Hey friends! Can you believe it’s almost fall? We are so eager to have you guys back around. As we’ve been planning for fall there’s a ton of great stuff coming up that we want you guys to know about!
Our purpose in UMIN is to make disciples of Jesus who make disciples for the rest of their lives. The main way we do this is through Discipleship Groups. These groups are made up of a few of your friends, walking through life with a mentor who is a life-phase (or more) ahead of you, who will challenge you to look more like Christ during your time in college. If you’re interested in joining a DGroup, we’ll have two interest meetings when you get back – Sunday, September 15th after Sunday School in the Loft, or Wednesday, September 18th after Worship & Study in the Loft. Plan to be at one of those meetings to find out more and sign up for this central piece of our ministry! We kick off new groups the week of September 29th.
Speaking of Sunday School and Worship & Study, we’re really eager to walk through Scripture with you guys this fall. Sunday School kicks off August 25th at 11am in the Student Building. Each fall we offer four different classes in Sunday school that you can be a part of for the entire semester, and you don’t want to miss it! In Worship & Study we will be walking through the book of Hebrews, beginning August 28th at 8:30pm. Bring your friends and come worship with us!
Every year we look forward to sharing some free, warm, buttery goodness – this year our Pancake Kickoff will be Tuesday, August 27th from 9pm to midnight. We love to welcome you guys back to school, and what better way than with free pancakes in the Student Building!?
This year we’re planning another great Fall Retreat on October 4th and 5th! We’ll be heading to Camp Hargis – it’s the perfect chance for you guys to get away from the crazy start of school and enjoy time together in community, complete with a campfire, s’mores, worship and Bible study with some great friends to lead us. You’ll hear more from us about how to signup in August, but mark it on your calendars – it’s going to be awesome!
We’re praying for you guys as summer winds down and you start to think about school again. We cannot wait to see how the Lord works in the upcoming semester, and we really can’t wait to see your smiling faces again soon!
