Communitas

Celebration of the connecting of faith and scholarship.

Communitas is the day we celebrate the thing we try to do every day at Grace College, which is to connect faith and scholarship. We believe that true worship engages minds as well as hearts. To this end, Communitas showcases the most exceptional student scholarly achievements from all areas of Grace College. Held annually in conjunction with Grace’s Spring Day of Worship, Communitas is open to the community. Communitas is sponsored by the Office of Faith, Learning & Scholarship.

All sessions will meet in the Dr. Dane A. Miller Science Complex. Stay tuned for further updates.
