Local Churches

Cru is a great place for you to walk with God and do ministry during your years as a college student in the unique environment on campus, but we don’t take the place of a local church. We encourage everyone to worship and be under the leadership of a local body. Athens has many great churches that welcome students each Sunday. We have listed a few below, in alphabetical order, which are close to campus or popular with Cru students, but this list is certainly not exhaustive. It’s just offered as a help to get you started.
