Worship

The spiritual and community life office encourages students to seek out local faith communities for their own spiritual practices. In many cases, local churches or assemblies are more than happy to pick up students on campus and provide rides to and from worship.

Below is a list of some of the churches in and around Amherst, and there are many more churches in Lynchburg.
