Chris Owens, Leader     –       Room 115

This is a non-denominational discussion Bible-based study featuring the teachings of Dr. John Stott and others in the International Evangelical Movement.  Dr. Stott was an English cleric in the Anglican tradition from the latter part of last century.  We will explore the premise espoused by Protestant minister Martyn Lloyd-Jones in the 1960’s that “true Christian fellowship requires evangelical views on central topics…”  We will seek God’s leadership in dealing with young adult life in a safe and non-judgmental setting.

The group is focused on the issues confronting student life at UVa, but we gladly welcome all regardless of age, education, or church affiliation.

Study materials and reference copies of the New International Version of the Bible are provided.  Coffee and pastries will be served.

 

Help Needed!

We need volunteers to provide a light supper on Sunday evenings
for the Youth Group and Jubilate
beginning Sunday, August 28.
There will be a signup sheet in the narthex or the first floor lobby.

Contact Alba Beasley for more information.

Intersect C’ville

IntersectWhat happens when God’s kingdom intersects our Charlottesville community? What could it mean for us to be agents of Christ’s love and justice in our community? What impact can our faith community make in our city? How does faith intersect with the way we live our lives?

These questions don’t have simple answers—and we’re not looking for simple answers. We gather on Sunday evenings to wrestle with these questions and explore how our faith intersects with the needs of our community. Each month will have a different topic, exploring the theological underpinnings of our involvement and engaging with community agencies that are at already at work in these areas. The last Sunday evening of each month is a participatory time of worship that culminates our discussion. Faith is not merely a set of beliefs; our hope for these evenings is to find the ways that reflection, action, and worship are all interrelated as our faith is lived out in this community.


When: Sundays, 5:00-6:00pm, followed by a free, home-cooked dinner. We begin September 4.

Who: Undergrads, grad students, young adults, not-so-young adults, youth. Those concerned about our city, those with questions, those seeking a thoughtful community of faith, those hoping to make a difference in Charlottesville. You. All are welcome!

Where: University Baptist Church, in our Fellowship Hall (down the steps from the small parking lot by West Main St.)

Youth Retreat at Smith Mountain Lake

This past weekend, 19 youth and 4 adults enjoyed a wonderful retreat at Smith Mountain Lake. We played, swam, kayaked, paddle-boarded, canoed, flipped off of an inner tube pulled behind the boat at top speed, and ate a lot of delicious food. But most importantly, we took 24 hours out of the back-to-school craze and all the stressors inherent in that transition, to just enjoy life. We spent the weekend talking and playing together, and took time to rest, breathe, and appreciate the wonder of God in our natural surroundings and in each other.

Food Help Needed on Sunday Evenings starting August 30th.

VolunteersNeededHandsUP
