Welcome to Sharpen
Sharpen is a ministry for all SPU students that live off-campus or in the Campus Houses and Apartments (CHA). We want students to feel connected!
We strive to bridge those gaps by providing relational opportunities: eating together, living together, studying together, worshiping together, playing together. Here is some of what we do:
Post-Gather Lunch: Every week, all off-campus and CHA students are invited to join us for a free lunch following the weekly Gather service. Located at the Kingswood House, 303 W. Dravus St. (email Bree at email@example.com)
Potlucks: Any off-campus student is welcome to bring a dish and join in as a group of students opens up their home. There is budget available for any students who want to host a potluck (email Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Pizza and Basketball: Any off-campus/CHA students are welcome to attend a free pizza party before heading over together to home games of SPU's basketball team. (email Micah at email@example.com)
Mt. Si hikes: One Saturday each quarter, you are invited to come participate in a short but beautiful hike up Mount Si. You can meet at SPU to carpool or at Mt. Si if that is closer to you. Snacks provided. (email Tucker to get your name added to the interest list - firstname.lastname@example.org)
Taste of Seattle: Do you like trying new restaurants and experiencing other cultures? Join us as we travel around Seattle's neighborhoods to get at taste of Seattle's diversity. (email Chris at email@example.com)
Community Bible Study: Sharpen is partnering up with SPU's Center for Biblical and Theological Education to provide a unique time of biblical instruction, spiritual reflection, and multi-generational small group discussion for SPU and the surrounding community.

If there is any other event or idea you think should be offered for transfer, commuter, off-campus and CHA students, contact us and we will do our best to make it happen! To get connected or to hear more, email Sharpen coordinator John Miller, firstname.lastname@example.org
