Drop by Raithby Porch anytime between 9:30am-11am on Mondays for some coffee and to chat with Sara and other GCM students. We will have regular mugs for folks who want to stick around and to-go cups for anyone who needs to rush off to a morning class. Can't wait to see you there.
Community Dinner happens every week at Raithby House hosted by Guelph Campus Ministry and the Ecumenical Campus Ministry. Food is always free and is provided by our wonderful supporting Churches.
For the month of September, ECM & GCM will be hosting a discussion on Identity, Purpose, and Belonging directly following our community dinner. You don't need to attend dinner to come for the discussion or to stay for the discussion if you choose to come to dinner, but you are certainly welcome at both.
Church hops will be happening once a month and will take place at a variety of different local Christian churches. These hops are meant to support students in finding a church home and also in experiencing different ways of doing church.
Grad Group: GCM is the only Protestant Christian group on campus that specifically seeks out and welcomes graduate students. Grad students are welcome at all student programming but are also specifically invited to come together every so often for virtual or in-person grad student gatherings. Grad group evolves each semester based on the needs of the current grads – sometimes gatherings are more or less frequent, sometimes based around a certain topic or even a book discussion, and sometimes just a place to check-in and chat together about the unique joys and challenges of being Christian graduate students.
Bible Study: GCM has a rich tradition of hosting a weekly staff and faculty Bible Study. Graduate students are also welcome at this Bible Study which is currently focusing on the Book of Acts and meeting in-person on Thursdays over the lunch hour.
Campus Minister, Sara DeMoor, is always happy to meet with staff, faculty, and students for one-on-one pastoral care. These meetings can be focused on prayer, discussing a particular topic of spiritual growth, or even reading a book together. Please note that Sara is not a trained counselor and that pastoral care is not a substitute for professional mental health support.
