  • Freshmen Bible Study

    The Freshmen group will meet in Elder at 8pm on Wednesday nights (starting week 2). There will always be food, always be pals, and always be good conversation about the Bible and life. Hope you can join us! Community groups are a place where students can study the Bible, build rich friendships, and pray. We recognize that the Christian life is far too difficult and counter-cultural to live out on our own. These groups lead to deeper community so that we can work out the implications of the gospel in our lives together. Community groups meet once a week over dinner in various apartments and dorms throughout campus.
