Young Adults

Mariners YA exists to inspire young adults to follow Jesus and fearlessly change the world. This ministry is designed for twenty-somethings and college students to have a space to worship and find community on a weekly basis. So if you’re a young adult between 18-29 come join us!

Thursday Nights

Mariners YA is the place to be on Thursday night. Every week we gather in The Garage (Youth Building Room 1) at 7p for worship, a relevant message for our young adult years, and an after party!


We don’t just want you to worship and have community on Thursdays, so on Sundays we all sit together on the far left side of the Worship Center at the 11:30a service.

College Lunches

College Students! We have a special treat for you. Most Sundays during the school year we will be providing a home-cooked meal for you after service, because food and friends are an unbeatable combo!

Life Groups

Community is more than just seeing people every once in a while… it’s doing life together! The best way to find community is to get in a Life Group. Life Groups meet throughout the week to study and learn how to apply God’s Word in our lives.

If you have not yet been through Rooted, your first step is to go through Rooted. To find a group or register for Rooted, click the button above!

Who can come to Mariners Young Adults?

Mariners YA is designed for anyone 18-29.


What can I expect on a Thursday Night?

Thursday Nights are the highlight of our week! If you come on a thursday, you’ll get to experience a worship set from our talented YA team and a message from Joel or one of our other communicators. When service ends, that doesn’t mean the party stops! After we close, feel free to stick around – we’ll periodically have fun things planned in the lobby or head to a nearby spot for late night dinner.


What should I bring?

You don’t need to bring anything on Thursday nights, but a Bible and a notebook are always helpful. If you don’t have a Bible, that’s okay – the verses will be on the screen – but let us know and we’d love to get you one. Other than that, all we want is you!


Will childcare be available?

If you have kiddos, unfortunately we do not have a team to care for them during service, but our Kids Team would love to help them engage their faith at one of our Saturday or Sunday services!


Can I volunteer?

Absolutely! Our team of volunteers is incredible, and we’re always looking for talented people to join the crew. Email Joel Haywood at [email protected] or stop by our Connections Table on a Thursday.
