Friday Nights

Join us for our Friday night large group meetings this Fall!  This semester, we'll be focusing on the fruits of the spirit, the nine attributes listed in Galatians that describe people who live in accordance with the Holy Spirit.  What relevance do these fruits have for our lives as graduate students, and what does it look like for us to bear them?  Join us on Fridays at 6pm in Hale 110B as we explore these questions with an exciting line up of speakers from academia, ministry, counseling, and others.  Dinner is provided each week!  We also gather beforehand for prayer at 5:30pm.
