We are excited to have so many members in their 20s, 30s, and 40s at SSUMC. We are working on revamping some of our young adult ministries, and would love to hear what you are interested in! Please contact Jen Kidwell at [email protected] if you have questions about current ministries, or thoughts about new ministries. For now, we offer:

Second Sunday Outings after Church

On the second Sundays of the month, join with other young adults to go out for coffee or lunch after both the 9:30 and 11 services. This is a great way to meet some new folks!

Monthly events

We design these events to appeal to young adults with and without young children.

  • Sometime March 31 – April 2 – Interfaith potluck with young adults from the Imaam Center
  • April 22 – hiking at Great Falls
  • May 21 – Minor League Baseball Game (2pm)


Young Adult Small Group

Do you need some time to hang out with peers in your neighborhood? Are you juggling professional life and personal life? Are you missing some time explore questions of faith and meaning with supportive friends? This group will be designed to focus on fellowship and community, with some thoughtful discussion topics provided. No preparation required. We meet on Friday evenings from 7-8:30pm at Kaldi’s Social House in Silver Spring. Contact Jen to express interest.

Trivia night

After a long day, what’s more fun than kicking back with friends while agonizing over trivia questions? Nothing. Nothing is more fun than that. If you agree, join with other future Jeopardy champs and meet up for trivia at one of our local Downtown Silver Spring trivia establishments. We meet at Denizen’s at 8pm on the first Tuesday of the month, and at the Urban Winery at 7pm on the second Wednesday. Contact Jen to be added to the email list.
