There are a variety of ways to be involved with UKirk during the year. We take retreats, go on campus-wide scavenger hunts, do service projects, and often hang out and get to know one another. To spent together building community and relationships maybe the most important part of what we do.
We often gather around food, or drink of some kind, and talk about faith, life, and the things that matter to us.
COMMUNITY WORSHIP & DINNER
TUESDAY NIGHT AT 7:00 in McCain Hall room 150
Each week we hear and reflect on Scripture, and observe a time of sharing our joys and concerns together in prayer.
All Tuesday night meals are free to students, and are prepared by generous volunteers from local congregations.
COFFEE AND CONVERSATION
THURSDAY 8:00 - 9:00 AM at the Highway 12 (off campus) Starbucks
A relaxed time for discussion and informal Bible study and theological discussion group that meets on Thursday mornings at 8:00.Topics will vary, and we do not have to agree on everything. The purpose of this group is to have open and honest discussions about life from a faith-filled perspective.
Montreat Conference Center, located in the mountains of North Carolina, is a resource of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) that offers various educational opportunities throughout the year. The College Conference at Montreat is the largest Presbyterian gathering of college students in the country. (But you don't have to be Presbyterian to join in!) We go as a regional group with our neighbors from Mississippi State, Delta State, and the W. Its January 2nd through the 5th. Keep an eye out for details about signing up.
The Theme for this year is: Compassionate Community.
The 2019 College Conference at Montreat will respond to God’s call for compassion in a broken world. As a community of faith we will discern God’s compassionate nature and how God is calling us to act with compassion in our communities, campuses, churches, and families. We will learn from faith leaders and organizations who are living lives of compassion, working towards justice and peace in their communities.
Join us as we create a community of compassion through worship, play, study, and fellowship and consider how God is calling us to dismantle barriers, comfort those in trouble, and to live lives of compassion.
Thanks to the generosity of the Presbytery of St. Andrew, all you have to pay is the conference registration fee itself!
We've got housing, lunches, and dinners covered. (Scholarships may be available on a individual basis.)
