Oh lord- the darkest night, you can light it up🌟

No matter what school, work or life is throwing at you this week, we can have hope in Jesus- who is a steadfast anchor in a troublesome world!

Join us tonight as we worship together at Old Brick at 8pm!!!!! Spread the word🤩
Let’s start off this final week before spring break with a little encouraging piece of scripture😎

Tomorrow we’ll be having an event at the River Church! Keep an eye on our social media for more information to come!!
COMING TO A CAMPUS NEAR YOU!!!

You heard it here first folks- our typical Thursday night large group followed by an ace featuring therapy dogs!!!

If you have never been to an after cru event this year, or this semester, this one will be furry great🥳
I don’t know about you, but we’re already day dreaming about Thursday night Cru!!!

Life groups are still meeting both Tuesday & Wednesday! We’d love to get you connected to one while we wait for large group!😆
We learned on Thursday the value of getting plugged into a local church outside of Cru! No matter if you’re here for 2 OR 10 years, there is an importance in being around a diverse body of Christ!!!

“Engaging in the church means bringing your gifts and talents to serve the church and its mission. The church reflects God’s image when each member is contributing for the good of the whole.” - Cru

If finding a local church has been a struggle for you, let us get you connected! We’d love to share some options with you!☺️
Join us tomorrow (2/2) at 1PM in the IMU to pray over each other and the campus!!

Let us be joyful with hope, patient when afflictions arise and individuals who faithfully go to the Lord in prayer through the midst of it all!!🙌🏽
Didn’t get to attend winter conference this past month or wanting another conference experience?! Well!!!!! Cru is hosting a virtual winter conference February 4th-6th!!

Only $29 unless you already have received a swag box from attending the winter conference in Minneapolis!

Our flashback Friday is from the Go night at WC! It got us thinking- what or who is your until every?!😁🙌🏽
“The grass withers and the flowers fall, but the word of our God endures forever.” - ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40:8‬ ‭NIV‬‬

We pray you have a desire to read through God’s word, and let it shape your mind. The word of God is living and active, and sharper than any double-edged sword!

Do you have any favorite verses? Or ones that truly stand out to you?☺️
It’s been a while, but we’re back with another meet the leader Monday!!!😁

Sean leads our worship team that you see on stage on Thursday nights! We think he’s strictly a dog person but we’ll let you ask him to be sure…🤷🏼‍♀️
Just a little something to remind you that sometimes evangelism is about being a friend, coming along side someone and being a listening ear! Everyone has their own personal story, and we’ve been given a unique opportunity to hear about them. Let us be quick to listen!🙌🏽
Join us tonight for our first weekly meeting of the semester at Old Brick, right on campus!!

8 PM FOLKS!!!!!🥳

We know the time between thanksgiving break & winter break can be one of the most exhausting periods in college, but just know we see you, we hear you, we care for each of you!💗

Over summer mission some of our students used this verse as a journal prompt to be reminded of the good and faithful God we serve.

I have so much needed to be done, but your steadfast love endures forever.

I’m struggling to find time for myself, but your steadfast love endures forever.

I haven’t been able to go to Cru lately, but your steadfast love endures forever.

(Fill in the blank), but your steadfast love endures FOREVER!

Take a few moments this week to reflect on what this says about the Lord, and what this can mean for you or others!

“I am going to winter conference this year because I have seen the impact it has on my life by going. Winter conference was my first cru retreat I went on and it made me stronger in my faith as well as finding that community piece I was missing. Because of winter conference, it gave me opportunities to share my faith. I am so excited to go this year and I hope that you join me in going!”

Whenever I think of the word surrender, I think about the amount of time & trust I’m yielding over into something, someone or someplace..

It’s a reminder of the quote, you become what you focus on & you are like who you spend time with..

Where do you feel like you feel most comfortable surrendering to?

It is what the world says is the best way for you to find control or is it with the one who knows all, can see all, and above all else wants what is best for you?

What can you surrender today that will point you one step closer to God?

11/11/2021

Cru Fam— Make sure to mark your calendars because tomorrow is already Thursday!!!😆🥳🙌🏽

Join us tomorrow to hear a talk on surrender & it’s importance!

TOMORROW | OLD BRICK | 8 PM

11/08/2021

Let’s take a moment today & pray!!🙏🏽

Did you know that out of the 17,400 Nations (people groups) in the world, there are 7,400 Nations that are unreached with the Gospel!?

Can we as a campus ministry be committed to praying for the world who doesn’t know who Christ is? Can we be praying for the Lord to support people who will go to the world?!

11/07/2021

You heard it on Thursday—November is meant to be a month full of resources & talks about the importance of taking OUR shared good news to the Nations! Every tribe, every tongue, every person on this Earth🌎📰

As you consider God's plan for reaching the nations, what part do you think he has for you to play?😊

If you’re in need of a little pick me up this week, head no further than Psalm 19! It’s just what you will need to feel the presence of our almighty loving God!

11/01/2021

This weeks meet the leader Monday!!!💛

If you’ve ever wondered who the face behind our insta is… well now you know!

I haven’t had the typical college journey, and learning what it means to be content in that has been a long journey as well— But interning next year seems like the crazy ounce of faith that God is calling from me!! You can’t get rid of me that fast!😆👏🏽

& again feel free to leave us a comment or a dm if you’d like to join the social media team or hear more about it!

HAPPY MONDAY & CHEERS TO A NEW MONTH!🍂
