Shades College

“Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers.” 

Psalm 1:1-3

AN IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM SHADES COLLEGE

Due to COVID-19 and the measures being taken around the country to prevent it's continued spread, Shades College will be postponing all our weekly programming until further notice. For information on how you can still stay connected as a college student during this time, check out our interactive Bible Studies below.

Fresh

Are you an incoming college freshman? Fresh is a one-day intensive to help equip you for life as a college student. It's a chance for you to hear from students who've gone before you, experts on different areas of life and faith, and get introduced to our ministry.

Our desire is to serve you well as you make this transition. Click the link below to register for this unique event!

Summer Interactive Bible Studies 

Although we may not be able to meet in person, our desire as a ministry is to remain connected to you - no matter where you are. To do this, we are excited to offer Interactive Bible Studies at various times during the week that enable students to video chat through Zoom into a Shades College Bible Study. In these studies, we will pray together, check on one another, and study scripture together. Studies are open and you can join at any time - so be sure to sign up and stay connected! 

Summer 2020 Interactive Bible Studies:

  • Tuesdays @ 3PM - The Book of Jonah
  • Wednesdays @ 8PM - The Book of Hebrews
  • Thursdays @3PM - Rhythms of Grace
