COLLEGE MINISTRY CORNER
MISSION Greenville, SC 2017
February 24 - 28
Hey church family…..one of the cool “traditions” in college ministry is to take a “Spring Break” mission trip. Two years ago our college ministry went to New Orleans to serve in the big city and find out what “Urban Missions” is all about. We helped with a church plant in Marrero, LA, named Westbank Baptist Church. You can find out more about that church at www.wearewestbank.com
Last year, we did MISSION RUSTON….partnering with local ministries (Rolling Hills, Life Choices, etc….) as well as serving in places such as elementary schools and the Detention Center. We prayer-walked in neighborhoods and shared the Gospel with those we came in contact with. We also visited nursing homes, the home-bound, and completed little clean-up projects around the church and some senior adult homes.
This year, 2017, our “spring break” mission trip will be focused on helping Aubrey & Mollie Hogan plant a church in Greenville, South Carolina! You can find out more at www.tablecommunitychurch.com. Our students will get “hands-on” training in church planting, as well as discover and serve a city, which is known as one of the fastest growing cities in the US.
Will you pray about partnering with us? We’d love to have you come along side our college students and participate in this mission trip. Please let us know….
As always, thanks to all the Connect Group classes who have prepared and hosted our “Big Free Lunches” throughout the year. These delicious meals are by far our most well-attended events. Our college students love getting to know you better and
absolutely enjoy feasting on the food you so lovingly
provide. Thanks for loving on them!
Here are a few upcoming events you could help with:
Feb. 7, Tuesday – we need 10 pans of chicken spaghetti to serve at the LA Tech BCM.
Feb. 19, Sunday – college graduate recognition during the morning worship service.
Feb. 24 - 28 - MISSION GREENVILLE
Also, we’re in need of a few people who would be willing to help meet & greet and hangout with college students on Wednesday nights from 6pm – 7pm. You would be mainly focusing on developing relationships with our college students and getting to know them better so you will know how to better pray for them and encourage them in their walk.
Our college department in also in need of 1 more Connect Group teacher. If you are interested, please let us know.
Love y’all…..and we’re so thankful to have a church family who loves college students! “May the Lord bless you and keep you….” - Numbers 6:24-26
