Common Ground Campus Ministry

Common Ground is a non-profit ministry that operates under the umbrella of the United Methodist Church. CG is a Registered Student Organization of Lees-McRae College.

The focus of Common Ground is to provide a welcoming community where ALL students might experience the unconditional love of Christ. 

Every week during the school year we offer a home-cooked meal for the students attending CG. Would you consider providing a meal? Follow the link below to sign-up for a meal. Meal Signup

All LMC students are invited to be a part of Common Ground regardless of religion, race, sex, gender identity or nationality.
