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. Most importantly, it’s a fun place to be and everyone is 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 four Gospels each week, and then we have very open discussion of it. We encourage students to 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. If you’re interested and free at that time, please come! And if you can’t come this week, know that it is always there every week, same time and place.
Feeding the Call: Vocation and Discernment
We meet each Wednesday at 12:30 p.m. in Room 313 (except for Sept. 16, which will be in Room 302) in the College Union, September 9 - November 11. This eight-week gathering is a space for primarily juniors and seniors to reflect together on their life choices and career decisions using language and learnings from the Christian tradition. The first four weeks will feature reflections on different aspects of vocation and discernment given by a campus minister. The final four weeks will offer practical tools to bring to the discernment process. Feeding the Call is led by Sarah Belles (Methodist College Fellowship), Sid Druen (Reformed University Fellowship), Greg McIntyre (Canterbury Episcopal Fellowship), Stephanie Sorge Wing (Westminster Fellowship) and Karen Soos (Catholic Campus Ministry). Feel free to bring lunch.
