We love university students at Downtown.  You add energy and excitement to our family!  We hope you will do more than just attend worship and Bible class.  We hope you will reach out and get to know some of our families by introducing yourself, and offering to serve in one of our ministries.  We know college is a busy time, but you will find the investment of a little time in God's work to be very rewarding for yourself and for others.  So jump in!!

Worship and Class Opportunities

univ class aud

  • Sunday morning worship services — 8 and 10:45 a.m. in Family Life Center. See "What can I expect when I visit?" for more information about the worship services.
  • Sunday morning University class — 9:30 a.m. in Auditorium. Coffee, juice and donuts provided.
  • Sunday night communion/praise service — 8:30 p.m. in Family Life Center (except during university breaks). One of the most unique services at Downtown is the 8:30 p.m. communion/praise service on Sunday nights. This service is very popular with university students, often reaching attendance of 900. Come and experience this awesome time of worship!
  • On Sunday evenings, we love to have students join a small group that meets in a home. This gives students a chance to know other members of the congregation in a small group, giving them a "family away from home." There is also a worship service that meets at the building on Sunday nights.
  • On Wednesday nights, our university students usually join a small group Bible study in the home of a professor or church member, or they meet with our members at 6:30 p.m. for Bible classes at the building.
