More than you can imagine

All of us, in our honest moments, would admit we are looking for something fun to occupy our spare time and friends to do life with.  In a more subtle way, often in way that we are not even aware of, we are looking for something to believe in, to have faith in.  That could be a degree, a job, a relationship, entertainment, a future spouse, money, sports, sex, or even video games.  Where fun and friendship are often easier to come by, faith can be much harder to find, after all we have been burned in the past by putting our trust in the wrong things.


Here at the Common Place Church College Ministry we love to have fun and develop lasting and life changing friendships.  We also believe that developing and exploring faith should be fulfilling, impactful, and done in a way that allows for dialogue in a safe environment.  


So welcome, as a college student make yourself at home here at Common Place.  You'll find a wide variety of opportunities for fun, finding friends, and a community where you can find a robust and resilient faith.

College Bible Studies

So what is a "Bible Study" anyways?  Glad you asked.  First it is a community of college students trying to find and have "Fun, Friendship, and Faith."   Second it is a safe place to ask questions, express doubts, and find encouragement about identity, relationships, and future life dreams and aspirations.  Thirdly it is a place to grow in your personal understanding of Jesus directly from the Bible itself.  Join us!

Worship @ the Roxy

At the Roxy Theater, Sunday 10am, is our Common Place Church service. I know it may have been awhile or that maybe you've never been at all and that it can be easy to perceive it as irrelevant. Let me just say that you need to give it a shot, that it is relevant, and can bring incredible meaning and purpose to life. Attached is a photo of the Roxy Theater, right where the red dot is where the college students connect and sit together (socially distanced of course), middle back section. If you need a ride or have questions send us a text - 814.826.4727. Dress is casual and the overall experience is laidback. So come out and have some fun, develop friendships, and discover a life changing faith,
