This is not your standard “songs and sermon” program. Group is a holistic service, an immersion of the body, mind, and heart in the Christian story.

Group is SPU’s Wednesday-night worship service that meets in Upper Gwinn Commons at 8:00 p.m.

We offer a fresh approach to liturgy, in which the whole service teaches the message of our weekly theme. Songs, prayers, scripture, art, short reflections from campus pastors and student leaders, and other activities help us imagine our own role in God’s story of redemption for the world.

For the 2017-18 academic year, we will follow a rhythm of Connect, Reflect, and Encounter God. In this we will hear from guest speakers, engage in small group conversation, and dig into scripture as a means of engaging with the quarterly theme. The theme for Spring 2018 is "More than a Feeling: Compassion in Action."
