Westminster Church desires to see college students and young adults fall more deeply in love with Jesus and to equip them to live out their faith in every area of life.  Opportunities to learn and grow in Christ exist both both inside and outside the walls of our church.
Sunday Morning Fellowship
Every Sunday morning following the worship service, a time of church-wide fellowship takes place from 10:30 – 11:00 am. Everyone gathers in Perrin Hall to chat and catch up with friends over a cup of coffee or tea (and occasionally a delicious snack).  This is the perfect opportunity to meet new people or get in touch with one of our College Network staff members.
Education Hour on Sunday Mornings
Westminster’s Education Hour on Sunday mornings occurs between 11:00 am and Noon.  Young Adults are encouraged to attend any class which is of interest to them. Class offerings change approximately every 12 weeks, so there is always something new to learn.  This is a great way to connect with one another while being transformed by the power of the gospel.
Special Fellowship Events
Throughout the year, special events are planned to allow college students and young adults to gather together for a time of fellowship, food, and fun!  We’ve had progressive dinners, cook outs, and picnics all with unique and humorous twists and activities!  It’s a time to just hang out and get to know one another better.
Summer Fellowship Group
This group was started by young adults who are part of a local home school network and it open to anyone.  We’ll be discussing the book The Prodigal God by Tim Keller. Contact Jim McCaslin for more details.

Caring Hands College Student Ministry
We care about our college students!  To show our love to them, the Caring Hands team collects and assembles care packages several times a year.  We want these members to know that they are still a part of this Body, even though they may not be with us physically!
 
1-to-1 Discipleship
This is a very personal and effective way for you to grow in your faith. Josh and Jim do not meet with young women in this capacity, but would refer them to a trusted female leader within their ministry fellowship.
EUREKA! Bible Study
This weekly Bible Study is held on Wednesdays. To get involved, contact Josh at jthompson@ccojubilee.org.
 
Community Outreach
Jim and Josh are involved with several non-profit organizations that serve our local community, from kids ministry to adult ministry to hands-on service projects. As you engage out community in loving obedience to Christ, God will grow your character and help you connect with your giftedness! Outreach is coming alongside our neighbors and sharing our lives with them.  Join us!
