During the semester, join students for contemporary hymns, devotions, and reflection during our Student Fellowship. It's at 8:30 PM on Wednesdays, and snacks are provided.
There are also Men/Women Bible studies as well as various Bible study groups with Internationals. Check our calendar to see if any interest you.
At Memorial, we have "Peer Ministers". They are students who not only have a knack for welcoming and listening, but recieve additonal training through retreats and weekly meetings. These students share the love of Jesus by establishing contact with students who have attended services and inviting others to worship services and other events at Memorial.
Peer Ministers are hired on a semester basis. If you're interested, contact one of our pastors to begin discerning application.
We are working on developing an Alumni Network. Please keep in touch through our website!
