Who We Are

The Commons is a gathering of young adults (20-somethings) at Grace Fellowship who seek to live Jesus-centered lives in their Young Adult years. We pursue Christ together through weekly small groups and summer gatherings.

We get a lot of questions. Check out the FAQ's below. Didn't find your answer? Contact us on Instagram or click the "Get in Touch" button above.

Am I a Young Adult?
  • Just for fun, ask yourself how you define the term Young Adult (YA)? Obviously there can be a lot of confusion about who is actually considered a YA and when  someone becomes a “Normal Adult.” At The Commons we have defined a YA as someone aged 18-30. However, stage-of-life is  a more accurate indicator of someone’s YA status.
  • The Commons is dedicated to bridging the “Life Gap” between those on the upper and lower ends of their YA years. Many stages of life are represented at The Commons: recent high school grads, college students, young marrieds, singles, and young professionals, and they all call The Commons their ministry. We view this as an opportunity for YA’s to walk side-by-side as they pursue living a Jesus-centered life in their YA years.
So what about High School Grads?

High School seniors are encouraged to join The Commons the summer after they graduate high school. For many students, the summer before they start college or a career can be a very stressful season. We hope their connection to The Commons helps build their biblical understanding of life and provides them the relationships they need to crush their transition into adulthood!

What do you do at these "Gatherings"?

Our gatherings are designed to form connections around the person of Jesus. You can expect to drink some coffee, make new friends, worship, and hear biblical teachings on relevant topics. However, each location looks a bit different so select your location for more details. (Check out Locations above.)

Where do I sign-up?

No need to sign-up! Just show up on a Tuesday night, and we will be so happy to see you. Of course, if you would like to reach out to someone before you show up, feel free to email thecommons@gracefellowship.cc.

What about Childcare?

The Commons does not provide childcare at our gatherings or group nights. This is on purpose! If you are married with kids, chances are you are no longer a “Young Adult” (bummer right?). Our group’s team would be happy to help you find the right group environment for you. CLICK HERE to get help finding a group!
