This group meets on Sunday nights from 6:00-8:00 PM in the REC. Meetings are very laid back, the first part of the night consisting simply of hanging out together and enjoying each other's company! The second part of the night generally involves some type of topical presentation (e.g. Bible themes, Saints, Social topics).
