This Bible study includes Christians from numerous denominations and is a perfect place for anyone who has been participating in Bible studies for years or who wants to study the Bible for the first time. Come enjoy snacks, create new friendships, a time of prayer, and a time to study God's word more deeply.

Christians in Action Small Group
Fridays, 4 p.m., Campus Ministry
How does being Christian impact our understanding of world events and social justice? How does our faith call us respond to the suffering of others due to hunger, poverty and injustice? The Christians in Action small group will study various social justice issues and reflect on different ways we are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus in the world today.
