Our spiritual journey doesn't end in college but continues throughout our lives. We are called to remain faithful in learning and growing in our faith. None of us will ever have our faith figured out completely. We will experience times of deep connection with God and other times when we are walking in the valley of the shadow of death and through it all we will have trials that will bring out questions, doubts and times of wrestling in our faith and so we go back to the source of our knowledge about God, the scriptures, and seek a deeper understanding of who God is for our lives.
It is through Bible studies, book studies, small groups and other opportunities that we can continue to live out our calling to grow in Christian maturity. To this end we seek to have different opportunities for our adults to gather, learn and grow in their faith.
