Below, you will find a few of the typical events we offer on a weekly basis. We are always striving to make the events meaningful and as energizing as possible. If you have any questions about any of the BSU events, please do not hesitate to send an email to email@example.com
FUEL is the weekly, student-led worship service held at the BSU. We set aside
this time for students to come and engage in worship and to hang out.
Typically, the music team leads the group in worship to help further connect people with God, and a student speaker shares a topic from the Bible that is
relevant to students' lives. Come and join us for a time of praise,
learning, and fellowship. If you have any questions or would like to help in the production of FUEL, please e-mail:
Greg Xander at firstname.lastname@example.org

Missional communities are something new that we're starting this year
at the BSU. They're similar to small groups because they provide a time
for people to share life together, but they are different because
they're more outwardly focused so that we can better impact Truman's campus.
Our goals with these communities are to help students connect with
other students in an intimate, communal setting and to facilitate a
personal and unique relationship with God. We want to help students at
all stages in their walk with God grow together, so the groups will
remain open enough where all students can feel comfortable asking
questions and explore different aspects of their faith.
Common Grounds is a coffeehouse that happens (almost) every Friday from
8:00-10:00 p.m. at the One10 building. We serve anything from shakes and smoothies, to cappuccinos
and lattes, to hot chocolate and apple cider. And of course, cookies - delicious, giant cookies. But Common Grounds is much more than just drinks and
cookies, Common Grounds is a place to make connections. Our goal is to be a
place that anyone is comfortable coming to so that new friendships are formed
and old friendships are strengthened. Throughout the year, we host special
theme nights (some in the past have been 80s night, open mic night, and A
Capella night featuring Truman's own True Men) which are always really fun, but
we would also encourage you to come just for a relaxing night of coffee and
board games. So if you're looking for a place to wind down from a stressful
week, or to hang out with old friends, or to connect with new friends, come on
over and visit us at Common Grounds! For more information, join our facebook
group "Common Grounds Coffeehouse at the TSU BSU" or contact Alyssa Bollinger at firstname.lastname@example.org
Kool-aid on the Quad
Kool-aid on the Quad is a weekly ministry on the Truman State Campus. Each Wednesday, during warmer weather, we setup a table between Baldwin Hall and the Library to give out free cups of Kool-aid. During cooler weather, the Kool-aid is replaced with much needed hot chocolate. Helpers with this ministry sign up for one hour shifts to help serve the drinks. Traditionally, the first shift to work heats the water for the hot coco or mixes the Kool-aid and delivers the drinks on the waggon. If you are interested in helping, please fill out the form below.
