The Young Adult Ministry of Manchester United Methodist Church provides opportunities for young adults (ages 18-30) in the St. Louis area to grow their faith in the Triune God through fellowship, service, and study, no matter where they are in their faith development. We are also continuously reaching out to our members who are away at college to keep them connected to our group, Manchester United Methodist Church, and the larger body of Christ.
We come from all walks of life and are excited to welcome the challenge, lessons, and grace that come from the diversity we encounter together. We gather both inside and outside the walls of Manchester United Methodist Church, searching for God in all spaces, following Jesus to all areas, and being inspired by the Holy Spirit in all we attempt. As we transition from one life phase to the next, we endeavor to support each other and to continually seek God as we grow in our faith and our calling as individuals and as a community.
We aim to affirm, celebrate, and welcome with Christian hospitality persons of any sexual orientation, gender identity, sex, race, ethnicity, marital or family status, economic situation, educational level, mental and/or physical ability, and persons of all other identities to participate in mission and ministry without exclusion. We are an official Reconciling Community of the United Methodist Church. *
We strive to do justice and love kindness in the world, as well as in our mission and ministry, while we work towards loving our neighbor as we love ourselves. We seek to be life affirming as we walk our path together, becoming better disciples for the Kin-dom of God, by the grace of the Triune God.
