Young Adults

Let’s face it, building community in the Twin Cities can be a little daunting. Bethlehem’s Young Adult Ministry is a welcoming group of 20–30-somethings seeking authentic friendships, rewarding work, and nurturing communities. We support each other’s growth at weekly happy hour, retreats, and justice education events. We engage in conversations about vocation, race, justice, love, sexuality, God, housing, care of creation, and much more. We live into our roles as community leaders, balancing action, rest and fun.

“I love that Bethlehem teaches youth important social justice messages.”


Garden Coordinator


Community Outreach Coordinator

“The BLC young adult group has fostered authentic relationships and space to ask the hard questions of intersectional justice work. This has been vitalizing and simultaneously grounding for me. I’m excited to continue to build relationships for young adults to come together to connect as movers and shakers.”


Youth Lead Mentor


Green Team Liaison


Youth Lead Mentor

“Being a young adult is all about building a community through other people especially ones that are around your same age.  It’s important and comforting to be a part of a young adult community when you are trying to discover who you are or want to be.”


Garden Coordinator

“I love working in the garden because it reminds me to slow down, to reconnect with the natural beauty that exists even here in busy Minneapolis. And, the delicious veggies make it even more worth it!”

Across Generations: Dine N’ Discuss

April 23 | Bethlehem Lutheran Church Twin Cities – MPLS Campus

We know that it can be tricky crossing the generational divide to have deep conversations, which is why we are inviting youth and congregational members to bring someone they care about from a different generation to practice doing just that at these round-table lunch events. Come to laugh, converse, and connect across generations. Events are free, and include pizza. Registration recommended.
