What is Young Adults?

Highland Young Adults provides a place for anyone 18 to 35 years old to CONNECT through gospel-centered relationships, to GROW in their relationship with Jesus Christ, and to GO by serving the church and their community. 

What to expect

This is a casual setting where we can build authentic community, so feel free to wear what is comfortable for you. People start gathering as early as 6:00PM to grab coffee. The lesson begins at 6:30PM with a Bible-centered teaching time. At 7:20PM, we move into small groups to discuss how to apply the teaching to our lives. Our leaders intentionally invest in each person in their group and often meet outside of Monday nights for discipleship and mentorship.

Summer Schedule

For the Summer, YA will meet on two separate nights in the Wausau Café Room, working through the same series from the book of Judges. Our 23-35-year-olds will meet on Monday nights, and our College Ministry (18-22-year-olds) will meet on Wednesday nights. 

Current Series 

Painful Patterns

This Summer, we are diving into the book of Judges, where we will see the painful patterns repeated by the Israelites. We might be surprised how often we see the same spiral reflected in our own lives. We have a lot to learn from Judges!

3rd monday worship

Every 3rd Monday of the month, we take a break from our normal routine for a special worship service designed specifically for young adults. The service begins at 6:30pm and lasts one hour. Each service contains vibrant worship, relevant teaching, and great opportunities  for cultivating deeper relationships with others.
