Young Adult Ministry

Young adults at baseball gameWe are open, welcoming, and fun. We share prayer, worship, and mission activities. Our ages range from early 20s to 40 years old. Among us are parents of young children, active community volunteers, and degree seekers. Within the congregation, we serve a variety of roles: youth counselors, staff members, committee chairs, KidzTown volunteers. We are the Young Adults of Embry Hills, a vibrant, growing community engaged in a variety of small groups and activities with spiritual, social, and service focuses. Working with the pastor, we are continually creating new programs, worship opportunities, Bible Studies, and other events involving young adults and beyond.

Sunday School Classes

Embry Hills offers two Sunday morning classes for young adults. Although the official start of Sunday School at Embry Hills is 9:45, these classes typically get started closer to 10:00. If you have children, this gives you time to drop them off in the nursery or their own Sunday School classes at 9:45, and then grab a cup of coffee in the lobby before coming to a Young Adult class.

The FOUNDATIONS class is a lively and energetic group eager to discuss the theological and Biblical implications of current events and what it means to be a Christian, a parent, a community member and a responsible and caring adult in this modern society.
FOUNDATIONS meet in Room 207

The COMMITTED Class is a newly formed group of young adults interested in discussing social issues as they pertain to faith, the meaning of being a Christian in the modern world, and the Bible. Once a month, we meet at a restaurant for fun, fellowship, and faith. We welcome any and all to join us in Sunday School and out for dinner.

More Ways to Get Involved

Pet Blessing[dropcap]W[/dropcap]e are active in our church and community in a variety of ways. Currently, the Committed Class is developing opportunities to volunteer in the community, including places like Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. You are welcome to participate in any of the opportunities available:

John Wesley’s Holy Pub, a monthly gathering modeled after John and Charles Wesley’s Holy Club at Lincoln College at Oxford, formed in 1729. It was in the Holy Club where Methodist theology and ideals of helping the poor emerged. In this spirit of blending theology and service that the young adults of Embry Hills UMC gather for fellowship, discussion, and planning future events and service opportunities. This monthly dinner at a local restaurant is a great way to de-stress, have fun, and enjoy interesting conversations with people of a similar age.

Blessing of the Animals, sponsored annually by the Young Adult Ministry. Church and community members bring their pets for a blessing from our ministerial staff and enjoy an afternoon of fellowship on the church lawn. We also take donations of pet food to deliver to shelters.

We are always looking for new activities to participate and grow in while serving God. Please email embryhillsyoungadults@gmail.com if you have any new ideas, questions, or comments regarding the young adult program.

We hope you will join us!
