Orange Sunday @ Laurel Church of Christ

The CSC is sponsored by Laurel Church of Christ which meets a mile from campus. Every new school year, it is their tradition to welcome students and their families to “Orange Sunday.”

Coffee & donuts are offered downstairs in the “Orange Room” at 10am between services (8:45am and 11am). And yes, almost everyone wears orange!

If you plan to get there on your own, the address is 3457 Kingston Pike. Otherwise, we offer a shuttle service every week from the CSC to Laurel at 9:45am.

All new students will receive a packet of information and coupons for free stuff (including a CSC shirt).

A typical night includes a time to socialize, sing worship songs; pray; hear announcements from our Student Leadership Team; catch an occasional video clip or testimony; and hear a Bible message from our Campus Minister, Tyler Ellis, or a guest speaker. The Bible message is followed by discussion groups designed to welcome dialogue about the Bible message and its application to our lives.
