Connecting With Young Adults

First Church in Cambridge began drawing a large number of under-40 adults even though it is, in content and form, a traditional United Church of Christ congregation. Sarah Drummond interviewed staff and lay participants and identified three distinctive characteristics of the church’s life that seemed to appeal to younger adults:  The church was clear about its theology but created room for doubt; it had a welcoming atmosphere devoid of a sense of desperation; and members were called to an institutional commitment, though flexibility was built into how they participated. Also important, the church had an established culture of living out its faith by engaging in historic Christian faith practices. Read Drummond's article, "Faith Practices Anthology," and  learn more about the faith practices program discussed in the article on the Practicing Our Faith website.
