Weekly Gatherings

You belong at Pres House! Our weekly gatherings are a great way to make the huge campus smaller and make meaningful friendships with people who can support you and pray for you during the semester. You will also learn something new and have a chance to grow deeper in your faith.

Check out the weekly gatherings schedule for this fall below. Use the image slider to get more information about each gathering!

Mindfulness
Led by: Evan

Mindfulness group is a space for people to explore different forms of guided meditation and mindfulness. No prior experience is necessary to participate! Our time is divided into two parts: first, we engage in a mindfulness practice, and after that, we discuss our experiences of the practice together.

Freshman Connection
Led by: Nii

Designed specifically for first-year students, Freshman Connection is a great way to make friends and grow spiritually in your first year of college. We'll talk life, school, faith, and plenty more!

Round Two
Led by: Erica

It's not always easy to find your people in college; especially if you've spent most of your college years living through a pandemic. Round Two is your second chance for connection. Come find yourself among friends in our small group made for sophomores, juniors, and seniors!

Midweek Morsels

If you need a midweek pick-me-up, we've got you covered. Come munch on free baked treats like homemade chocolate chip cookies and donuts from Greenbush Bakery. Drop by whenever you can and stay for as long as you'd like to chat, play games, and be nourished!

Faith and Antiracism
Led by: Nii

Learn the truth about the American church's complicity in racism and explore in community what it means to be a Christian and an antiracist. Our time will be guided by Dr. Jemar Tisby's best-selling book and video series, "The Color of Compromise."

Grad Coffee Hour
Led by: Andrea

A time for graduate students to connect over coffee and tea and enjoy casual conversation.

Created to Create
Led by: Allyson and Macayla

Calling artists of all kinds and skill levels! Join us as we spend time creating together. Art comes in many forms, and we welcome all varieties of artistic expression. We may spend our time working on independent projects, collaborating together, or trying something new altogether!

How to Study the Bible
Led by: Ava & Elizabeth

Reading the Bible can spark a lot of questions. We believe the best way to tackle those questions is in community. So bring your questions and let's learn how to study the Bible together!

Music Team
Led by: Natalie

Looking for an opportunity to make music AND make friends? Maybe Music Team is for you! Members of the Music Team rotate in leading the community in worship on Sundays, but you don't have to be a person of faith to join and lead. All kinds of musicians are welcome. If you're interested, email natalie@preshouse.org for more info!

Practice of Play
Led by: Ben and Hailey

Play is more than just something we do for fun. It's a spiritual discipline that helps us cultivate creativity and joy. So join us as we play together! This is a fun, spontaneous group that engages in all sorts of playful activities: board games, scavenger hunts, outdoor activities, and more.

Queerly Beloved
Led by: Becca

An affirming space for LGBTQ+ (and questioning) members of our community to connect. Led by queer people of faith and open to all who find themselves at the intersections of LGBTQ+ identity and spirituality. Regardless of your current beliefs, you are welcome as your whole self at Queerly Beloved.

QB meetings are gently structured as a place to connect and unwind. For more structured, topic-driven discussion on key LGBTQ+ faith topics, check out the Queer Students of Faith series at The Crossing, co-sponsored by Pres House.

Freshman Connection
Led by: Nii

Designed specifically for first-year students, Freshman Connection is a great way to make friends and grow spiritually in your first year of college. We'll talk life, school, faith, and plenty more!
