Small Groups

Ecclesiastes with Katie Jickling

Mondays at 8:00 p.m. in Babbitt

Ecclesiastes, from the first sentence forward, declares that life is meaningless. We'll explore that claim in this small old testament book, and in particular, how meaning in life (or lack thereof) relates to life at Hamilton.

 

Man Group with Caleb Williamson
Tuesdays at 5:00 p.m. in the Fireplace Lounge (Beinecke)

Man Group is a faith-based organization that seeks to define what it truly means to be a man in God's eyes, as opposed to the eyes of society. We challenge society's definition of manhood and look at the Bible to learn the essential qualities to becoming a righteous man. 

 

Finding God in Everything with Marta Antoniv
Tuesdays at 7:30 p.m. in Root 

We will focus on exploring one's faith and finding God in all aspects of life. Discovering more about one's spirituality nurtures a relationship with God that is ever-evolving and growing, whether you have believed in God your whole life, just started believing, or do not believe at all.

 

Women's Group with Janelly Chavez

Wednesdays at 8:00 p.m. in Kirkland 

Calling all women: young, old, short, tall...God loves you just the way you are! Come join Women's Group for a time of great conversation, activities, and even some amazing baked goodies.

 

Social Justice with Carrie Cabush
Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. in Babbitt 

We will be examing the concept of justice and its biblical foundations. We will put an emphasis on living out the biblical notion of justice by nurturing community and exploring service options on and off campus.

 

Bible Study with Emmerson Zhaime
Wednesdays at 9:00 p.m. in Kirkland

Also, each semester the Hamilton Christian Fellowship helps lead a weekend retreat with the Colgate Christian Fellowship to a beautiful cabin off campus or to a church.

Other Events

Over the past year HCF has held events ranging from Holiday Dinners and prayer walks to 12 hour fasts and a campus-wide Sock Hop. In addition, they have gone off campus to see movies like God's Not Dead and Heaven is for Real.
