Beginner Blessings

Join senior students from the Ecumenical Campus Ministry, for a time of Christian worship, inclusive community-building, and prayers for new beginnings.  Get a little taste of what the Campus Church community is like, and the things ECM values in our walk with Christ - things like authentic community, meaningful spiritual practices, and the pursuit of justice.  Stick around after to share some pizza and a visit. A great opportunity to meet fellow Christians and learn about the diversity of Christian practice on campus.
