Welcome to faith formation for young adults. We invite people from all denominations, all backgrounds, all ethnicities, and all sexualities to join us as we strive to walk together on a spiritual path that brings us closer to God. Our words and worship draw from the most ancient hearts of Christianity, while at the same time they are renewed by our modern minds. Church should not be a place where you leave your questions at the door; bring your doubts, your fears, your hopes, your joys – bring everything God has made you to be.
Our Young Adult Ministry provides several programs generally aimed at the 20’s – 30’s age group, designed to be fun, thought-provoking and spiritually inspiring. To follow what we’ve got going on, view the Episcopal Young Adults of Western Washington Facebook page.
“A Holy Waste of Time” Retreat
Young Adults (ages 18 – 35) are invited to join us for our popular “A Holy Waste of Time” self-discovery retreat, held at the end of summer at St. Andrew’s House, a beautiful lodge on the Hood Canal owned by the Diocese of Olympia. Enjoy time with others or by yourself, kayaking and swimming the beautiful waters of the canal, hiking under the forest canopy, reading in the lodge, and sunning on the deck. All meals are included. Single/couple/family bedrooms available.
The 2020 weekend will be held Friday, August 14 – Sunday, August 16.
Curious about the traditions, histories and flavors of other churches in our diocese?
