I'm New PARKING
Young Adults

SEASONAL UPDATE

Though we are limiting in-person gatherings due to seasonal restrictions, we believe the church is called to move toward one another in loving, encouraging relationship. We hope you will join us to find relational stability and rich study of Scripture during this changing season through our upcoming events below or through a small group. 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 our reopening of Sunday morning worship or to save a seat, click here. And please 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, and college and graduate students. We all come together as a part of God's church at FPC 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 trust and 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 Livestream

We will still be worshipping with our entire church body via livestream on Sunday mornings or in-person every Sunday at 10:45 AM (traditional service) and 5 PM (contemporary service). Both services are open on campus and held in the sanctuary. For those interested in in-person worship, please visit our reopening and worship pages for the latest details on reserving a seat! We would love to see you in worship.

New Year Happy Hour

Come connect with new young adults and reunite with old friends after the holidays. This is a perfect time to gather with friends from other small groups over drinks as we kick off the new year!

The Message of Messiah | A Study of the Gospel of Mark

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. We'll start the semester on Zoom and hope to transition to meeting outdoors. Join the meeting after lunch on Sundays at 2 PM (except Picnic in the Park Sundays) between services here.

Annual Galentine's Day | Pancakes & PJ's

We're getting the girls together for our annual Valentine's ladies night! Come for pancakes (and other treats) in your pj's for some sister time. We'll meet at Madi Baldwin's home on Friday, February 12, at 7 PM. Please RSVP here, as capacity will be limited. Masks are welcome but not required.

Picnic + Praise in the Park

Bring your afternoon coffee and join us for fellowship and a liturgy on Sunday each month at the Menil Park. We'll bring our own picnics and blankets and enjoy conversation, music, and prayer together to usher in the new week. This Spring, we'll be meeting February 21st, March 21st, April 18th, and May 16th. Join our weekly email list for location or date changes due to weather.

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 at amacdougall@fpchouston.org.

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

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), see our ongoing mission partnerships page here.

PRAYER NEeds

We want to pray for you! If you have any needs in this season, please fill out our request form here, and we will be bringing 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.
