MAYAs formed as a group in July of 2007. MAYAs is comprised of Young Adults from congregations in the Greater Pacific Northwest Mission Center. Members of MAYAs live in Seattle, Portland, Salem, Vancouver, Eugene, and Tigard.


Metro Area Young Adults is a ministry within the Community of Christ. We strive to embody the church mission to proclaim Jesus Christ and promote communities of hope, love, joy, and peace. All are welcome to laugh, learn, share, fellowship, and worship.

From Erica Lasley:
Sunday Night Church will be happening the first and 3rd Sundays of the month, alternating between TCC and Vancouver. The next SNC will be at Garden Grove on Sunday October 4th at 6:45 P.M. Currently we are open to young adults and older youth. What is most important is that anyone who comes must be prepared to share openly and accept anyone who comes through the door. There is no prejudice and no judging, but there is a lot of sharing, laughing and worshiping.

The Future of MAYAs

Hello All!

We had a good time with the Lincoln City folks yesterday. They are a kind and compassionate group. I am glad we were able to share in ministry with them!

On another note, this summer marks our 2nd year since we came together as a group. We have had a lot of amazing experiences together and a lot of fun. We have had strong relationships built from the group and the ability to share in faith with one another.

I have been praying for the group and the direction we should be going. I have also been praying about my own personal contributions to the group and need to discuss this with the group. I would like us to all pray and reflect on MAYAs, where we want to go, and what we are willing to do to help. So when we come together we will be able to openly share.

Please join us on July 26th at 3pm for a get together with fun and seriousness as we discuss the future of the MAYAs. Details below:

What: Swimming, BBQ, discussion about the future of MAYAs
When: July 26, 3pm to around 8*

Financial Peace Round # 2

Hello again,

I am really excited to have the chance to offer a life changing class starting April 15th at Tuality Community of Christ Church. You may have read about it in last months Herald. The class is entitled Financial Peace University and it is taught by radio host Dave Ramsey (by DVD not in person). The class will change the way you think about money. It will teach about giving, saving, and spending. All 13 lessons will give great information that will help you to learn how to better handle your money get out of debt, save more, and spend less. You not only learn about paying off debt, but you also gain valuable information on what types of insurance to buy, how to invest, how to use cash to get better deals, how to deal with creditors, and many other valuable lessons.

The lessons are entertaining and the group discussions will help bring something to each member that attends. We are currently 8 weeks into our first class and I can already see transformations in the families. I am starting to see what true Financial Peace means in there lives as they begin the steps to transform. As I speak with them I can already see there confidence rising and there hearts filling with joy as they give more and worry less. I can not wait to share this great class with more of you so that you can also feel the power that comes from financial peace. Class starts soon so please contact me at or 503-336-4413 if you would like to attend. I will be ordering materials soon.
