20s & 30s Ministry

The 20s & 30s ministry at St. John the Divine is a growing group of young adults who gather together to share life in Christ. We have a variety of gatherings from weekly dinners and small group time, to monthly happy hours and restaurant tours. Join us. We'd love to meet you!

  • Dinners and Gatherings: Want to plug into a faith community but not sure you have time for a weekly small group? Pencil in the first Friday of every month for our "First Friday Dinner" at a local Houston restaurant. 
  • Bible Studies and Small Groups: Weekly Bible studies and small groups are a great place to learn more about God, faith, and the Bible. We have groups on Tuesdays at different homes in Houston, plus a women's group on Mondays.
  • Candlelight Compline: Once a month on the Third Thursday of the month the Young Adults host a contemplative prayer service in the Chapel featuring Americana-style hymns and a short homily. Join us for this Candlelight Compline service, usually followed by drinks at the nearby Kirby Ice House.
  • Opportunities to Serve: Service matters to us! Once a month on a Saturday, join us to volunteer at a local Houston organization. Sign up here.
