Young Adults

Young Adult Ministry

What makes a “young adult?”

This group is for those between high school graduation and their mid-thirties.

Sunday School 

Join us for a casual Sunday school experience. No curriculum, no "teacher," no stuffy atmosphere. Simply join us for coffee, conversation, and episode of a video series! As we gather, we are currently watching the video series called The Way by Adam Hamilton through March; in April and May, a reading guide will be provided in the young adult room for Sunday School. If you can't come one week, no worries - this is truly a laid back experience for young adults to connect between services on Sundays.


Monthly In-Person Gatherings

Monthly in-person gatherings at rotating locations and/or in our Young Adult room at the church, located in the rear/basement entrance. 


Seasonal Video Series

Our program offers short, online videos for guided Bible study. These videos are approx. 10 minutes or less, and are found on our YouTube Channel (Dandridge First UMC) under the Young Adult playlist. Because they are short in nature, they're perfect to watch in between other work, household, or community tasks. They can also be listened to if you're on the go. Their short nature, but hopefully contain some inspiration as you seek to grow your faith as you grow into adulthood.

Mission + Outreach 

Our group tries to do two mission projects a year - one in the spring and one in the fall.

For spring 2024, we are collecting diapers for a local family-planning resource center, Life Outreach Center, in our county, which offers free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, counseling, parenting classes, and necessary supplies to mothers & expectant mothers in our community. Diapers will be collected between 2/27/2024 and 3/8/2024, with the closing day including our mission potluck - where members gather together on 3/8 at 7:15 PM for a potluck dinner & to finish our diaper collection.

We also often try to support our church's blessing box.
