Spiritual Life

Sweet Briar is committed to all aspects of students’ lives, including their spiritual wellness. Our chaplain helps coordinate a spiritual life team that offers a wide variety of programs and activities to help guide students on their spiritual journey.

Cru

Cru is a caring community passionate about connecting people to Jesus. At Sweet Briar College, we welcome all students to come join us for our weekly meetings.

We offer Bible study, exploration of spiritual disciplines such as prayer and fasting, service opportunities during spring break and over the summer, socials and occasional worship events with Lynchburg Cru (serving the greater Lynchburg community).

Weekly meetings are held every Tuesday at 4:30 p.m. in Johnson Dining Room.

The Book of Acts gives us a fascinating insight into the life, fellowship, and worship of the early church, as it developed post-Pentecost. The six verses that form the backbone of this study are very familiar, often referred to as ‘Holy Habits’, and are always worth spending a little time with, as they speak to us about our own ‘habits’ and how they might change, or adapt, to the greater benefit of God’s call on us to share our faith and make disciples ‘of every nation’.
