"Celebrating God and all of His diversity through Jesus Christ by reaching out to our neighbors in our community"

"And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity" -Colossians 3:14"

Why unity right now? Many of you have been following close to the news about what is going around the world and in particular-our nation (Colorado's high school shooting and the deadly tornados that swept our heartland!) Well, as neighbors of the Morris Campus and community, many concerned students feel the need to unite together and break down all types of barriers (racial, deonominations, geographic, etc...) that we can be a more of a family commUNITY through the love of Christ. As a small part of the global community, we should ask ourselves what is it going to take to bring our community together?

Are we going to wait for a disaster to unite us?

-Organizers:

Alpha & Omega, Assembly of God, Free Church Campus Ministry, InterVarsity Christian Fellowship, Morris Community Church Campus Ministry , and other various outside community ministries
