Welcome Back!


For those of you new to Cru, and to all of you returners welcome back! I hope the first week went well and you're excited to be back at school! It's hard to believe that it's only been a week, as so much has been happening already, but I am excited to spend time with all of you this semester. For those of you who haven't received this email before, this is what we call the Cru's Letter. It is our weekly email where you can find updates and information on upcoming events, information and times for our weekly happenings, and usually a quick devotional. We hope that this will serve as a resource and encouragement to you as you start your week. Stay tuned in the weeks to come!

Colossians 3:17
And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

In Christ,
