Help us connect with students

Help needed!  The Presbyterian Campus Ministry at WVU is an Ukirk ministry charged with reaching, teaching, and loving college students so they may be lifelong followers of Jesus Christ.  We meet weekly during the school year (Wednesdays, 7 pm, at Campus Ministry Center, downtown).  We need YOUR help identifying students who will be attending WVU in the fall (new, returning, transfer, etc).  Here are ways you can help.

  1. Send us the name, email, and phone number of students that you know are coming to WVU to wvupsf@gmail.com.  We do not receive names from the university about interested students.  So, our best source for reaching students are your referrals.   Also, you can share students' names with other campuses through out the country by going to http://www.ukirk.org/ and clicking on ministries, then find the state and contact info for referrals.  All ministries need help connecting with students.
  2. Encourage students, congregation members, and families to follow us on twitter (@WVU_Kirk) and like us on Facebook (https://www.facebook.com/groups/WVUkirk/), have interested students sign up to receive info here:  http://goo.gl/forms/T74uxzIPaSIiGF6q2.
  3. Share all this information in your church newsletter and announce that the Presbyterian Ministry will have a welcome event on August 17 at 7 pm at the Campus Ministry Center (293 Willey Street, downtown Morgantown).
  4. Encourage your students to make this ministry a priority in their lives while on campus.  The majority of participants in the ministry are here because pastors, friends, youth leaders, and others told them how valuable the Presbyterian campus ministry is in college.
  5. Fill out this survey to help us better serve you in the coming year http://goo.gl/forms/1gcsFyHmi4Mx3GJ93

Ash Wednesday and Lent 2016

Ash Wednesday is February 10 and marks the beginning of the season of Lent -- a time of reflection and self examination that prepares our hearts and minds for Holy Week (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday) and Easter.  Lent is the 40 days (not counting Sundays) between Ash Wednesday and the Saturday before Easter (Holy Saturday).  The 40 days of Lent are to mirror Jesus' 40 days in the wilderness.

You are invited to join the PSF at FPC Morgantown at 7 pm on Wed. 2/10 for a service of reflection and forgiveness including readings, music, meditation, and anointing with oil. PSF members will meet at the Campus Ministry Center (293 Willey Street) by 6:45 pm to walk over together to church for worship at 7 pm.  You can also meet us at the church (456 Spruce Street).  After worship, we will head to Lotsa Mozza on High Street for dinner.  Please bring $3 to offset the cost of dinner.

Throughout Lent and into the season of Easter, we will be reading together, Accidental Saints by Nadia Bolz Weber.  Our first reading group will be 5 pm on Sunday, February 14 at the Harless Center.  There will be dinner at 6 pm for anyone interested in staying.  There are still 2 books to purchase for $10.

The PSF will be teaching Sunday School at First Pres Morgantown Sunday Feb. 14, 21, 28 and going on a retreat the weekend of March 11 - 13 to the Greenbank Observatory with time for hanging out and reflecting on Christian Vocation.  There are talks of a road trip for Spring Break.

Want to learn more about Lent?

Its a new year!

YAY!! WELCOME BACK!! I look forward to seeing each of you on Wednesday evening at the Campus Ministry Center around 7 pm. (293 Willey Street, downtown, cream and green house).
We will have roast beef sandwiches, twice baked potatoes, and green beans for dinner. We will have an epiphany themed worship and time to gather for the semester.
Looking ahead, our semester will include a study of christian practices from the Celebration of Discipline (Foster), we will prepare for leading worship in April. Will has suggested a retreat for March at the Greenbank Observatory, there may be an additional retreat on vocation in April! We will crowd source our study of scripture and liturgy for the worship on April 3. Your interns will have planning meetings, look for more info. We hope to paint bowls on Jan. 31.
Most importantly, see you on Wed. Jan. 13 at 7 pm for dinner and worship.
Also, First Pres Morgantown has a great Sunday school on Islam and Christianity each Sunday starting at 10 am.
ONE MORE THING -- the ministry staff is reading Nadia Bolz Weber's accidental saints as part of our study this spring -- if you want to join us in discussing and reading it, let me know.
