Friday Night Gatherings

Roughly every other Friday during the school year, we gather as a whole GCF (always open to friends!) for dinner and some combination of prayer, worship, testimony, talks, and fellowship.  Unless otherwise noted, we start at 6:30PM and meet at the Duke Episcopal Center (505 Alexander, plenty of parking and served by the central campus bus).  Dinner will be provided (a $5 donation is suggested, with an exemption for first-time visitors).

Over the course of the semester, our Friday night gatherings will largely center around themes related to our Four Commitments as a chapter of InterVarsity’s Graduate & Faculty Ministries and the purpose statement of InterVarsity.

Our Spring 2018 Friday night gatherings will be held on the following dates:  Jan. 12 & 26, Feb. 9 & 23, Mar. 9 & 23, Apr. 6 & 20, and May 4.
