Young Adults


We believe followers of Christ are called to move toward one another in loving, encouraging relationship. We hope you will join us to find relational refreshment and rich study of Scripture through our upcoming events and small groups. If you'd like to know more about who we are or to join our weekly email list, please contact Abigail MacDougall at amacdougall@fpchouston.org. For information regarding Sunday morning worship or to save a seat, click here. Please also visit our Discipleship Page to access supplemental devotional material, prayer tools, and more encouragement during this new rhythm of life.

The young adult community at FPC exists to carry and embody the good news about Jesus's resurrection to Houston and the world. We practice rhythms of spiritual growth, praise our Creator, and pursue the good of our city together. The goal of our core practices—personal and corporate prayer, Scripture study, worship, and service—is to cultivate a unique community of people who imitate our Savior and witness to His deep love in and for the world. All this is lived out of an identity rooted in the completed work of Christ on our behalf. We belong to Jesus Christ, and in that freedom, we live life with God for the world.

Our group, ages 20s-30s, includes a variety of life stages ranging from singles, married, those with young kids, young professionals, college and graduate students. We all come together as a part of God's church with shared questions. What does it mean to follow Jesus in this stage of life? How does my vocation and field of study fit into God's larger redemptive plan? How can we cultivate a community of rest in Jesus in a world driven by relentless pursuit of achievement? What does genuine Christian community—living on mission in our unique place and cultural moment—look like?

We hope you'll join us as we walk together in this stage of life, seeking to be faithful to God as we faithfully participate in the larger church body at FPC.

Upcoming Events

Sunday Mornings | 10:45 AM

We will still be worshipping with our entire church body in person or via live stream on Sunday mornings at 10:45 AM (contemporary and traditional services in the Grand Hall and Sanctuary, respectively). Please visit our FPC Reopening and Save A Seat pages for the latest details on reserving a seat! We would love to see you in worship.

The Table | Young Adult Sunday School | Sundays at 9:15 AM | Main Street Garden

This life is all about Jesus, and we want to know Him and love Him through His Word. This season more than ever, we want our eyes focused on our true Hope, the sovereign King of Kings. What does it mean that Jesus is Messiah? How did His first followers (and enemies) respond to this claim? And how are we called to live in light of this today? Join us for a study of the Gospel of Mark where we'll witness the earthly ministry of our Savior and contemplate what it means to live lives bearing His image, the image of God Himself, as we look to His return. Jesus is more beautiful than any other, and He offers us a life more beautiful than anything the world can offer. So let's seek to deeply know Him together.

YA Happy Hour | April 29 | 6 PM | West Alabama Ice House

Come connect with new young adults and catch up with old friends. This is a perfect time to gather with friends from other small groups over drinks! RSVP here.

Spring Retreat | May 21-22 | Anahuac Bay, TX

We're retreating to the bay for a Spring retreat and love-overdue reunion. We'll enjoy food, fellowship, worship, play-time outdoors, drinks and conversation around the fire, grilling out, and quiet time out of the city. See more information and sign up for limited spots here.

Small Groups

If you are interested in joining a small group, please click here to see a list of churchwide open groups. If you would like to talk to someone about young adult-specific Small Groups and Discipleship Groups, please email Abigail MacDougall.

Discipleship Groups

D-Groups are gender-specific groups of 3-4 people who commit to meet regularly to support, encourage, and offer accountability to one another. Beyond just Bible study in a flexible small group, D-Groups seek to form an intimate, covenant community where believers can deeply and consistently walk beside one another in joy and trial, in practicing spiritual disciplines, and in confession, in order to spur one another on to bear more spiritual fruit in living in communion with God. If you are interested in learning more about growth and connection through D-Groups, please contact Abigail MacDougall

Community Needs

We are also pursuing the good of others in our community and city in ways that we can in this time. Please let us know if you'd like to be added to a list of people who are ready to help as needs come in. For more information specifically on our local and community service efforts (and ways to be served), visit our Ongoing Mission Partnerships page.

Prayer Needs

We want to pray for you! If you have any needs in this season, please fill out our request form, and we will bring your petitions and praises to the Lord. We would love to pray for you by name, but you are welcome to submit requests anonymously as well. All submissions are confidential and only shared with young adult staff for the purpose of prayer.
