Spiritual Life Week coffeehouse

Fall 2018 SLW

“Hannah showed us that you don’t need to feel qualified to do this work, you just need to start and follow through. Spiritual Life Week was both inspiring and challenging... looking at what we can do as the Church and also as people.”

Spiritual Life Week

One week each semester is set aside for a special time of focusing on the Christian life. Students play a major role in planning activities that help strengthen growth and faithfulness in our relationship with God. The week includes guest speakers and special times of worship.

Speaker: Hannah Troyer

Hannah Troyer

Hannah is a community activist, artist, and dreamer from Akron, Ohio.

Hannah will help us think about the church-the values and practices of the early church and what we can learn from it as we live in a hyper-politicized and divided world. She will lead us in dreaming about how the church can be relevant for today, and how this generation of young adults can find their place and their voice in the church now and into the future. She will speak at the Spiritual Life Week kick-off event on Sunday evening, Tuesday's Forum and Thursday's chapel service, as well as participate in evening events throughout the week.
