Psalm 9:2 “I will be glad and rejoice in you. I will sing the praises of your name, O Most High.”

Campus Christian Fellowship (CCF) offers a time for students to share a meal, followed by a program, which often includes a guest speaker, games, and service projects. CCF meets on Tuesday evenings in the Mason Fellowship Hall in the Chapel. New members are always welcome.

Craft Room and Study Spaces–The basement (1st floor) of Memorial Chapel contains rooms that are open to students anytime of the morning/day/evening. The Craft room is stocked with art supplies. There are rooms available for individuals or groups to meet and study together. The Interfaith Room is also there if you need moments of peace and quiet.

Fellowship of Christian Athletes is open to athletes and non-athletes alike. Participants gather weekly at lunchtime. Group members lead devotions, share concerns, and encourage one another “to meet the challenge and adventure of following Christ.”

Interfaith Student Union (ISU) seeks to inform, educate, and raise awareness of religious diversity through a variety of events and discussions. Any and all religious and spiritual paths are welcome. Weekly meeting times for the upcoming semester are TBA. An Interfaith Room is located in Room 103 in Memorial Chapel and is open to all for prayer and meditation.

Kerygma is a group of students who are intentionally seeking to discern God’s call in their lives. Some feel called to a professional vocation in the church, while others are discerning more generally God’s plan for their lives. Kerygma members sponsor and lead discussion groups and retreats for the campus community in order to help shape Christians into stronger leaders.

Retreats/Conferences that are offered annually include FCA College Advance, E&H Fall Spiritual Life Retreat, Passion Conference, and Feet First Young Adult Retreat.

Spiritual Life Housing is part of the College’s Theme House program. Carter, a co-ed house, provides a Christian atmosphere in which members of the community live according to a covenant that focuses on prayer, Bible study, Christian fellowship, and hospitality to the wider campus community.

Spiritual Life Summer Internships provide students with the opportunity to spend a summer immersing themselves in the collaborative work of churches serving their communities. Rural and urban placements are available where interns learn about the work that congregations are doing to make an impact on issues such as addiction and homelessness. Students are provided with housing, academic internship credit, and a stipend.

Sunday Morning Worship–On-campus opportunities include a 9:30am breakfast and worship service with the congregation of Emory United Methodist Church in Memorial Chapel. The student-led 9:02 Worship Band participates in morning services, along with the church and handbell choirs. We are also glad to assist students with locating off-campus worship opportunities.
