Being a Christian in College
Saturday-Sunday, November 9-10, 2013
United Methodist youth are invited to Albion College for an overnight retreat to experience and inspire Christian living in a college setting. The program will run from noon Saturday to noon Sunday and involve a Bible Study, opportunity to get to know our Christian Living Community students and other Christians on campus, have discussions about Christian living in a college environment, and discover how Albion College students live out their Christian faith.
Youth will stay overnight in the residence halls of some of our Christian student leaders. This is part of the experience of the program.
This program is free, including lodging and all meals and snacks. Youth are not required to bring money to participate. All we ask is that youth/youth groups have their own transportation to/from Albion College.
Registration is on a first-come, first-registered basis, with limited spaces available. Youth must return a completed registration form, signed by her/him as well as a parent/guardian. We encourage early registration, and our final deadline is November 4, 2013.
For more information on the retreat or registration, you may contact us in one of three ways:
- Call the Office of the Chaplain, Albion College (517-629-0492).
Youth groups are welcome, but we need at least an estimate of numbers.

Albion College Chapel
Student-led Christian worship at Albion College Chapel takes place every Wednesday night of the academic year at 9:00 p.m. in the Kellogg Center "Stack" (second floor). Each week, the Christian body on campus gathers in unity. While the music is primarily contemporary Christian, students keep many traditional aspects (e.g., Benediction, hymns, prayers) and weave together different musical genres (e.g., Gospel, praise songs from different countries). This is a uniquely Albion College phenomenon. It is a tremendous expression of Christian unity on campus and in the world. Leadership for Chapel is drawn from all Christian groups and Christian traditions. For students on the leadership team, Chapel is a great opportunity to develop ministry skills and discern calling. Albion College Chapel is a student-led program, sponsored by the Office of the Chaplain. All members of the Albion College community are welcome to attend and participate.
Each year for the past twelve years, Asian Awareness Group (AAG) hosts a campus celebration of Diwali, supported by the Office of the Chaplain and the Office of Intercultural Affairs. This is normally held in November.
Lessons and Carols
One of Albion College's most beloved traditions, the Music Department sponsors "A Service of Lessons and Carols" once per year during Advent. This is a wonderful celebration of sacred vocal music, and for many, a deeply meaningful Christian worship experience. The public and all members of the Albion College community are welcome. Free.
Catholic Mass takes place on campus once per month. The Office of the Chaplain advertises this monthly. Father Joseph Gray of St. John Catholic Church (Albion) officiates. Open to the entire campus community.
On Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m., the Catholic Connections student organization provides a ride service to/from the 10:30 a.m. Mass at St. John Catholic Church (1020 Irwin Ave., Albion). All students are welcome.
Albion College Hillel organizes programs throughout the academic year for campus to observe Jewish holidays and raise awareness of Jewish tradition. The Office of the Chaplain and Office of Intercultural Affairs provides support.
