Weekly Events

  • Chi Alpha Night is our weekly gathering on campus. We get together at 7:30 p.m. every Tuesday in the University Center, most often in Pioneer A. Chi Alpha Night features music, teaching, prayer, and a healthy dose of laughter. In the winter 2017 semester, we are studying the life and teachings of Jesus and applying these truths to our everyday lives.
  • Core groups also meet every week at various times. We use the term “core groups” because they are central to who we are as a community and as individuals. This is where deep friendships are built and where people interested in Jesus become His disciples.

  • Life in NMU Chi Alpha features both scheduled and spontaneous activities. Think hikes up Sugarloaf and Hogback, diving into Lake Superior at Blackrocks, cheering on the Wildcat football team together, sampling Marquette’s best budget-friendly restaurants, camping in the Porcupine Mountains, and anything else you’re up for.
