This Week in Spiritual Life

This Week in Spiritual Life
Week of August 21, 2017

Everyone is welcome at all Spiritual Life activities wherever you are on your spiritual journey.

We've had a beginning for Union's 2017-2018 academic year.  Everyone is on campus; we had a great Welcome Weekend for new students, an eclipse to kick off the semester, and classes have begun.


Spiritual Life has seen some growth in the past year, and we want to make sure you know about all the activities we have scheduled for you this semester.

Our first activity will be Eat Pray Fun, tomorrow evening (Thursday) at 6:00 PM in the Spiritual Life House.  We will be grilling burgers and hotdogs.  At Eat Pray Fun, we always have dinner, devotions, and games.  We will meet every week.

The Union College Spiritual Life House is at 207 Manchester Street, right across the street from the chapel, two doors down from the Stop & Go on the corner.  Union had the house painted just a couple weeks ago, and we don't have our signs back up yet.  We will have a neon OPEN sign in the window.

Our other weekly activities will start next week and will include:

Rev's Ugly Mug, Mondays, 4:00 - 5:30 PM
Free coffee and conversation about current events from a spiritual perspective.  You can take the shuttle van from the Student Center.  We leave at 4:00 for the Ugly Mug Coffee Shop (103 Knox Street), or you can meet us there.

Fellowship of Christian AthletesTuesdays, 8:00 PM, Heritage Conference Room
Fellowship of Christian Anybodies!

God at the Gazebo, Wednesdays, 8:00 PM

Music, devotions, and Bible study led by Rev. Bill Hughes, pastor at First United Methodist Church

Look forward to other weekly groups starting up, too.  We are working on a weekly Newman Club (Catholic students), an AlAnon group for students who have family and friends suffering from substance abuse, and an LGBTQ group.

Prayer List
We have an online prayer list at  We have reset it for the new academic year, so it's empty at the moment.  If you would like to add something to the Prayer List, just let me know.

We have so much in store for campus this year!  I hope you'll decide to become part of what's going on!

God bless!
