The Lee University spring U-Church season will continue with the student-led event, “Come to the Table: An Evening of Worship,” on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center.  

“Come to the Table” is a unique worship event that is designed and led by students. Attendees encounter many diverse styles of student-led worship, including music by LeeU Worship and other special guests, elements of spoken word, dance, art, and Communion.  

The event will also feature a new original song written by members of the U-Church planning team and LeeU Worship. 

According to members of the creative student planning team, the focus of the evening is inspired by “the deep love our Heavenly Father has for us as expressed in Ephesians 3:16-19 (NIV), which states, “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” 

All are welcome to join together in worship and the taking of Communion. U-Church is a free, non-ticketed event open to students, alumni, and the community. Seating is first come, first served. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. 

Childcare is available for all who attend. Contact Jill Barnett at jillbarnett@leeuniversity.edu for more information.
