Adopt a college student, February Edition

IF YOU ARE HERE FOR THE LIST OR WISH LIST, SCROLL DOWN PAST QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS. SCROLL DOWN TO THE PICTURE!


What is Adopt a college student?

IT's where we as a church have decided to intentionally let our young adults know that they are loved by their home church, by creating a care package.

Every month, we want to send a care package, whether you send it out or we mail it out. We will have packages so you can bring notes of encouragement, gift cards and anything you'd think will let them know that they are loved. We will mail the packages out to them but if you want to mail the package out yourself, we will not oppose it.


Why do you guys go through all the problems of doing that?

Did you know that we loose most of our young people in the transition from high school to college and from college to work-life?


Did you also know that we 2/3 of young people are leaving the church?


Did you also know that you can help us make a dent in this number! Just by letting them know how much you care!


Every month, we want to send a care package, whether you send it out or we mail it out. We will have packages so you can bring notes of encouragement, gift cards and anything you'd think will let them know that they are loved. We will mail the packages out to them but if you want to mail the package out yourself, we will not oppose it.


Here are the students we have, and we will add more to this list.
