The Lee University spring U-Church season will continue with the student-led event, “Come to the Table: An Evening of Worship,” on Sunday at 7:30 p.m. in the Conn Center.  

“Come to the Table” is a unique worship event that is designed and led by students. Attendees encounter many diverse styles of student-led worship, including music by LeeU Worship and other special guests, elements of spoken word, dance, art, and Communion.  

The event will also feature a new original song written by members of the U-Church planning team and LeeU Worship. 

According to members of the creative student planning team, the focus of the evening is inspired by “the deep love our Heavenly Father has for us as expressed in Ephesians 3:16-19 (NIV), which states, “I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” 

All are welcome to join together in worship and the taking of Communion. U-Church is a free, non-ticketed event open to students, alumni, and the community. Seating is first come, first served. Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. 

Childcare is available for all who attend. Contact Jill Barnett at jillbarnett@leeuniversity.edu for more information.

Why Are Joda Thongnopnua And Phil Bredesen Downplaying Their Democratic Values?

For the past several months, the Democratic Party has reached a tipping point. “Their Resistance” is to oppose anything and everything Republicans are doing to deliver a stronger economy and better economic opportunities for all Americans.  Yet, I find it very interesting that the public outcry we are seeing from the Democrats on a national level is nowhere to be found when ...

Roy Exum: It’s ‘Tennessee Week’

For over 50 years I have heard the line, “There are two things you must never do on ‘The Third Saturday of October.’ You mustn’t ever marry and try not to die because, in either case, the preacher won’t show up.” He’ll be watching “The Game.” Ever since Oct 18, 1901, Tennessee and Alabama have been going at it and that inaugural game set the tone as well as the standard for all ...
