Young Adults and College


Sure, San Francisco offers you beautiful scenery, delicious fusion food, and all the hipster coffee you can drink. But many are still looking for real community and direction in their lives. The Young Adults and College Students (YACS) group at FBCSF exists to help people understand the Bible and provide meaningful community. We believe the Bible is the guide for our lives and that a relationship with God is the most important aspect of our lives. We also put great importance and value in consistent involvement with a community of other followers of Christ and we welcome anyone (within the ages of 18-28, of course) who wants to be a part of ours.

So if you are interested in learning more about the Bible and being with a group of people who are still trying to figure out where their lives are going, come visit our group! You'll probably get a FREE LUNCH out of the deal too.

If you consider yourself a Christian, we would love for you to be a part of our group and grow in your relationship with God through learning to teach and reach out to people in San Francisco.

The Fearless Leaders:

Spencer Sims: Spencer is a Mississippi native who prefers quiet nights at home nurturing his introverted side. You can usually find him making lamps out of recycled materials or browsing the sidewalks of the Lower Haight for more junk for his wall collage. He enjoys quiet rides on the N train through a foggy night and prefers to be the leader in the kitchen.

Caprice Applequist: Caprice can typically be found selling, eating, and baking delicious desserts. She enjoys dragging Spencer out of his house to explore the city with her. She tried to have a rooftop garden once, but it died after she forgot about it for a couple of weeks. All of her best papers in grad school were written to the beat of low quality, mainstream pop music. Her bicycle is her main source of transportation and if you are interested in learning more about the Bible, she will instantly be your best friend. Caprice aspires to get a PhD one day and own a cat or two.

Spencer and Caprice met at a bonfire in the Fall of 2011, where they bonded because they both have trouble with large crowds of unfamiliar people. They have been "just friends" ever since. They share a passionate love for "quesaritos" from Taqueria El Castillito and shawarma. They also firmly believe that shawarma is a 3-syllable word. They are incredible at karaoke, although they would never do it in public. This dynamic duo regularly impresses people with their creative and quick event planning skills.

Come. Be our friend.

On Facebook? Us too! Find us and let's connect.


Thursdays: Join us in the YACS room at the church (2nd door up from the back parking lot) at 7pm for a time of fellowship, Bible Study, and prayer. This is a time for us to grow together, going deeper with each other and Scripture. Coming straight from work or class? Bring your dinner with you! Discussion begins at 7:30pm.

Sundays: Join us for worship together on Sunday mornings at 10:30am. Try out a Growth Course at 9:15am!


YACS-Events: Each month you can expect an exciting and suprising event! Sometimes we go camping together. Sometimes we watch a movie. Sometimes we explore San Francisco. Almost always, we eat.

The Point:

Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.
