What We Do:
 
Agape Nights: Bi-Weekly on Saturdaysdsc_0140
Agape is an evening for all students of the ministry to gather and seek God in a time of extended prayer and worship. These events foster community and centering on Christ as we make room to pursue God together. Agape is the heartbeat of our campus ministry, and a wonderful opportunity to get to know who we are! Agape normally takes place at 7:30pm at Chapin Chapel on Amherst College’s campus. Check our Facebook page for updated dates and locations!
 
Community Events: Bi-Weekly on Saturdays
On alternating Saturdays, students gather in small groups by campus or as one large, Five College community for fun community events. These change each time; groups may grab dinner together, go on a hike in the woods, do a local service project, or head to a bowling alley. These weeks are focused on growing together in intentional community. 
 
Growth Groups: Weekly on Each Campusdsc_9259
