As we move forward in this new year, we wanted to reflect on some of CSA’s top memories of 2015. Click the “read more” for a timeline view of the year!
CSA members recently went on a short outing to Discovery Park in Western Seattle. Although the weather was not too great, everyone was still in high spirits. A quick hike down to the lighthouse by the beach was followed by several spontaneous activities: stone skipping, shell collecting, boat watching, and of course, picture taking. To wrap up the afternoon, hot chili and sandwiches waited for us back at the cars, which was definitely a highlight of the outing for some!
In preparation for the new school year, CSA spent the weekend on Orcas Island for the annual Freshman Retreat! During this time, the incoming freshmen had a chance to get to know the older members of CSA, be introduced to the club, and of course, enjoy the Lord with fellow members of the Body!
Here’s Abby’s story of starting out at UW:
When I first came to the University of Washington I didn’t know a single person, but it wasn’t long before a group of strangers turned into a support network of great friends and fellow believers in Christ. The Thursday Night Fellowship was my favorite weekly event, especially in terms of getting to know the other members. It follows a relaxed schedule, with people popping in and out at all times, depending on who can make it, and I think that makes for a very welcoming and easy-going environment.
July 12th marked the beginning of the 2015 College Training! Over 1,400 college students, including the members of CSA at UW traveled to the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign to attend the national college training, a weeklong fellowship and gathering for all college students in the nation who love the Lord.
