We are the University Ministry of Bacon Heights.  We may not be the largest or flashiest university ministry in town, but we are real folks trying hard to live an authentic Christian life in a world that often rewards and values other things.  

We truly believe our motto of "First Things First."  Being a mathetes, a disciplined follower of Jesus, isn't about being perfect, and it certainly isn't about pretending life isn't difficult.  We all come to Jesus as we are. We realize, sometimes, some real life immediate needs must be met before we can even get still enough to see Jesus.  That's what we mean by 'first things first.'  We want to be there with each other, and you, in a real way, to confront the life issues that keep us up at night and pop into our heads every time we try to get quiet.  

We could tell you the truth and say "trust Jesus" or "spend some time in prayer," but what if you don't know, or trust, Jesus yet?  What if you don't know how to pray?  First things first.  Let's spend some time talking through that right-now problem and then get to how to pray and learning who Jesus is.  Trusting Him is still the answer and still the truth, but you have to know Him first.  First things first.



We attend the Traditional Service at 9:15 every Sunday and then meet for  Sunday School in Room 218 at 10:45.  One of the friendly Greeters will help point you in the right direction.    

On Sunday mornings, for the Spring 2021 Semester, we will be working through a series called "Stories We Have Heard."  This is studying the Bible stories we may have heard in our youth, and revisiting them with adult eyes and a more advanced theology.  Remember the story of Jonah and the giant fish?  There is so much more to that story than the fish!

Also for the Spring 2021 Semester we will meet at 7pm every Wednesday in the University room at church.  This is a much more informal atmosphere.  We will be studying the assurance of salvation (how to know you are saved) as well as how to be alone without being lonely.

On our calendar for the Spring semester we have Secret Church, a weekend retreat to Palo Duro Canyon State Park, a day trip Caprock Canyons State Park,  local hangouts and game nights.

If you are looking for the personal attention so often lacking from larger ministries, give us a shot!
