Campus Ministry

Our College Ministry is called Crossroads. College-aged adults face unique challenges in their stage of life as they find themselves —for the first time— completely responsible for their own decisions and direction they will go. As they stand at these crossroads and consider who they will become and where God is leading them, we want to be there to help them, surrounding them with peers at the same stage and with other adults who have already passed through. We want to remind them of what God desires for each of us.

Jeremiah 6:16 says, “Stand at the crossroads and look; ask for the ancient paths, ask where the good way is, and walk in it, and you will find rest for your souls.”

We want to remind students of just how many biblical figures faced critical decisions of their own and seek to learn from their stories, gaining the wisdom that God provides through His word. We also want to have a lot of fun together! Being a part of a church community is life-giving and a blessing for all who commit to it.

Here you will develop friendships that will strengthen and encourage you through your time here and some for many years to come.  We want to be a family who loves, cares and prays for each other as we journey down this road together. So, come join us as we journey together.

Come walk with us!

Weekly Gatherings

• Bible Class – Sundays at 9 a.m. in MAC 503 (in the gym)

On Sunday Mornings at 9am, we meet for our Bible study time. This semester’s theme is the “Credo”, and we will ask the not-so-simple question, “What do you believe?” We will have some pretty deep conversations, helping each of us strengthen our faith and understand why believe what we believe.

• UCC Worship – Sundays at 10 a.m. in the UCC Auditorium; Every week the Campus Ministry joins the entire UCC Community to worship God together.

• The Crossing –  Sunday Evenings at 9pm are set aside for The Crossing, our time of worship just for college-aged adults on the UCC Grounds. The service is a mixture of light-instrumental and a cappella worship, as we seek to be a bridge between traditional Churches of Christ and a greatly ACU non-denom- inational student body. It will be a wonderful time of singing, prayer, scripture and a short devotional talk to prepare students for the week ahead.

• Wednesday Nights – Join us for Wednesday Night Supper – a free community meal – on Wednesdays from 5:45 – 6:45 p.m. and stay for our Wednesday night campus ministry class.

Wednesday Nights at 6:30pm is a great time to get a free meal and smaller-group time. Our theme this year is Anthology. This is a Greek word that means “a collective of flowers.” This bouquet is made up of different kinds of flowers made to beautiful and fragrant. The word “anthology” has come to mean a collection of things from different genres all with a common theme. Our theme is to learn how to see God in the popular culture in which we live, through reflection. We will look at film, streaming, music, social media, literature, politics, poetry, art an many more. We will have guest speakers and allow for students to participate in things they are passionate about. The Apostle Paul once wrote “I hav tried to find common ground with everyone, doing everything I can to save some. I do everything to spread the Good News and share in its blessings” 1 Corinthians 9:22-23. We want to teach you how to engage the culture that we live in for the Kingdom of God.
