What comes to mind when you think about God? Is he a white-bearded old man in a robe and sandals? A muscular white dude from a Renaissance painting? A buzz killer who carves his boring rules in stone?
What if God was the all-powerful Creator of the universe? What if he also loves people and cares about the details of their lives? What if he cares about your life? What if he actually wants to connect with you? That would change everything, right?
You carry all sorts of labels. You’re a student. You’re a son or daughter, maybe a brother or sister. You’re an American, an Atlantan. You’re an employee, a boss. You’re an athlete, an artist, a dancer. But you’re more than a bunch of labels. You are unique. God has some surprising and life-changing things to tell you about who you really are.
To understand why you’re here, you have to understand who God is and why he created you. He made you with a unique combination of talents, gifts, and resources. He wants you to use them to glorify him by being the hands and feet of Jesus for other people.
That word doesn’t exactly inspire admiration, does it? But here’s the thing: Jesus created the church. And he didn’t create it to be an institution that bores people or makes them feel guilty. He started the church as a movement to challenge the status quo in order to change people’s lives. The church today can still be that movement. This will happen when the people who live the movement demonstrate a radical kind of selflessness to those around them—as they live and love like Jesus.
Did God just create the world and bail? Is he sitting out there somewhere watching everything that goes on around us with casual disinterest? What if God still thinks his creation is great? What if he’s constantly, persistently changing and saving people’s lives? What if he’s all about beauty, creativity, and love? What if God cares? And what if he wants you to be involved in what he’s doing in the world?
If you have questions about small groups, email our Groups Director, Beth Romanoski.
We all have opportunities to use the time, resources, and gifts that God gives us to serve others. It’s one of the primary ways we glorify him. The Living Room gives you a number of ways to get involved.
Volunteers make The Living Room work. Here are some ways you can be involved:
If you're interested in serving in one of these areas at The Living Room, email Beth or talk to someone at our info table.

College students do not lead college Community Groups. Qualified adults serve as leaders. College Community Group leaders play an important role in the college ministry, so we take great care when enlisting them. Leading a group requires a weekly commitment for one school year. To apply for leadership, click here . Once your application is submitted, we will be in contact with you to schedule an interview.

OUR MISSION IS TO LEAD PEOPLE INTO A GROWING RELATIONSHIP WITH JESUS CHRIST.
We believe the entire Bible is the inspired Word of God. We believe in one God who exists in three distinct persons: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. We believe every person was created in the image of God and was made to be in relationship with him. Through disobedience, that relationship was broken. Jesus offers each of us forgiveness through his death and resurrection. When we put our faith in him, he restores our relationship with God.
You can expect a free dinner! In addition, you’ll have the opportunity to hang out, worship, and have fun with other college-aged adults from all over Atlanta. And did we mention the free dinner?
At the beginning of the fall and spring semesters, we’ll give you an opportunity to join a group. We’ll announce these opportunities at The Living Room and on our website. These are the only times you will be able to join.
We provide shuttles from GSU, TECH, and KSU.
