Young Adult Winter-Spring 2023 Update

We offer opportunities for young adults who are out of high school and navigating that strange “in-between time” in life during college, 20s... and wherever you may find yourself in life if you feel like a “young adult”! We invite all those who are seeking to engage with fellow Episcopalians for gatherings surrounding fellowship, exploring our community, and continuing our spiritual journeys in new and adventurous ways. Join Amzie Williams for regular opportunities to meet and connect with fellow GSL young adults both at GSL and around Memphis.
Weekend Outings. On the 1st Sunday each month, all young adults are invited to group weekend outings all across the 901! From meals in our own backyards, kayaking at Tom Lee Park, Yoga at the Shell, or attending a special worship service together at Barth House, we seek to unite and explore Memphis in joyous community. For event details, be sure to keep an eye out for Amzie’s email and the GSL eNews at the start of each month. 

Cooking Group. Our young adult team continues to take part in the cooking program that GSL does in partnership with Church Health to provide good, nutritious meals for those who are food insecure. All helping hands are welcome.

Thursday Trivia. Meet Amzie at Young Avenue Deli in Midtown every 2nd Thursday for food and trivia. We gather at 5:45 p.m. and trivia starts at 6 p.m. Friends are welcome! Join us for trivia, food, and fun!

Young Adult Book Group. Our young adult book group continues into the spring. We are continually searching for great reads to share with each other. If you’re interested, just shoot Amzie an email at

Diocesan Young Adult Events. Meet fellow Episcopalians from across Memphis. Organized by the Rev. Dr. Noah Campbell and often hosted at the Barth House, GSL will be present and supporting all of our Diocesan young adult events, so feel free to join any that pique your interest! Keep an eye out in our emails for the release of Diocesan YA dates and events. 

We want to hear from you! Our young adults ministry is new and looking to all that our community hopes it to be. Part of complementing that vision is hearing from you! Visit the link listed below to let us know what drives, inspires, angers, or fulfills you. Let us know your favorite hobbies or places to frequent in Memphis, clubs to start or communities to engage with, we want to hear it all!
