University Ministries: Worship


Group is SPU's Wednesday night worship service that meets in Upper Gwinn Commons at 8:30pm. Group is a holistic service that provides an opportunity for students to be immersed in the Christian story with our bodies, minds, and hearts. As we have tried to think beyond the standard "songs+sermon" model for worship services, what has emerged is a fresh approach to liturgy where  the whole service teaches the message of our scripture selection for the week. Instead of long sermons, most weeks at Group it is the songs, prayers, readings, art, and other activities that help us imagine our own role in God’s story of redemption for the world. Each service also includes a short reflection on the scripture passage from one of your campus pastors and members of the student leadership team. Group is advised by Associate Director of Campus Ministries, Kelsey Rorem.  

This year (2015-2016), we'll will be studying the same book of the Bible together each quarter.  Please join us as we immerse ourselves in these life-changing texts:

Autumn: 1 & 2 Samuel > Winter: Mark > Spring: Hebrews
