If you’ve recently started college in Houston and are looking for opportunities to fellow students that share your faith, then why not head to one of these fantastic student focused events?
Starting your new college life can be a trying time, you may find that you’re a long way from home and without the help of your usual support network – thankfully, there are plenty of churches and Christian faith groups that organise open, affordable events that often involve some free food – which is always a great way to market to college students! Many Christian student events are advertised throughout campuses, but you’ll also find a good deal of them online too.
If you’re feeling a little isolated, or lonely, then check out one of these events and make some new friends along the way:
If you haven’t found a church that you feel comfortable praising in then it can be a good idea to simply drop in to a few casual meetings first. The University of Houston is home to thousands of Christian students, many of whom will drop into their regular devotional during their time studying on campus. You don’t need to be a member of the university to jump in, but it will obviously help if you’re a student.
Date: 7:30pm, every Friday Location: Student Center South Astrodome Room, University of Houston
