WELCOME COLLEGE STUDENTS AND YOUNG ADULTS!
Peoples Church Campus Ministry is a welcoming place to explore your faith and grow alongside other students; many of us Christian, some of us wondering, all of us welcome. The Peoples Church is a multi-denominational worship community that gathers right across the street from MSU and has a proud history of celebrating that we are part of the MSU and East Lansing community by welcoming and supporting our students. Peoples Church Campus Ministry, open to undergrads, graduate students, and young adults, offers weekly programs, special events focused on fun and service, and worship at the church. You are always welcome to be yourself here as you worship God and find fellowship with other young Christians with faith questions and hopes of their own. Just as our college experience is uniquely our own, so is our Christian journey.
Whether you are looking for a group to belong to, a place to serve, a worship service to attend or a space to feel welcome and meet other students, Peoples Church Campus Ministry invites you to be part of us.
With fall classes starting soon, we are gearing up for a wonderful year together! Below is a good overview of our regular weekly offerings and be sure to check out our events for special programs. You are welcome, whoever you are and wherever you are on your faith journey. Please contact me, Betsy, with any questions. I am here to welcome you!
All weekly events take place at The Peoples Church, conveniently located close to the north side of the MSU campus. We can't wait to welcome you!

WEDNESDAY EVENINGS: DINNER & BIBLE STUDY
5:30-7:30 p.m. - Peoples Church Campus Ministry gathers in Friendship Hall on the church's mail floor for a free, community meal. After dinner, we move to The Lounge for conversational Bible Study that is open to people in every stage of their faith journey. We will study the passages that will be preached on the following Sunday as a way of enriching our worship experience and understanding. Our style of Bible Study invites questions and answers, conversation and wonderings. We apply the scripture to our lives and experiences and learn from God and one another. And, you'll get a freshly prepared dinner as well!
WEDNESDAY EVENINGS: WEDNESDAY NIGHT LIVE!
We don't have specific Campus Ministry offerings during Wednesday Night Live!, but you are welcome to join us for the Adult Education programs, or volunteer with our Children and Youth programs.
