Welcome to InterVarsity Christian Fellowship at SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson University!

    We are a group of college students from both universities who meet weekly to hang out, develop close friendships, and learn more about God. We meet in various smaller study groups throughout the week to spend time studying the Bible and discussing what it means. We also organize fun events like hiking, apple picking, an International Student Thanksgiving and Easter Dinners, and a barn dance. Our group is open to anyone who is interested in learning more about Jesus and making new friends! So please check out the rest of the website to find times and locations for meetings and events.

Upcoming in IV:

Hey InterVarsity Family!

I hope you are all having a good week!

At last Friday’s Large Group we discussed Luke 10 and the dual command to ‘pray’ and ‘go.’  “PRAY to the Lord of the harvest,” the text says, “to send out workers into His harvest field.” “GO! I am sending you out like lambs among wolves.”    We believe that ‘Pray & Go’ is as much a command for 21st century Christians as it was for believers in the 1st century.  Would you please join us in praying for God to raise up more workers in the SUNY Potsdam and Clarkson University harvest fields?  Would you also commit yourself to going with the good news of Christ and sharing the love of God with as many friends as possible?  Which of these two commands do you need help with?  Consider finding someone who could pray with and for you, until you too become a faithful ‘Pray & Go’ follower of Christ.  


This Week’s Large Group is going to be awesome!

This week we’ll be gathering at Clarkson University’s Moore House Lounge at 7pm. Rides will be leaving Potsdam’s Student Union at 6:45pm. We’ll be discussing social justice, with a specific emphasis on relational justice. There will be two personal testimonies shared. We really hope you are able to make it!

Let’s Go Hiking!

This Saturday we are going hiking...up St. Regis Mountain!  PLEASE JOIN US!!!  Rides will be leaving from the College Union at SUNY Potsdam and Moore House at Clarkson at 9:30 with the plan to be back my dinner time.  This hike is rated moderately difficult, with beautiful views at the summit, and a climbable fire tower to boot!  To reserve a spot on this adventure, and for any questions, text Glen at (315) 265-4823.  Eat a hearty breakfast, pack a lunch and plenty of water (recommended amount is 64 oz), warm clothes, and comfortable hiking sneakers/boots.
