What does Sabbath mean? How can we practice Sabbath well? How can we practice Sabbath together?
This Spring we’ll spend six weeks together studying the topic of Sabbath. All of the study guides will be posted here when they are ready. Consider studying this with your dorm floor, or apartments. Adopt some Sabbath practices together with your houses, departments, and majors.
Sabbath is more than just stopping—it also involves emotional rest, embracing God’s calling, and feasting with good food. We invite you to join us as we consider and practice Sabbath.

It's bigger than Calvin
This study reaches beyond our campus. Through our partnership with the off-campus programs, the Sabbath study will extend around the world, including Britain, Honduras and Spain. In addition, many churches in West Michigan and others across North America will also have an opportunity to study Sabbath this Spring.
Available study materials
Study materials will be available for all participants at a discounted rate. Materials can be purchased at the Campus Store starting in January.
