COLLEGE LUNCH
Each week following our 11:00 worship service during the fall and spring semesters, we offer a free lunch to all college students in the Fellowship Hall. Join us for good food, fun, and fellowship.

SMALL GROUPS AND STUDIES

  • College Sunday School – This class involves college-age adults who participate in rotating studies that focus on integrating bible study with current social issues that are relevant to young adults.  Members participate in selecting study topics that may be of interest and they require no preparation prior to class.  The studies are led by adult members of UUMC.  Members also are invited to participate in mission, social, and community activities throughout the year. This class meets upstairs in the Trice Building in room 214.
  • Theology on Tap – Thursdays @ 7:30PM at The Chimes, 3357 Highland Rd.  Enjoy weekly discussion on the current events and how they intersect our faith and theology. Beverages on you!
  • Group Fitness –  All fitness levels welcome.  If interested contact Rev. Colleen Bookter, colleen@universitymethodist.org.
MISSIONS
  • Kids Hope – Volunteer one hour a week to mentor an elementary student at University Trace Elementary. Our church has partnered with this school for over 30 years. We hope you will consider caring on this great tradition. For more information on Kids Hope or how to get involved click here: Kids Hope or contact Shirley Flake at shirley@universitymethodist.org
  • Habitat for Humanity – Join us each fall as we meet the future home owner and work hard to build a home for those in need in our community.

website-banner-adopt-a-college-studentAre you looking for a home away from home or a family to connect to at University UMC? We will match up willing college students with University UMC families or individuals in an adoptive/mentor relationship for the duration of one school year. These relationships can take many forms – meals together, sitting together at church, a quiet place to study or unwind during the stressful part of the semester, etc. If you would like to be matched with a family, please  contact Rev. Colleen Bookter by emailing colleen@universitymethodist.org
