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.
