T2A2 - Twenties & Thirties

Are you a young(ish) adult looking to connect with others in Ann Arbor? Twenties and Thirties of Ann Arbor (T2A2) is a great way to meet people and build community! Join us for a Wednesday evening hangout, discuss faith-related questions in a Sunday evening small group, and/or engage in service and justice-making opportunities as your schedule allows.

For some graduate students, T2A2 provides opportunities to connect with others in a low-pressure environment outside their respective academic fields. Others appreciate that T2A2 is a community where people from different life paths come together to grow spiritually through Bible study, conversations about life, and service opportunities.

What Do We Do?

  • Serve the community through organizations like Habitat for Humanity, Circles, and Feeding our Neighbors: Stadium Food Rescue.
  • Meet for small group on Sundays at 7:00 p.m. to discuss faith-related questions and grow with one another spiritually.
  • Meet on Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. to hang out and catch up.
  • Get together for special events such as brunch, kayaking, cross-country skiing, apple picking, concerts, the Super Bowl, and game nights. You name it; we probably do it!

Cass Community Social Services - December 22 and/or 23

Come help stock or work the organization's Christmas store. Description from member Paul Smith: "The store is stocked with donated new items for children ages 0-12. Parents can shop at the store paying minimal amounts for items (eg. $1 for a winter coat or 50 cents for a toy). This avoids the recipient embarrassment of donors delivering items to their homes. Here they actually choose and pay for the gifts. There is a wrapping station where they can wrap the gifts they purchase." If you're interested in helping out, I'll put you in touch with Paul!
