Faith Groups & Support

gc.fall.2013.253

Goshen College offers plenty of opportunities to explore your faith in one-on-one and group settings.

Table Grace

Table Grace is comprised of a group of upper-level students and first-years who meet in the apartments or small group houses for food, games and friendship to help ease the first years’ transition to college life. These small groups welcome the new students into a mentoring community and provide a place where the students can meet with God and peers.

Pastoral Care

Campus Ministers are available to support, guide and comfort you. You are welcome to contact campus ministries anytime you need spiritual support to get you through a rough time.

Spiritual Friendship/Direction

Some local spiritual directors offer special student discounts. Students can also be guided in the practice of peer-to-peer spiritual friendship.

Grief Support Group

Have you recently experienced the death of someone close to you? Depending upon student interest and need, we can facilitate a support group that will meet throughout the semester to listen to one another and to lend support to each other. Contact Campus Ministries for more information.

Catholic Student Association

CSA is a student group who meets to provide support for one another in their faith development.

Goshen-Greencroft Connection

GGC is a mentoring opportunity in which a Goshen College student is paired with a resident of Greencroft, a nearby continuing care retirement community.

Life after College Retreat/Chats

LAC is for upper level students who want intentional and reflective conversations about transitioning to life after college with peers and a GC employee.

Retreats (Personal and Small Group)

The campus pastors can help you develop your own retreat and suggest various local places of interest to hold your retreat … a great floor activity! Possible locations: College Cabin, Brunk’s Cabin, Merry Lea.
