Upcoming Events
Halloween Outreach – October 31 5-7pm
On Halloween, we reach out to our community by providing a warm, dry, and safe (not scary) place to trick or treat for all kids.

Portrait Day – November 10 | 10am-4pm
Southwest Young Adults are sponsoring a Free Portrait Day. Have you been wanting to get a photo of your family for those Christmas cards? Kids growing like weeds and are already a foot taller than last year? Need a photo for your blog or family website? This is especially for people who cannot afford a traditional photo studio. You can sign up to get a photo taken of you or your family for free. Our Portrait Day is Saturday, November 10th from 10am-4pm. We only have 20 spots available so sign up quickly! Email gwendolynjcourtney@gmail.com or mike@swest.org to make an appointment and reserve your time slot.

Please share this event with anyone you think you would nominate for a free family portrait.

Event takes place at the Southwest Church of Christ in Tigard:

9725 SW Durham Road | Tigard, Oregon 97140 | (503) 620-0221

Southwest Young Adults

Wherever your place in life: single or married, in college or working a career, or taking care of your children; if you are 18-30, you have a welcome place with us.

As adults, we are responsible for becoming disciplined in how we grow into maturity.

One way our ministry helps us become more mature disciples is by how we respond to the points of our mission statement: We are a Christ-focused family, committed to Living for God, Loving each other, and Lighting the World.

We live for Christ by serving one another. We have had opportunities to give of ourselves fully like the Acts church did. We love each other deeply. You can see that by how we encourage and pray for one another. Through good and bad, we care about one another. Finally, we are lighting the world in our outreach. Giving of time and money in reaching out to those less fortunate than ourselves, and by how we welcome any and all who have the need of the Gospel of Jesus.


OCTOBER            NOVEMBER           DECEMBER



We have families at Southwest that care about our young people. This is something ongoing throughout the school year. Click this link to go to the Adopt-a-Young Adult page. 

Dinner & Devo - Thursdays at 7pm
Every week we meet together, have a meal, encourage each other through singing, have a short Bible discussion, and pray for each other. Currently, we are meeting at the Lewis’ house in Sherwood. Call for directions.

Sunday Morning Class – Sundays at 9am
Young Adult/College Class is discussing current trends in culture and how we respond to them as Christians. It is difficult to navigate and be civil when we speak about abortion, immigration, same sex marriage, etc. but we need to speak to these subjects based on Scripture. Taught by Mike & Janna Lewis upstairs in Room 16.
Young Married Class is learning about Emotional and Spiritual Health. This is a practical class on ways to improve our health when it comes to emotions, how we were raised, life situations that may give us anxiety, and how to mature and grow healthier in our faith to respond to these life circumstances. Taught by Barry & Denise Galindo upstairs in Room 12.

Group Lunches – Sunday (once a month)
Once a month we select a Sunday to go out for lunch together at a local restaurant.

Game Night – Mondays at 7pm
Game nights are spent playing board games, cards, and other table top games. We meet in various homes and locations. Contact us to find out where Game Night is this week!

Beach Retreat – Every Fall
We have an annual retreat to the Oregon Coast in Waldport. It is an opportunity to get away from the big cities and suburbs we live in and enjoy nature and grow closer as friends, to learn, and encourage one another.

Catalyst – Every Memorial Weekend
Every May, the Catalyst Retreat brings young adults together from across the Pacific Northwest and beyond. The goals of Catalyst are to experience God and grow closer to Him and each other. We gather at Camp Yamhill every Memorial Weekend.
