methodist college fellowship
Welcome, Davidson College students! The Methodist College Fellowship seeks to provide Christian community for college students through small groups, fellowship, retreats, mission trips, and service projects. It’s a great way to meet people in an environment where it’s safe to doubt, ask questions, and discern how to integrate your experience as a college student with your life of faith. All are welcome!
Join us on Mondays during the school year at 8:00 p.m. at the Oasis in the Chaplain Office’s Suite, located on the fourth floor of the College Union.

BIBLE STUDY OPPORTUNITIES
Bread for the Journey
Bread for the Journey meets on Tuesdays at 12:15 p.m. in Room 313 in the Union (near the café). Lunch is provided. Bread for the Journey is an ecumenical Bible study sponsored by the Chaplain’s Office and the Catholic, Episcopal, Methodist, and Presbyterian Church (USA) campus ministries. We read a short passage from one of the Gospels and have very open discussion of it. Bring any and all questions – nothing is out of bounds. We play with the text, we wrestle with the text, we think about the historical, cultural and literary context, and we reflect about what the text might mean for our own faith. Join us!
dumc college students
DUMC’s Adopt-a-Student program is an incredible ministry to our young adults. We adopt both DUMC youth who have grown up in DUMC and are now away at college and Davidson College students. The transition to college can be a stressful and chaotic time - it’s a big change. This program acts as a bridge connecting students to DUMC while they are in college.

Interested in adopting a student?
Please consider adopting a college student! This program enables individuals, families, small groups, circles, and Sunday school classes to adopt a student. You can choose which student you would like to adopt over the upcoming academic year. You may want to send handwritten notes, “thinking of you” emails, or care packages. We will provide you with the student’s school schedule and some information about things they enjoy to help you connect and care for your student! Most importantly, we ask that you pray for your student- there is no greater gift you can offer! If you are interested in adopting a student, contact Emily Bumann (704-892-8277).
At midnight Christmas Eve (or rather, Christmas morning!), join us for pancakes and all the fixings, Christmas music, and the opportunity to catch up with other DUMC college students. More details to come!
