Fall 2017 Programs


Would you like to see something happen that you don't see here? Most of ECM's programs are shaped and led by students. If you're interested in starting a program, contact Christian Watkins at revwatkins@k-state.edu.

Dinner and Discussion

Every other Sunday evening from 7-8:15 PM, starting September 10. This semester we are focusing on the question "How do you take the Bible seriously but not literally? Join us as we discuss tough biblical questions and explore progressive Christianity. A home cooked meal is provided for the evening, which could range from make your own personal size pizza to breakfast for supper to spaghetti.

For more information contact Kowan Russell at billyrussell@ksu.edu or Mattie O'Boyle at mattieob6@ksu.edu.

Real Food Lunch

If you’re free this semester on Fridays between 11:30 and 1:00 p.m. come to the ECM Campus Center and enjoy a “Real Food Lunch” with friends, old and new.  The idea for a “Real Food Lunch” grew out of conversations in Spring 2010 among several ECM student leaders, who wanted to combine their love of spending time with friends with their growing commitment to eating healthier and more diverse foods.  So they came up with this idea to offer a no-fee-donation-only meal each week at ECM where everyone is welcome, featuring as much locally grown, fresh produce as possible.  Participants can help with the chores of setting up beforehand, preparing the meals with food purchased via donations and cleaning up afterwards.

Brewing on Belief

During the school year on Wednesdays at 8:30pm. We've been meeting at Bluestem Bistro, but follow the facebook page for up-to-the-minute locations. Come join us for some good times with friends and some great discussion on a variety of current topics and some delving into the Bible. Oh, and some enjoyment of adult beverages for the 21+ crowd along the way!

Money Management for Rock Stars: How to Rock out and Still Pay Rent

Every other Tuesday, starting September 12, for five sessions. Even Rock Stars have bills to pay! Find out how you can do the things you want (like buy concert tickets, keep up on the latest fashion trends, or travel during break) without spending yourself into the poor house. Check out the facebook page for more information. This is the first in a series of courses on practical ways to think about money, for people that would rather think about anything but money.
