Young Adult Ministries 

Young Adult ministry at NDBC is for all those adults who are young, youngish, or young at heart.  There is no age restriction.  We offer several fellowship opportunities, including a Small Group which meets once a month in members' homes, Pub Theology, and more.  

2018 Schedule for Small Group

 September 23 We will watch the new documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” and talk about it afterwards.  This new film about Fred Rogers will give us much to talk about.  Rogers was an ordained Presbyterian minister, and was ahead of his time on many issues.  His gifts in talking to children about difficult issues will no doubt gift us too.  

October 7   We will discuss marital and family myths, using the work of Edward Wimberly in Recalling Our Own Stories.  There will be some questions I’ll distribute a couple of weeks before our meeting, and we can discuss the answers during our discussion. 

 November 4  (children invited) at 5PM, location TBD.    We’ll just hang out, eat, and fellowship at this event. 

December 2 (Christmas & Year End Party, location and time TBD).

Contact Associate Pastor Daniel Headrick if you'd like to attend or want more information.


Church School Classes:

Community:

How do we, as Christians, live in the modern world? How do we, as a church, respond to current events happening in our surrounding community? Although there are many possible answers to these questions, this young adult community seeks process the events taking place around us to realize how they impact our own lives, our understanding of God and our faith. We live in a society where news is at our fingertips, but we don’t always have a place to process events. Join us on Sunday mornings to process current events as they relate to scripture and our call to live out our faith in our daily lives.   Community Class will begin on September 16, 2018 and will meet twice a month on these dates for 2018: September 16, September 23, October 7, October 21, November 4, November 18, December 2, and December 16.  Dr. Karen Massey, Associate Dean of McAfee School of Theology, teaches our Community Class.

Tired Parents Class:

While open to all, this community consists mainly of tired parents who long for an hour of adult conversation about how to live out their faith as a partner, parent, and progressive Baptist in a busy and changing world. This year we walk the path of discovery, contemplation, and the bizarre.  We will have hymn sings, Bible drills, and challenged beliefs.  There will be (almost) 666 questions regarding Revelation.  How do we understand Christmas and Easter?  What can we learn from those we came before us?  How do we discover justice?  Movies will be discussed.  Books will be read.  Hope will emerge.  We welcome all voices to the conversation.

Teachers: Tim Getsay, David Bell, & Corbin Boekhaus 

Young Adult Events:

Pub Theology

On the second Wednesday of each month, a group of young adults go out for beer and conversations at a local pub. We explore questions about life, faith, current events, and many other topics as we navigate how we can live in the modern world. No matter what questions you have, join us for a great time.  Contact Associate Pastor Daniel Headrick at for more information.

Habitat for Humanity

Every year, NDBC partners with Habitat for Humanity and surrounding churches to participate in a build. For the past 25 years, NDBC has helped construct a home for someone in need. Building walls, putting in windows, and roofing a house are great opportunities to learn more about each other and those from other churches. We hope you'll consider joining us in this wonderful cause each year. Contact the church office for information about building dates.  

Lunch/dinners 

Throughout the year, the young adults go out to lunch after Worship on Sunday mornings or try out a new restaurant for dinner on Saturday and Sunday nights. Stay updated with outings on our Facebook page.

City of Atlanta Outings

Living in Atlanta provides events for anytime of the year. The Young Adults at NDBC periodically explore Atlanta, whether that is through the Atlanta Braves, Atlanta Hawks, a local college sports event, or a trip to museums and aquarium. Atlanta provides unique opportunities to get out and explore while getting to know each other better.
