Young Adults

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.

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.

She Reads Truth Bible Series

Beginning the first Wednesday after Ash Wednesday (February 21), we will be launching our young adult life groups in collaboration with St. John’s Episcopal Church in the square. To help establish a YA faith community in Carlisle, we are partnering with local churches to build a support system that focuses on faith development and enrichment. Throughout our program, we are planning to use the She Reads Truth series. For our first study, we will be working with their 2018 Lenten guide.

We encourage YA members of St. Paul and their friends to participate with us. We will be meeting every Wednesday, but if you can’t join us for every meeting, no worries, just follow along with the study guide join us the next time you are available. We will also be posting reflection notes in the weekly messenger as well as on Facebook and right here on our website. Please continue to check out the messenger as we develop our plans accordingly. And feel free to contact Laura and Greg by email at with any questions.


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.

Color Carlisle: A Public Art Initiative

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.
