Religous Life at Andrew College

Spiritual Life
An important aspect of student life is a proper spiritual foundation. Wesley Fellowship, the Baptist Student Union and Fellowship of Christian Athletes are organizations that provide leadership in the religious life area of college. Interdenominational chapel services are held regularly.

In addition, local churches extend a cordial welcome to Andrew students. The minister of the Cuthbert United Methodist Church serves as the campus chaplain and is responsible for chapel services. The chaplain also serves as an advisor to Wesley Fellowship and is available for personal guidance.

Someone once said that the important questions in life are always short ones, like:

Who am I?
What is life?
Is there a God?
Where am I going?

Chapel Services on campus
The Thrive worship is held on Sunday night at 7:30 p.m. in the Jones Chapel, followed by a fellowship time.

This is a weekly meeting that is open to all faculty and students. We gather, pray, share, sing a song or two, eat together and enjoy fellowship as we encourage one another.
