Calling all Young Adults!

We are looking all those adults who are out of high school and navigating that strange “in-between time” in life during college, 20s...and where ever 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. 

Tuesday Trivia

Meet Amzie at Aldo’s every 2nd Tuesday at Aldo’s for Pizza and Trivia at 7 p.m. at the midtown location. First slice is on us! At the end of the first month of trivia the group will vote if they want to try a new monthly trivia location around Memphis. Our first meeting will be September 13. 

Community Engagement Team

Join our young adult community engagement team! Each month we will gather to choose a local ministry or nonprofit to learn about and work with. By spending a bit more time focusing on an area a time, we hope to more activity connect with those we may find ourselves working and engaging with and form meaningful relationships with our fellow Memphians. 

Young Adult Book Group

We are seeking our young adults who love to read to help give input for our YA Book Club. Our first meeting will be September 28 from 5 – 6 p.m. for finger food and brainstorming what we would like out of our time together. How often and where do we meet? How will we pick our reads? What snacks do we want?! Be a part of the conversation and help get us off the ground! If you have input, but cannot attend, just shoot Amzie an email ( and he will find a time to connect. 

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 email for the release of Diocesan YA dates and events. 

Advent Group

Join the young adults of GSL this Advent for a special season of reflection as we prepare for Christmas.
