Young Adult

The Iowa City First United Methodist Young Adult group includes people in their 20s and 30s seeking to live as a Christian community. Our group includes graduate students, young professionals, young couples, and young singles! For more information, please contact Pastor Anita at anita-johnson@icfirstchurch.org.

After Church Lunch 

Most Sundays after the 10:30 service we go out to lunch or eat lunch at the church. You can find us in the gathering place at the back of the Sanctuary after the service. Please join us for good food and good conversation. 

Bible Study 

The young adult bible study will meet biweekly on Tuesday nights from 6:30-8:00 pm. Our study consists of a discussion around a Christian book paired with scripture. This is a wonderful opportunity to encourage one another in our daily lives. For more information, please contact Pastor Anita at 319-338-5075 or anita-johnson@icfirstchurch.org.
