Captivated by God's love. Compelled by God's story.
Here's what we do in Santa Barbara...
1. Create opportunities for us to connect and serve with each other as well as with those in our larger church family.
2. Experience and share the authentic love of Jesus with fellow young adults.
3. Invite and encourage each other to live out God's big story for ourselves, our city, and our world.
4. Have fun together, get outside together, read & reflect together, eat together, and just generally do life together.
Every Sunday After Church
Santa Barbara, CA
Come hang out with us on a Sunday after church! We pick a new place to eat every time- usually a place somewhere Downtown, on the East-side, or in the Funk Zone- and sit, talk, and connect with each other. It's a super casual, no pressure way to meet other young adults and become a part of the community here at Oceanhills.
Saturdays During Summer from 12-5pm
April 28th @ Leadbetter Beach
May 26th @ Santa Claus Beach
June 30th @ Shoreline Park
During the summer, we take community outside and spend some Saturdays BBQ-ing, playing games, relaxing, and getting to know each other. Whether you are new to Oceanhills, have been coming for a while, or are home from college, this is a great way to spend your afternoons in summertime!
Second Sunday Worship Service
7-9pm on the Second Sunday of Every Month
The Loft, Downtown Santa Barbara
Second Sunday is a worship service put on by young adults at The Loft every 2nd Sunday of the month. Young adults lead worship, share a sermon or a story, pray, and facilitate small group time together. It's a time for us to develop deeper faith-based relationships together and to work together to be a strong, life-giving part of our community.
We use camping trips as getaways to connect with God in Creation, solitude, and in silence and to connect with each other through scripture, conversation, and fun. We keep things simple and close to town to make retreating easy regardless of work schedule and other responsibilities.
Mission & Adventure Trips
June 10-19, 2018 in Quito, Ecuador at Casa Victoria
The summer of 2018 we went on our first ever Mission & Adventure Trip as Oceanhills Young Adults. Finding ways to serve globally and grow in adventure together is of high importance to us as a community. Our trips focus on serving those in need through strong connections already established at Oceanhills. To be a part of serving communities so far beyond ourselves, we hope to develop a greater understanding of the love of Jesus and the heart he has for all people.
Sundays at Oceanhills
Mondays at The Rescue Mission
Tuesdays on State Street
Thursdays at Alameda Park
Serving together is a huge part of our culture as Oceanhills Young Adults. We are passionate about being "in it together" with our church community, with our friends without homes, with those in recovery, and with each other. Groups of us serve regularly in various ways and places. There are many places to use your gifts and help the people around you and we'd love to serve alongside you.
