(FG): These small groups are some of the ‘bread and butter’ of college ministry.  Led by interns and students, they will take the text/sermon talked about on Wednesdays at RUF and discuss it further for the purpose of growing in knowledge and understanding of the scriptures, finding practical application for our daily lives, and developing relationships.  There are two guys and girls fellowship groups offered during the week in order to accommodate the busyness of college life.

“The gospel is not something partial or piecemeal: it takes in the whole life, the whole of history, the whole world.  It tells us about the creation and the final judgment and everything in between.  It is a complete, whole view of life, and many are unhappy in the Christian life because they have never realized that this way of life caters for the whole of man’s life and covers every eventuality in his experience.  There is no aspect of life but that the gospel has something to say about it.  The whole of life must come under its influence because it is all-inclusive; the gospel is meant to control and govern everything in our lives.”

               -D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Spiritual Depression

Gospel Life (aka, Salt) is a 22 lesson study targeted for Sophomores that covers topics in theology and the Christian faith.  Broken up into two parts, 'What God Has Done In Christ: What's going on?' and 'How We Experience The Gospel: How do I get involved?,' we will look together at the story of scripture and God's mission to redeem all things.  This is a great place for those looking to grow in their understanding and knowledge of the faith as well as enter into good discussion and question asking.
