sanc·tu·ar·y/ˈsaNG(k)CHo͞oˌerē/ Noun: A place of refuge or safety.
The Campus Christian Center is a place that offers safety. We extend sanctuary to all who enter. The Center is a place to be yourself, to explore God's call in your life. It is a safe place to search in Christian community, to ask questions, and to more fully understand the "good news" of Jesus Christ. It is also a quiet place of respite to meet friends, to rendezvous with study groups, to engage in Bible studies, prayer groups, to get away from the fray and/or to take a nap.
sha·lom/SHäˈlōm/ Exclamation: Used as a salutation by Jews at meeting or parting, meaning “peace.”
With Sanctuary comes Peace. Jesus offers the peace, the peace that passes understanding. Inner peace comes from knowing who God is, and whose we as the children of God. Enjoy peace at the Campus Christian Center in worship, fellowship, Bible Study, contemplative prayer in our quiet prayer room and through missional outreach by supporting such programs as the UI Food Pantry, Relay for Life, Habitat for Humanity, and many more.
Sa·cred/ˈsākrid/Adjective: Connected with God, dedicated to a religious purpose.
We welcome persons of all faith traditions. We are Christians - make no mistake, and we recognize that God's message is meant for all persons because we believe that all are created in God's image...each one of us was born with God's character traits of love and grace. God loves us as we are - and you are welcome to come here to worship and fellowship. This house belongs to God; we are but caretakers. Questions? Spiritual concerns? This is a safe place to ask them and to seek spiritual direction.
