RealLife at the Newport
RealLife at the Newport is a place where students bring students to grow in our understanding of who God is, who he says we are, and how that impacts our lives.
Our weekly meeting can have anywhere from 300-500 people in attendance. We have hosts who guide the meeting, students who share real and honest stories about their lives, live music by our RealLife band, special guest artists, and a practical teaching from one of our Cru staff members. We have a good time, laugh a lot, and think deeply about God, our lives, and the world around us. We love seeing new faces, so the door is always open and you're invited!
Our small groups are intended to be a place to experience Christ-centered relationships and learn about God together. If our weekly meeting is the bread of Cru's presence on campus, then Small Groups are the butter. They are a community within a community, often taking place in your Residence Hall, your area of study, or down the street from your off-campus house.
Our relationship with God is not meant to be lived out in solitude, and even our questions about Him are not answered best on our own. Our small groups exist to forge friendships that challenge our perceptions of life, point us toward God, and respond with grace when we find ourselves falling short of His glory. Cru's small groups pull back the curtain of our movement and reveal, not perfection, but genuine pursuit of God and His Kingdom.
At FLT, we hangout, have a ton of fun, play games, live life together, learn what it means to be a leader in Cru, but most importantly, we get to know Jesus as we plunge into the Gospel together. If you are a freshmen, we hope to see you there.
"FLT exists to give freshmen the opportunity to meet other freshmen involved with Cru, to have fun and grow in their faith together, and to take more ownership of the movement of Cru at OSU."
