College can be stressful. So, Marshall UKIRK seeks to offer opportunities for Sabbath Rest. That can simply mean stopping by the Campus Christian Center to take a nap on the couch or going on a retreat, but there are many other opportunities to take a break from your studies and dwell in the presence of God. In addition to our regular programming, come by the office to pick up some resources on making Sabbath a spiritual practice.
Montreat 2018 Montreat Conference Center, located in the mountains of North Carolina, is a resource of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) that offers various educational opportunities throughout the year. You probably know it for the Montreat Youth Conference that happens every summer. Well, there is a college conference too! Its January 2nd through the 5th, and we’ll be partnering with the UKIRK groups from WVU and Shepherd University to rent a house! Keep an eye out for details about signing up.
The word “Home” has many meanings to people of faith. As young people go to college, study abroad, begin jobs, engage in mission work, and leave their home towns and families of origin, “Home” begins to have new meanings. What makes a place home? What does it mean to leave home? What does it mean to feel like you don’t have a home? As we wrestle with these questions, we look to the past and to Holy Scriptures; as people of faith, with an eye towards a just future and commissioned by God to engage in Kingdom-building, we reflect on those who do not have a home and cry out for justice and mercy. Join us for worship, recreation, fellowship, and study at College Conference 2018 as we build a home of faith together. All are welcome!
