Highlighted Events

Thursday, Feb. 1, 2018, 9:30 pm - 10:30 pm
Alumni are invited to join current students at Shout! Shout is an expressive, meditative evening worship service marked by praise singing, personal reflection, and prayer with other students and alumni. The atmosphere is low-light and low-tech, but high in participation. The music is acoustic and earthy, and the devotions are testimonial in style, led by students from the CUI community.
