Young Adults

Young Adults

Here at Manchester, we know that different age groups have different needs.  Our young adult ministries provide opportunities to connect to individuals between the ages of 18 and 40.   

No matter where you are on your faith journey, life path, or location in life, you are welcome here. Some of us are college-aged, some are young singles, and some are part of young families. In fact, many of us fall into more than one of these categories.  We live across the St. Louis area and together we have fun, laugh, cry and support each other in this journey of life.  

We believe that life is better when we’re connected with other people in community. These experiences are fun, safe, encouraging and located across the St. Louis area. No matter who you are, there is room for you at the table. 

The Young Adult Ministry offers a variety of events, learning opportunities, and campaigns throughout the year. Please check back on this website frequently for more upcoming young adult events, classes and more!
