YOUNG ADULTS

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—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. We hope you will join us to find relational refreshment and rich study of Scripture through Sunday worship, social gatherings, and spiritual rhythms. If you'd like to know more about who we are or to join our weekly email list, contact youngadultsfpchouston@gmail.com.

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.

Small Groups

If you are interested in joining a young adult-specific small group community, please email youngadultsfpchouston@gmail.com and include Catie Smith, our Director of Discipleship, at csmith@fpchouston.org. We'll get you connected!

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 Catie Smith, Director of Discipleship, at csmith@fpchouston.org. 

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.
