Carlisle’s Young Adult Programs
Young Adult Meetups
Fellowship with Christians and non-Christians alike is an important aspect of establishing a strong, connected, and inspired group of young adults in the church and the community, therefore gatherings and meetups are an important part of the culture at St. Paul Lutheran Church in Carlisle. Social meetups are typically scheduled throughout the year and can be found on the church calendar and in the church messenger. Our gatherings are open and welcoming to all including Christians and non-Christians, cis and non-cisgender individuals, and LGBTQ.
Pubs and Prayers
In the new year, we will be launching a social program to further develop relationships with those in and out of the church building. In effort to promote community and connection to each other, we feel that it is important to meet on a social level, so that we may better understand where anyone may be at in their life. Once a month, we will be meeting up at various microbreweries and wineries throughout the greater Carlisle area to enjoy much of the local flavor. Below are the just a few of the locations that we plan to visit:
- Molly Pitcher Brewery
- Desperate Times Brewery
- Harty Brewing Co.
- Midstate Distellery
We will update this event with dates and times as we draw closer to the new year.
Small Group Gatherings
Small groups of 2-4 families (some involving children and some young adults only) meet in homes on a weekly/monthly basis. We focus on strengthening the bond between the church and the family and as part of our organic approach to establish connections with our young adults and young families, we strive to meet them were they are most comfortable. We understand in many cases that young adults and young families lead very busy lives, so while a Sunday morning worship service may not be the most convenient, we work around those scheduled to coordinate times where we can all gather together, join in fellowship, enrich our soul’s with lessons based on God’s word, and build relationships together.
St. Paul Lutheran Church is launching a seminar program that provides opportunities for those within the church as well as the community to guide us in forming a better understanding of social justice issues to equip ourselves with the knowledge and resources to provide support when necessary. Check out our events calendar and our seminars page to see a list of upcoming seminars at St. Paul.
Communities around the world are in desperate need for helping hands now more than ever before. It is important to recognize the call for service in a local and global setting. We strive as a church to not only help in our immediate community, but to also give back to areas around the world.
St. Paul’s Young Adult and Young Family Ministry Group offers up their service to many organizations in and around the Carlisle area. If you wish to participate with us, contact us at your earliest convenience.
Carlisle, PA is a thriving community that is also home to an affluent liberal arts college, world renowned youth ballet program, and Army War college. The diversity of people’s cultural and socioeconomic backgrounds makes our community unique, but also presents numerous challenges.
To help unify the vast difference in socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, we as community members and educators seek to strengthen Carlisle, and its residents, by providing an ongoing initiative that ties students, children, families, and individuals together to support the development, creation, and upkeep of public art.
