Resources for our community during the COVID-19 Response

Campus Ministry will continue to be here to accompany you and we will continue to offer resources and opportunities for connection, prayer, reflection, and community through our website, online meetings and social media pages. Just because we are apart doesn't mean we can't stay connected!

Continuing Connection

Campus Ministry staff is available remotely for support and spiritual conversations during weekdays 9am - 5pm. To reach out to specific staff members, you can find their contact information under About Us.

We will be providing avenues to connect with the communities you’ve built during this year, including the possibility of zoom virtual meetings with some of our small group programs.  We’ll reach out with details on these meetings to individual program participants. 

We’ll stay in touch!

Prayer for These Uncertain Times

Let us pray for all those impacted by the virus and this disruption.  Let us be most generous towards those most vulnerable around us.  Let us pray for healthcare workers and first responders in their service to us all.
