Sunday mornings in the Logos Lounge (L-1) college students come together to share in faith and process life opportunities, challenges, and questions together. Each week begins with a Bible study, devotions, and prayer. Then the floor will be open to discuss life, current events, and issues facing the church. In the midst of our discussions, we’ll seek to listen to and learn from what God’s Word reveals and to be respectful and supportive of one another. Come and be among “open hearts, open minds, and open doors.” Here at King Ave Campus Ministry ALL are Welcome!
