Why Community

We’re all made for relationships.

Being a home away from home is about knowing and being known by others.

The Living Room is more than just a meeting. We’re a community. For us that means sharing life and looking out for each other as we grow spiritually.

Work and school can crowd out the things that are most important. We’ve seen the value in connecting in a church with people your age so that you’re not isolated.

How do you get connected in meaningful relationships here? Through participation in a small group, volunteering alongside others, and joining a missions team.


Small Groups

Your college years are filled with transition. Navigating school, work, and friendships can be complicated. We want to help! You don't have to do it alone.

At the start of each semester, we create opportunities for you to join a small group. Most groups consist of one or two mentors/leaders and 8 to 15 college-age adults.


Whether it’s serving food, greeting, or leading a discussion in small group, you can help us make The Living Room feel like home!


Every year we send teams in partnership with global(x) to different parts of the world. We serve, share the gospel, and support the work of local churches.

These intense times of giving become a source of incredible growth, friendship and fresh perspective.


The Freshman Welcome Home Box

College is a time of transition. You'll experience new friends, new opportunities, new routines, and possibly even a new home. Your "home away from home" is putting down the welcome mat and wants to send you a special gift. All you have to do is sign up, and we'll take care of the rest!
