Societies

At Maranatha, all students join a society. Society chapels take place on a regular basis and provide a great opportunity for students to encourage each other. Students have many chances to be involved in societies. One way to get involved is through intramural sports such as soccer, dodgeball, volleyball, basketball, and powderpuff football! The society cabinets also plan outings and activities such as bonfires, ice skating, photo scavenger hunts, corn mazes, and movie nights. Within their societies, students can also be involved in ministry activities that provide a vehicle for community service, outreach, and volunteer work. Societies provide great opportunities for competition, fun, fellowship, and ministry!

One traditional aspect of societies is intramural sports. The five men’s and five women’s societies divide into teams for competition in men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s dodgeball, men’s and women’s volleyball, men’s and women’s basketball, and women’s flag football. The women’s Powderpuff Football Tournament is a spring campus tradition. Teams battle for gridiron supremacy on the “quad” area between Old Main and the men’s residence halls as large crowds watch. The intramural program changes a bit each year. Sports tournament proposals can be submitted to the Office of Student Activities for consideration.

Intramural Sports

Intramural competitions help inject enthusiasm into student life. Many student-led initiatives during the school year become competitions among societies.
