There are many ways to live out our faith in Christ. In Scripture we are reminded that “faith without works is dead.” In the days ahead, despite the busyness of studies, friends, family and work, put your faith into action. Join us for worship. Get involved in a project that counts with a local congregation. Live out what you believe in your relationships on and off campus. If you want to know more about any of the congregations featured on this web page or if you just need to talk to someone who will listen call the individual church offices. We are here to help you in your faith journey and to walk with you during these post secondary years of education.
