CSF GROUPS

Every night of the week at the CSF building

CSF GroupsUK’s big. One thing we want to do at CSF is help make college feel a little smaller. That’s why we have CSF Groups. Dozens of small groups meet on campus each week to study the bible or a good book. Community service groups impact lives through picking up trash or serving a meal.

Bible studies. Shift groups. Guys, girls, co-ed and community service groups. Check out the list below for a complete schedule of CSF groups or scroll to the bottom to sign up. Meet new people, shrink UK.
