Welcome back to Spring Semester! We hope you had a wonderful winter break. We've got lots of fun and important events coming your way this semester. Scroll on down the page to see what we've got planned and then come join us!


Life Groups!


Life groups are starting up again! These are our weekly small group meetings that take place all over campus. Life groups are the place where we do life together. We study the Bible, explore hard questions, encourage each other, and help one another grow closer to God. You don't have to be Christian to come! If you want to join a life group this semester, sign up here and we will make sure you get connected.

Grub Buds!

Sign up for CI+AIA Grub Buds! Every two weeks, you'll have the chance to be paired with a random member of CI+AIA to grab a meal together. Meal pairings are a great way to meet new people and to strengthen our community!

Every other week, the form will open Wednesday and close on Saturday. You'll be notified of your pairing by Sunday night. Then, you and your new bud can schedule a meal at your convenience.

Participation is completely voluntary and you can sign up as often or as little as you like. Yay community!
