Food for the Soul
Local church congregations and other organizations bring a home-cooked meal to students each week at Food for the Soul. Time together generally opens with prayer and ends with discussion and fellowship.
Tuesdays, 5:30 PM, Dirlam Lounge
Fall and Spring Retreats
Every fall and spring semester, RLC plans a weekend retreat for students. These retreats are designed to provide relaxation and spiritual restoration. Retreats are a great balance of fellowship and devotional activities aimed at helping students take a deep breath and get away from the ‘hustle & bustle’ of school. Wesley Woods Camp and Wild Wood Hills Ranch are two examples of places the retreats have visited.
Fall Retreat: August 31-September 2, Wesley Woods
Alternative Saturday Nights
Go swing dancing, watch a movie, or join in a game of sardines. The first and third Saturdays of every month RLC hosts an alternative Saturday night activity. Check Localist for specifics!
The cornerstone program serves first-year students by providing fellowship as well as a space to discuss the transition to college and spiritual life. Group leaders can also help first years get involved in RLC and campus activities. All first-year students are welcome to join at any time.
Tuesdays, 9:00 PM, Dirlam Lounge
Spend some time together in fellowship. After hours is a time for fellowship after Campus Worship on Wednesday nights in Dirlam Lounge. Activities and food are provided by organizations from around campus for a relaxing and fun evening.
Ryan Rohlf: Chapel Intern of Welcome and Celebration
My name is Ryan Rohlf, and I’m the Chapel Intern for Welcome and Celebration. It’s my job to make sure that every student, faculty member and staff personnel feels welcome in the chapel and at chapel-sponsored events. You should definitely come check out our awesome facilities! Oh and I’m in charge of this fun thing called Alternative Saturday Nights, so if you have any ideas for some awesome events, shoot ‘em my way. I’m currently a junior at Simpson College, and I’m double majoring in marketing and integrated marketing communications creative concentration. I’m also minoring in English. Oh… and I’m involved with The Simpsonian, Opera at Simpson, the Public Relations Student Society of America and the Student Alumni Association. I’m also taking graphic design and web design classes. Needless to say, you’ll probably see me running around campus with my coffee cup and my computer on most days. I live a crazy life, but I love it! My advice to you: try everything! You only live once! Oh, and if you ever have a question, I can be found pretty regularly in Holy Grounds. My question to you: Are you ready for another amazing year!?
