both men and women centered around Christ. We seek to foster genuine relationships, encourage authenticity, and provide biblical wisdom for navigating adulthood.

Join our Young Adults Ministry at Woodcreek Church, where our goal is for every young adult to find belonging, cultivate their faith, and practice their faith in meaningful ways. We're more than just a group; we're a vibrant community eager to support each other through early adulthood's unique challenges and opportunities. Whether seeking a sense of community, eager to deepen your spiritual understanding, or looking for ways to live out your beliefs, our ministry is designed to meet you where you are. We provide a safe environment that encourages growth, connection, and authenticity by engaging community groups, mentorship programs, and events. There's a place for you, from our monthly All-YA meetings to various events throughout the year. Join us!

"I remember when I was in college someone challenged me with this: “Give Christ your 20’s and he will give you a life worth living.” That piece of advice set me on a trajectory that morphed my desires, built my community, and gave me a hope that nothing else in this world has been able to offer. If you are a YA my prayer is that regardless of where you are in your faith journey (maybe things are going great, maybe you're just barely hanging on to your childhood faith, or maybe you’re just now exploring Christianity for the first time) that you would give Christ your YA years. Take the step to be known by a community of people seeking to learn & practice the way of Jesus. Press in to know the Bible and live in the grace and freedom of God.” - Taylor Russell
