Despite college pressures and a lack of familiar churches in the area, many black students continue to foster their church culture
When you walk into the Epicenter of Worship in Lansing’s Old Town , you’re immediately bombarded with enthusiastic greetings.
Every Sunday, the Epicenter of Worship is filled with students and Lansing residents. While the church is not packed to the brim, there is no shortage of people looking to fulfill their spiritual needs.
The difference between this church and one students might have easier access to is the “praise team” — a group equipped with an assortment of instruments ranging from electric guitars to drums to their own voices.
For English junior Leon Adams , finding a church that fit his spiritual needs on campus wasn’t difficult. A few weeks after joining the MSU Gospel Choir, Adams received fliers for multiple churches that were available to him in Lansing.
“I grew up in Detroit, and when I went to Epicenter for the first time, I noticed they had similar belief systems as the churches I usually went to,” Adams said. “So that’s what gravitated me toward that church.”
