The Cru Club at Lansing Community College is back this spring after an eventful fall semester.

The club is aimed at building movements of people who are transformed by Jesus Christ, according to Faculty Adviser Eric Bennett.

Club members meet every Wednesday from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. and noon to 1 p.m., as well as each Thursday from noon to 1 p.m. in the TLC building, near room 1202. The club also meets with the Michigan State University Cru Club each Thursday night from 7:30 to 9 p.m.

Last semester, the Cru Club’s activities consisted of LifeGroup meetings, an outreach to recruit new students during the RSO Fair at the beginning of the semester, and a fall retreat on the first weekend of October, according to Club Secretary Jennifer Wing-Proctor.

 “The fall retreat was my favorite, because I really enjoyed the speakers,” Wing-Proctor said. “The fall retreat seemed to have more students than previous years … more students from LCC came than ever before.”

During the recent spring break, some members headed to Florida for a service trip to help with hurricane relief, Wing-Proctor said.

“We are hoping to do a movie night and a game night this semester,” Wing-Proctor said.

 “We are also planning a spring retreat in April, and LifeGroup meetings during the summer with some fun activities.”

Club member Claude Shukuru shared his favorite event with the Cru Club. 

“Life group, which is Bible discussion, has been my favorite,” Shukuru said. “The reason why is because I want to learn more physically and spiritually.

“When we gather together I like hearing where people are coming from in their life and how to support them. It has helped me grow more and encourages me that I’m not alone.”

Shukuru said the weekly meetings have helped connect his faith to other parts of his life, both as a student and at home.

Shukuru was also one of the members who participated in the hurricane relief service trip.

“I wanted to serve to help rebuild the community of Harlem Heights, Fla., after the major hurricane in the fall," Shukuru said. “I enjoyed being with our Cru community and helping others with my friends here from campus.”

Shukuru said he is hoping the club has more events that welcome new members. For more information regarding the Cru Club, contact Club Adviser Eric Bennett at bennete@lcc.edu.
