Young Adults


Alliance Young Adults (AYA) exists for 18-25 year olds. Our whole lives are a journey, but these years, in particular, can involve college, career, rent, and relationships–just to name a few. And we're here for it all. We’re here for your journey.

Join us Sunday evenings, 6:15-8:15 p.m., at the Appleton campus. Find a place to become and belong.


Alliance Young Adults is our young adults' ministry for people ages 18-25. Transitioning into adulthood is a whirlwind, and so many of us are on different journeys. We exist to journey with people through life stages, challenges, and spiritual growth. Life is messy and confusing, but we know Jesus is our constant companion, so we create a community that always points each other to Him.

Visit us in Appleton on Sundays, 6:15 - 8:15 p.m., on the West side.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you offer small groups?

Our church runs small groups outside of AYA that we also encourage young adults to check out, such as Men’s Frat, Women’s Bible studies, and Mini Churches. These all have groups with a young adult emphasis, as well as groups for other ages.

Does AYA accommodate people with special needs?

God made us for a relationship with Him and others. This includes our young adults with special needs. To find out if the Young Adults Special Needs Ministry would be a suitable fit, fill out this contact form.

How can I serve in AYA?

Join our serving team! You can still attend AYA as usual while having a few extra serving responsibilities during the night. Contact our AYA Volunteer Coordinator, Helena, at [email protected] to connect.

What does a typical night of AYA look like?

Doors on the West side open at 6:15 p.m. to get checked in and hang out. Worship & message begin at 6:30 p.m. At 7:30 p.m., we have a time of community & connection that includes activities and food. The night wraps up around 8:15 p.m.

Special Needs

God made us for a relationship with Him and others. This includes our young adults with special needs. During Alliance Young Adults on Sunday nights, young adults with special needs are partnered with peers that attend Alliance Young Adults with them. The peer partnerships allow for young adults to be supported and to experience the environment at their level.
