20-40 Club

Who are we

We are St. Anthony’s Young Adult Ministry. Our goal is to reach out and organize young adults in their 20’s and 30’s throughout the metropolitan area for ministry, stewardship, and service. We strive to embody the teachings and values of our Orthodox Faith, while giving back to our parish and community.

Our hope is to unite and intermingle with other young adults groups from parishes in the surrounding area. Our long term goal is to build an organization with strong networking ability, where young adults can meet new people, form new friendships and make new contacts both social and professional.

Volunteering: We are involved with the “Food for the Hungry” program. We do volunteer work at local homeless shelters and help collect winter coats for the homeless. We also work our yearly church festival, providing both ideas and manpower.

Social events: Socialization is an important aspect of the 20/40 club, and activities occur throughout the year. We enjoy sporting events/ activities, retreats, camping, etc.

Networking Events: Casual “meet n’ greets” are often the most fun, and a great way to meet new people.

Mentoring: Children are our future. What can be more important than mentoring our youth and teen (SOYO) organizations? Mentoring helps to reinforce their bonds with Orthodoxy and their faith in God.

If our 20/40 club, sounds like an organization you would like to join, or you’re with another parish with a young adult group, reach out to us. We would love to hear from you.
