Who We Are

The Young Adult Group (YAG) is a thriving community for ages 18-35 at First Parish in Cambridge, Massachusetts (Unitarian Universalist). With a focus on kindness and respect, we welcome a diversity of people and ideas, and seek to build deep, lasting relationships. Knowing that our inner lives of self-discovery are enriched through participation in an intentional community, we strive to grow together in awareness, conscience, and spirit. We meet once a week for spiritual discussion, worship, community building, and creative sharing. We usually go out for brunch after Sunday services, as well as hosting potlucks, local outings, hiking, and occasional group retreats.


Our young adults come from a variety of faith traditions and backgrounds; they may be unaffiliated with a religious denomination, nonreligious/secular, searching for a spiritual community, "spiritual but not religious", undecided, or a combination of the above. Many are also members of the Unitarian Universalist congregation, and find deeper fulfillment by participating in other aspects of community life. We are mindful that each brings something unique to the group, and that growth is a process of teaching and learning from one another. We are an inclusive circle and invite our members to participate as they are able and comfortable. All are welcome!


Come and join us on Tuesday nights from 7:15 to 9, at First Parish in Cambridge, located at 3 Church St. in Harvard Square [map]. Sunday services start at 10:30 followed by a coffee hour, after which Young Adult Group meets informally for lunch. This is an easy way to meet people and lean more about YAG.
