The 20s/30s group at St. Columba’s welcomes all who seek a community of Christian fellowship through which to engage faith and service in light of the Gospel. We come from a range of backgrounds and interests—from those just starting out and juggling bills, rent, food, work and play in our early 20s, to those of us in our late 30s (who may still be figuring all of those things out)—single, engaged, divorced, partners and couples. Called from worship to love and serve God and our neighbor, we gather for fellowship, spiritual formation and service to God’s people.

What's new?

We are excited to be refashioning this ministry by joining the "Light the Fire!" initiative currently being undertaken by the entire parish as we seek to be active in service and to live into our identity as St. Columbans. Our seminarian, Nicholas Roosevelt, and parishioners Lisa Fadden and Dale Nelson are co-leading the SPARK group and 20s/30s ministry. Join us as we together become more open to the work God is already doing among us, in us and through us. May God’s peace be with you.
