Welcome to our Young Adults Ministry

“My purpose is to incarnate my unique expression of Divine Love, to live fully in my incarnate humanity with clarity and keen awareness. I am to say yes each day to participating in Love’s dance and to mutually and reciprocally give to others the love I receive in the fellowship of that Knowing.” - Felicia Murrell

New York City can be a hard place to make and sustain meaningful community. The Young Adults seek to provide just that. We are a welcoming community, committed to being inclusive and supportive. We are actively engaged in fellowship, open dialogue, spiritual growth, social action and working with our community. St. Paul & St. Andrew offers many opportunities for Young Adults looking to be part of something. To learn more, contact Assistant Pastor, Andrea Steinkamp.

Inside our Young Adults Ministry

The second Wednesday of each month at 7:30pm we gather over Zoom with Young Adults connected to our community from as far away as Brazil and Colombia. Part of our time together is focused on one particular topic of a series, determined by the group. Series in the past have included Women in the Bible, Sermon on the Mount, Theology 101, Tricky Bits of the Bible, Mid-Faith Crisis, and book studies on Anne Lamott’s Traveling Mercies and The Book of Joy by Archbishop Desmond Tutu and His Holiness the Dalai Lama. It’s a rich time to learn and build relationships.

The fourth Sunday of each month, the Young Adults eat lunch together after worship service. Sometimes we go out; sometimes we eat in. Every time, it is a chance to reconnect and catch up with each other.

Throughout the year, and especially during the summer months, we take advantage of all the opportunities that abound in and around the city to explore together. Past events have included pottery making, rock climbing, attending professional sporting events, hiking, picnics in the park, outdoor movies, and dinner at Pier I Cafe. We also love hitting theater productions, poetry slams, dance performances, and concerts featuring members of our Young Adult community so we can cheer one another on!

It’s important to the Young Adult community that we participate in the broader congregational life and work of the church, too. Members of our ministry sing in the choir, lead worship, read the Scriptures, play an instrument during worship, teach Sunday School to the kids, help with the Youth Ministry, tutor on Wednesdays, volunteer with for our Miracle Mondays Resource Fair, serve on committees, and are very involved in every aspect of our life as a church. You are more than welcome to join us! For more information, contact Andrea Steinkamp.
