First Fuel!

Wednesday, September 5th, 7:30pm at The Student Oasis (basement of Memorial Church)

We're excited to kick off our weekly meeting on Wednesday for our first FUEL of the year!!! We will be hearing from our very own Chris Lawson as he shares about our vision and theme for the year. This year's theme for Fuel will be "Jesus and [blank space]" in which we'll be looking closely at where we see the truth of the Gospel reflected in our everyday humdrum, how we can grow in our ability to let it impact our lives and our relationships with others. We will also mingle and catch up over snacks! All friends and roommates are welcome! See you there!

Jesus and Justice

Wednesdays in October, 7pm-9pm at The Student Oasis (basement of Memorial Church)

We're excited to partner with International Justice Mission to host a four week exploration of Jesus and Justice. A common and important question is where and how do Christianity and the injustices of the world intersect? What does that mean for Christians but even more so what does that mean for the world? Come join us for this opportunity to explore these questions further. We'll have a meal each week along, listen to a short, thought-provoking message, and then discuss the implications with one another. We hope to see you there!
