Covenant Reformed Christian Fellowship (CRCF) is the college ministry of Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church. We are a group of young people seeking to grow in our faith and knowledge of God as we study God’s word, the Bible.
But as you know, the Bible is a controversial book. Some are willing to die for what it says, others think it’s hogwash.
This makes us think…
How can so many different interpretations of the Bible exist? Can they all be correct? What is the proper way to read the Bible?
Tough questions. Especially when you consider the great variety of texts that are contained within the Bible. There’s everything from poetry to genealogies, from heavenly visions to earthly love songs—all of it written in times long ago.
So, this year CRCF is dealing with these questions head on. And we’re getting the answers from the Bible itself. We’re learning about the science of hermeneutics—the principles of interpretation—and practicing our own interpretive skills along the way.
We want you to have confidence that you can read and understand the Bible—on its own terms. We hope you’ll join us.
We’ve been meeting since 2011 and have grown to a group of about fifteen. Most of us are UA students, but not all.
We’re led by Pastor Christopher Chelpka, a local ordained minister who graduated from Westminster Seminary California with a Master of Divinity in 2010. He is the pastor of Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church, our sponsoring congregation, and is a gifted teacher who puts his heart into helping students with their unique struggles and questions.
We meet each Wednesday from 6:30 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. in the UA Modern Languages Building, Room 306. We also plan fun events throughout the year, like our trip to California this year.
You can see our 2014–2015 schedule right here.
So, whether you are curious about Christianity, want to grow as a Christian, or are looking for some Christian friends who are serious about their faith, we encourage you to come join us. We’d love to get to know you.
