Intentional Faith Community Houses
Seeking to be known, loved, and changed by God? Interested in knowing, loving, and serving Him in return? These houses are dedicated for individuals committed to grow in their faith and serve one's neighbor, finding fellowship with others looking to do the same.
There are five houses within the same general vicinity in Lansing, between two and three miles west of Michigan State and not far from Old Town, in Lansing. One of the houses has a 24/7 prayer room anyone in the community is welcome to frequent, and a carpool runs daily to and from MSU campus and the houses for students.
Rent ranges from $265-385/mo. depending on the size of the room, and less if you're willing to share! These rates include all utilities, laundry and wireless Internet service. We also ask for a security deposit of one month's rent and references.
At least one room is currently available in one of the guys' homes, and two rooms are currently available between the two women's homes. See more information at our website: https://docs.google.com/document/pub?id=1b9L7MZC0OADGO7xksLcCmo65ANIOUPNRz90d5bvwvjE
We are graduate students but welcome those of all ages or stages in life, and especially anyone with a heart to hear from God and honor Him.
If you're interested, please get in touch!
Community location is placed at the center of the zip/postal code, city/state, or city/country (not based on street addresses)
