Title

College Changes

Narrative or description

I grew up in a very small and very religion based town, so when I came to college, it was kind of like a culture shock. People were not as focused on religion, or at least it didn't appear to be that way; you had to look closer and deeper in order to find people who were just as focused on religion as you were. But when I found out that there was a non-denominational Christian group that continued to worship even amidst COVID, I really wanted to go and see what is was all about. I am happy that I went because now I have met so many new people in my community that share the same beliefs as I do, and we have really connected and became close friends. Being a member of this group almost gives me a sense of being grounded and being at peace. These days are very stressful for everyone especially with the pandemic going on, so if you can find a group near you that still worships during these times, I highly recommend going and seeing what it is all about. You never know if you will like it unless you try.
