Every year, nearly 800 Union College students and employees take the day off from school to serve the Lincoln community. This year Project Impact served at nearly 70 sites around Lincoln, helping out the service organizations that serve the people of Lincoln all year long.
Adventist Engaged Encounter is a weekend program structured to give engaged couples time to carefully consider their relationship and their expectations for marriage. The emphasis is on building a Christ-centered relationship and on developing communication skills. Opportunity is given to dialogue honestly and intensely together. The weekend is more than an information-exchanging process, it is one of discovery.

Though naps are important, Campus Ministries offers something else to do on your Sabbath afternoons. Every week, we have something for you to do on Sabbath. Balance is good, so some SOSs will be outreach, some will be in reach, and some will be just plain reaching (for a relaxing moment). If you have any ideas or things you would like to see done, drop us a note. If you are already doing something on Sabbath afternoon that you would like help promoting or funding, let us know! So watch for SOS signs, come spend your Sabbath afternoons with us, and do Something On Sabbath.
