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 or we mail it. 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 to them but if you want to mail the package yourself, that's just fine, too.
Why do you go through all the problems of doing that?
Did you know that we lose most of our young people in the transition from high school to college and from college to work-life?
Did you also know that two-thirds 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!
We want to send a care package to them, here's what will happen. 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 to them but if you want to mail the package yourself, that's fine, too
Here are the students we have, and we will add more to this list.
