Young Single LDS Adult Activities

Save

Activities for young single adults (roughly 18 to 26 years old) who are Latter-day Saints (LDS) have to fulfill several requirements. The activities must be in harmony with the moral and other behavioral guidelines of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The activities must also provide opportunities for young single adults to become acquainted with one another in a wholesome, uplifting atmosphere. Activities must also be either free or low in cost. There are several categories of activities that fit these requirements.

Cultural Activities

  • Museums often have a low-cost or no-cost period when the LDS young singles can attend as a group; one option is to meet as a group afterward and discuss what group members found particularly noteworthy, thought-provoking, or inspiring.

    Some communities also have free musical concerts or dance recitals, especially in the summer, where the LDS young singles can attend as a group. Many communities have LDS members who are knowledgeable about local LDS history; such members may be willing to lead the LDS young singles in a tour of local sites relevant to LDS history.

Sports Activities

  • Many communities offer opportunities to for LDS young singles to engage in sports activities as a group. These opportunities might include swimming, biking, and hiking. In competitive activities, such as volleyball and softball, everyone should be included, and males and females should be distributed equally among all teams.

Family Home Evening-type activities

  • Many activities are appropriate for a Family Home Evening setting. With a minimum of planning, a potluck dinner and a night of board games can be very enjoyable. With more preparation, a group can put on one of the "participants solve the mystery" games that are available in many bookstores or online.

Movie Night

  • Movies have to be handled carefully because it is easy for people to direct all attention to the movie, rather than to building relationships with each other. One way to handle this situation is to have the group enjoy a video as part of a Family Home Evening, and then devote at least half an hour to discussing the film.
