Young Adults

Don’t let anyone think less of you because you are young. Be an example to all believers in what you say, in the way you live, in your love, your faith, and your purity.   –1 Timothy 4:12

Whatever you're doing as you start your adult life, God wants to be a part of it. Whether it's going to school, working, or joining the military, #Adulting can be challenging. Make the transition to a young professional a little easier by joining other like-minded young persons and journey together.

Meet Matt

Matt, and his wife, Anne Claire, are from Greenville, AL. In 2017, he earned his bachelor from Auburn University (WAR EAGLE!) and in 2020, his Masters from Candler School of Theology. Matt's so excited to be living at the beach. He loves to play music (drums, guitar, and piano), play tennis and golf, and plans to add paddleboarding to his list of activities soon.

Have questions? Pastor Matt can answer them for you. If you're ready to sign up for a group, you can do that in this form as well.

The young adult ministry at Shalimar UMC is for those ages 18 -35. We hope to create a place where you feel welcomed, heard, and reenergized. In whatever stage of life, you find yourself in, we will have an opportunity for you to find community, be surrounded and supported by others, and walk through life with others. We will have small group Bible study and discussion, worship nights, fun activities and trips, as well as opportunities to make a difference in our community. We hope you will come and be a part of.

Every 2nd Monday night we will meet from 7-8 at Cross Corner for a time of worship. We will have music led by other young adults from our group and Pastor Matt will share a lesson with us. We will have food and activities on this night and provide an avenue to invite new friends to join us and create a more casual environment.
United are the times that we will be out in the community either united together having fun or united in service to our community. From Taco Tuesday’s to boat days, and from helping our church to helping in the community we will find ways to be active and United around Shalimar.
