Have you tried looking at different churches? Or finding a group on the college campus to get involved in?
Yeah, that’s basically what my whole semester has consisted of—and not just casually looking for stuff when I feel like it, but really actively looking. I tried a few new churches when I got home in June and ended up going to my current one right before school started and it was like a huge breath of fresh air, me and my sister both just felt so relieved and happy to be there and I think it’s the first time besides my church in Ireland that I’ve ever looked forward to church on Sunday and wished that the service wasn’t over. They are a big, multi-campus mission-oriented church so they have a lot of resources but people aren’t big on just mingling… so I think I’m gonna evaluate things after I go on this outreach retreat with all their college ministries this weekend. If I can make some good connections, awesome, if not I guess I’ll see what else is out there.
And yeah… I used to be a leader for Cru but some of the people there have just turned it into an exclusive clique since I’ve been gone and they don’t advertise/welcome people in anymore. I’m familiar with almost every ministry they offer but since it’s a southern, Baptist sorta school they don’t really have anything that’s student run and more non-denom/a mix which is what I like. Thanks for your ideas though, it helped me think about each aspect a little bit more! :) I just feel like I’m stuck in a giant rut regarding this whole thing basically haha.
