7:25-9:25pm, Sunday nights during semesters. That adds up to 30 weeks during the year. Don’t worry, we’re not gonna be laying heavy on you when life gets crazy and you can’t make it. All we’re asking is that you aim with intent at being a part of our Sunday nights in 2023.
Commit to it as though it’s a primary spiritual commitment for you. Not the only one, but a primary one. This is sort of about the posture with which you approach it. We’re not asking for an overly time- or energy-heavy commitment. We’re inviting you into a meaningful commitment. So, consider how you would make & keep space in your life for it.
Commit to pray regularly for the Student Soul congregation and the students that God is reaching through this ministry. Again, this is about your own spiritual posture more than anything.
Show up to the service with a sense of anticipation, hope, and excitement. God is in the business of life change! So come expectant and ready. And that doesn’t mean you should fake it. It’s just that we think you’re allowed to be tired, or low, even struggling, and still hopeful in the midst of it all. Even a mustard seed of expectation will be enough.
Be open to engage in new relationships, especially with students. This might mean a readiness to model aspects the Christian life in a real way which is true to your story. It might mean contributing to a healthy culture of conversation. It might mean being willing to journey alongside others, wherever they’re at with faith. However you put it, it’s about being present with people and present with God!
