Brigitte Condoret, a junior music

the Christian Science College Organ
ization, the student group at UNC-'
Chapel Hill, this summer, although
she will be studying at Duke Uni
versity in the fall.
Brigitte. who has spent two years
in Holland playing baroque violin,
says she has profited greatly from her
affiliation with Christian Science and
the College Organization.
"It has trained me to look within,"
she says. "It helps you to focus on
the better side of your human
r Brigitte says she comes from a very
musical background where academ
ics were somewhat lacking. Through
Christian Science, however, she says
she saw that there are no barriers to
understanding. "The study of God is
by far the highest study and governs
everything else." At college, Brigitte
has maintained an A average.
"Christian Science is somewhat
against the grain." she says, adding
that it is for people who are open
minded and curious about different
. Maranatha Ministries
In Aramaic, "Maranatha" means
"come Lord Jesus." but on about 50
campuses nationwide and 20 more
abroad, it also stands for a group
of devout Christian students who
believe in salvation and the absolute
authority of the Bible.
"Christianity is not just for Sun
day," says Ronnie Lewis, who is
pastor of Maranatha churches reach
ing colleges and universities in
Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill.
Lewis, who has been a pastor with
Maranatha since he graduated from
UNC-Chapel Hill two years ago, says
Maranatha "taught me how to live
a disciplined and uncompromising
life. It taught me how to be bold for
Concerning his ministry to Univer
sity . students, Lewis says they are
"making decisions and forming
habits that will be with them the rest
of their lives," and he hopes they
won't let "the hedonistic trap of the
University take hold of them."
Among Maranatha's programs at
UNC-Chapel Hill are Wednesday
night gatherings with music, discus
sions and inspirational talks.
Independent Bible studies are con
ducted in various places on campus
as well, - . . . "'
On many afternoons, the members"
of Maranatha practice one of their
most visible activities, open air
preaching. They stand on Franklin
Street or in the "pit" in front ofjhe
Student Stores and preach to the
people there. r .'.
"Jesus is such that we can just take.
Him out to those public places,"
explains Lewis. "We've seen students :.
get born again right out there in the ,
He says the open air preaching is
also a good place to deal with
questions not addressed in class, such
as abortion and evolution.
One of the major events this fall
for Maranatha Ministries at UNC
Chapel Hill will be the arrival of Rice
Broocks, who has founded a number
of Maranatha churches at schools
across the nation.
Last summer, Broocks, who will
be in Chapel Hill from August 24
to late September, preached to a
million people in Korea to help
celebrate 100 years of Christianity in

B'nai Brith Hillel Foundation
. Jewish student activity at UNC
Chapel Hill is focused at the B'nai
Brith Hillel Foundation, a short
distance from the campus at 210 W.
Fritz Cronheim, a graduate stu
dent studying music, has been spend-
' ing time at the foundation for four
years. Of the time while he was
growing up in Columbus, Ohio,-he
says, "I had a Jewish consciousness,
but there was very little Jewish
observance in my home."
When Fritz arrived in Chapel Hill,
he realized that he was suddenly part
of a minority. "Many people in North

Carolina have never even seen a
Jew," he notes.
Although he was not particularly
interested at first, he began to attend
services at the foundation. "I was able
to follow what was going on," he
says, but "the real draw of the place
was that the people are such a nice
group." -. .' , .
Conservative and the bit more
modern reformed prayer books are
available at the foundation. "There's
not a great deal of pressure to
conform," Fritz says. "You can come
when you want."
"Even if you don't agree 100
percent," with other members of the
foundation, he says, "you know
where they're coming from. New
faces, new ideas are what keep this
this place alive."
At Hillel House, Fritz says, there
is a great deal of emphasis on student
service., For example, students often
lead the Friday evening Shabbat
services. Fritz has previously acted
as kitchen coordinator for the dinner
that occasionally follows the service.
"It's given me - something that's .
outside of the normal student realm,"
he says, adding that "there's a more
relaxed atmosphere; a real sense of
The foundation has also helped
Fritz to adjust to life in the South,
where traditional Christian religions
are taken very seriously. "By belong
ing to Hillel, I feel more comfortable
in a society which places such great
emphasis on religious observations."
Foundation activities planned for
the week that students arrive at
school include a First Shabbat
Service and Dinner at 6:30 p.m. on
Friday, August 23. The cost will be
$2.00 for members and $3.00 for non
members. An open house is planned for
Monday and Tuesday, August 19
and 20, from 9 until 4. .

University Baptist Church and
Baptist Campus Ministry
Until 1850, students at UNC
Chapel Hill had to attend University
services on Sunday, regardless of
their denomination. But the protests
of a number of churches in Chapel
Hill, some of which had built chapels
near the school, won out.
Baptist students, however, for lack
of a church in Chapel Hill, had to
walk a few miles south to Mount
Carmel, a town of about 300, and
the nearest Baptist church.
But in 1854, Chapel Hill Baptist
Church, later University Baptist
Church, became the first Baptist
church in town. The present building,
completed in 1923, stands across
Columbia Street from the campus.
This August, programs for stu
dents at University Baptist will begin
with a student lunch Sunday, August
25, after the 1 1 a.m. worship service.
A college Sunday school class at 10
and Wednesday night supper at 6:15
are planned for the semester.
Denise Honeycutt, a summer
intern minister, considers students an
important part of University Baptist.
