WHAT IS ACTS2FELLOWSHIP?
Each of us came to college with different pursuits: academics, new experiences, a fresh start. But along the way, we found unexpected company with one another, and with God- and that's made all the difference.
acts2fellowship (a2f) is a University of Washington campus fellowship that meets weekly to explore the deeper questions of life like "Does God exist?" and "What's the meaning of life?" We also hang out, eat lots of good food, study hard together, go on fun trips, and just “do life” together.
Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another: "What! You too! I thought I was the only one. -CS Lewis
That’s interesting. Any events coming up?
New Students: Allow us to welcome you to the University of Washington the only way we know how: Student Skit, College Tips, and Free Korean BBQ.
Great way to meet our group and other new students. An Official Dawg Daze Event.
Who are you guys?
I grew up going to church but didn't think much about it — it was part of my weekly routine, where I sang songs and was lectured about things that are morally good to do. But I didn't really try to connect with anyone there. Going into college, I was worried that I was going to be lonely and wouldn't be able to find any friends to hangout with, being so far away from home.
Before coming to college, I didn’t have any Christian background or knowledge about who Jesus was. I identified myself as an atheist, but I wondered about the existence of a higher being and if there is a God, what kind of implications that would have on my life.
Coming into college, I had a shallow understanding of Christianity from my past experiences with church in high school. For a while, I still had an immense feeling of apathy towards everything in life and felt like my life had no purpose. My sophomore year, I began to genuinely seek God and see how He calls me to live.
I came into college with the preconception that I would find a great church, seek out the love of my life, and discover what seemed most important at the time, my dream job. I was ecstatic to be a freshman and to plug into a church just like mine at home... but 3 fellowships later, I started to lose faith and fell further away from God.
I grew up going to church but never really understood how Christianity applied to my life. When I came to college I didn’t really see a purpose for my life besides getting a degree, and eventually finding a good job. I had many conflicts with my roommates and my best friend at the time and had a hard time relating and getting close to people.
