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!
