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 8:30 p.m.

We offer a fresh approach to liturgy, in which the whole service teaches the message of our weekly Scripture selection. Songs, prayers, readings, 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.

Group is advised by the Rev. Kelsey Rorem, MDiv, associate director of Campus Ministries.

During 2016–17, we will study the same book of the Bible together each quarter. Join us as we immerse ourselves in these life-changing texts:

Autumn Quarter 2016: Gospel of Luke
Winter Quarter 2017: Jeremiah
Spring Quarter 2017: Acts of the Apostles
