Kent Chi Alpha is community of college students from many different backgrounds committed to growing in our love of God and others. We love each other with a different kind of love: a love that stems from God’s love in us, causing us to treat each other like family.
what we do
Core groups are small groups that hold something similar to a Bible study every week. They allow deeper relationships to grow and really encourage living life on life with each other. This means having a safe group and place that is there for you through the ups and downs of life. We have female groups, male groups, and a co-ed group. This allows you to choose the group that fits you and your life right now.
Our weekly services take place on Thursdays at 7pm. At a normal service you can expect to see is a group of people sitting in rows of seats and a setup at the front of the room. At the beginning of service we will typically do worship (though sometimes this will happen at the end of service). Worship includes a group of students up front singing and playing instruments and lasts around 15 to 20 minutes. We do this as a way to praise God and take a moment to thank him. We also see this in scripture, Psalms 100:2 “Worship the Lord with gladness, come before him with joyful songs.” After worship happens, we will have someone go up for announcements, this can include weekend events and other things that are going on. After announcements we have our Pastor Nicole come up to say her message. A message typically lasts around 30 minutes and in it we look at different parts of the Bible and how we can apply it to our lives.
Most weeks after our weekly service we have an after-service activity planned. These allow for you to get to know other people in Chi Alpha that may not be in your core group. We also have weekend activities throughout each month that are a great way to make new friends and take a break from the stress of school. Check out our “Calendar” tab to see what’s on the schedule and invite some friends!
who we are
At Chi Alpha, our roots are established in the ways and the truths of God. We ground ourselves in who God is, and what He’s done, which we find in the The Bible.
At the core of Chi Alpha is community. We believe the Gospel is best experienced in community with others. You do not have to be a Christian to be a part of the Chi Alpha community. We are a diverse community, made up of people from different ethnicities, cultures, backgrounds, and life experiences, with the common goal of reflecting the beauty of God through being unified in diversity.
As a community, we have a common goal of branching out to reach our campus, nation, and world the love and truth of Jesus.
At Chi Alpha we love to have fun! As a community we regularly offer a variety of events that are open for all to join.
