What We Do

2.42 Church is a nondenominational Christian church focused on reaching college students at Texas State University and our neighbors in San Marcos with the gospel of Jesus Christ. Through Jesus, we are a dynamic community of faith that is boldly compassionate, celebrating life's adventure, being made new, and complete together.

For most students, college is an exciting time of learning and personal growth. But there’s a problem…

  • The pressures of being in college without an emotional and spiritual support system can lead to burnout, feelings of isolation, and negative effects on mental health.
  • 63% of college students experience feeling “very lonely” (National College Health Assessment).
  • It can be difficult to find a place to ask hard and honest questions about college, God, and life.

We want to help connect you with other people who also want genuine friendships and real talk, not just surface level conversations. We want to know what the Bible really says about the confusing parts of life, especially as it applies to college students. And we love meeting new people — in fact, much of what we do is specifically designed around it!

Weekly Homegroups

Homegroups are what we call our weekly small group meetings. Over the years, students have said that homegroup meetings are the highlight of their week and that the people in their homegroup have become like a second family to them — a home away from home. Homegroups are made up of 10 - 20 students who meet up on a weekly basis to look at scripture, talk about how life is going, and hang out together. Want to get connected with a homegroup?

Sunday Worship Services

Our Sunday services are a time for members from all the different homegroups to come together to worship and learn more about God as a larger body. Jesus' church is bigger than each of us and bigger even then 2.42 church, and Sunday services are a little glimpse of that beautiful vision of unity!

Our services typically consist of a time of worship — either through music, prayer, or some kind of alternative worship — and a teaching or panel discussion on a topic of Christian faith and what it means for our lives here on earth. We also typically like to hang out afterwards and eat dinner around town as smaller groups!
