Young Adult Ministry

Connecting Young Adults shaped by community, questioning, and service

Our ministry creates brave space for young adults in their 20’s-mid 30’s to deepen through faith through study, conversation, service, and gatherings that build community. Whether you have called Cincinnati your home all your life or are new to the area, we want to connect with you! 

If you are a person who is working to lean into the ideas that God’s abundant grace is for everyone – community is foundational – social justice is integral to a life of faith – LGBTQ+ people are beloved – Black Lives Matter – you can’t love God without loving others – climate change is real – faith and doubt are not incompatible – this group might be for you!

Current Study

Brews and Making Sense of the Bible

at Bean and Barley

Mondays from 7:00p-8:30p

Start your week off enjoying a beautiful spring evening with your favorite beverage and meaningful conversation with other young adults. On Mondays April 15th through May 20th meet at the downstairs patio of Beans and Barley (Madison Rd.) from 7:00p-8:30p for the upcoming study, Brews and Making Sense of the Bible.

By considering real questions people frequently ask about the Bible it is an opportunity for deeper appreciation of the Bible so that we might hear God speak through it and find its words to be life-changing and life-giving. We will utilize Amplify media (think Netflix for Christian) and encourage people to watch the 10-minute video before we gather on Monday. Each week will feature a different topic about the Bible so each week stands on its own – come when you can.

Study Schedule 

April 15 – Making Sense of the Old Testament
April 22 – Making Sense of the New Testament 
April 29 – Questions about the Nature of Scripture 
May 6 – The Bible and Science
May 13 – Violence, Suffering, and Other Troubling Issues 
May 20 – Wrestling with Issues of Sexuality and Relationships
