Welcome to Grace, Moundbuilders!

Grace is committed to being a part of campus, because campus is a part of us! We were founded almost 130 years ago by students and faculty of SC. The connection has lasted through the years. We are grateful to have many students, administrators, professors, coaches, and staff from campus join us for worship on Sunday mornings. Our hope is that during your time at SC you will find Grace to be a place where you can be a part of the Winfield community and grow in your faith in God and service to others. Come serve the community and worship with us, hang your hammock in our park (right before you get to College Hill Coffee), or join our Harry Potter and the Sacred Text college group.

SC Office Hours with Pastor Maddie

Throughout the year, Pastor Maddie hosts office hours to connect with SC students at her office at Grace. Whether you want somewhere to vent about school and life, a safe space to rest, or someone to talk to about faith, you are welcome! Feel free to call to office at 620-221-0618 to arrange a time or email Pastor Maddie at maddie@gracewinfield.com.

Harry Potter Book Study
Harry Potter and the Sacred Text is a book study for college students to see how God shows up in Harry Potter, in our lives, and in the world. We are currently meeting on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 PM outside at Grace UMC reading through “Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.” We will begin reading the third book soon! Contact Pastor Maddie for more information: maddie@gracewinfield.com.

Serve
Connect your faith with action! Our congregation’s identity is rooted in serving others. Check out our serve pages to learn more about ways to
volunteer and serve at church, on campus, or in the community! We also mission opportunities on our Facebook page, so be sure to like it to keep up with events. Another way to serve is to help lead in worship by serving as liturgist (reading Scripture), serving Communion, being an usher (passing the offerings plates), or being a greeter! Let Carly Redding, our student pastor, or Pastor Maddie know if you’re interested!

 

Builders of Grace
We have a College Care Team at Grace who works to offer hospitality to you all. You’ll see us at the watermelon feed after the Moundbuilding Ceremony, at various SC events, and hosting fun events at Grace. We provide welcome goodie bags for the incoming students, a Finals Pizza Party and game night at the end of every semester, and fun activities throughout the year. If you are interested in being a part of this committee, please email us at gumc@gracewinfield.com.

Foster Student Program
Our Foster Student Program is an awesome way for Builders to get to know Winfield a little better and have support in your home away from home. Your foster family will cheer you on at your events, take you to supper, or just be a friendly face if you need it. The program is what you make of it and we are so glad to be a part of your journey at SC! More details will be coming as the 2020-2021 school year approaches.
