Students, faculty and staff are all invited to participate. Participants are especially needed to fill the early morning and late evening time slots. Pray on your own or with your roommate, your housemates, your colleagues or your small group. The ministry leaders have prepared the Quiet Place in the lower level of Kulp with resources to guide your prayer, as well as hot refreshments.

Are you interested in working with a small group of dedicated GC students to craft meaningful and diverse chapel and worship opportunities? These positions call for your thoughtfulness, creativity, sensitivity to God and your willingness to listen carefully to the faith experiences of others (and about 2 hours a week). All applications are due by this Friday.
