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 Fall 2017 Friday night gatherings will be held on the following dates: Sept. 1, 15 & 29, Oct. 6 & 20, Nov. 3 & 17, and Dec. 1. Our annual Christmas party date is TBD.
