Disciples on Campus, made up of Disciples and UCC students, has hosted Wednesday night worship for the campus for decades. This homecoming we invite our DOC alumni to join us in this special service led by our current students. Our preacher for the evening comes from the class of 2012, Rev. Sarah Averette-Philips. She is the pastor of the Brea Congregational United Church of Christ.
This program is a regular weekly program and we are opening it up for Homecoming just this year.
