College Prayer Partners
Help us keep our young adults connected to church!
     We are looking for volunteers to commit to an ongoing partnership with one college student for the remainder of the school year (or beyond!) that would involve writing a simple letter or note of prayer and encouragement once a month or so. The church will keep the responsibility of mailing out care packages, but as you develop a relationship with your assigned college student you are welcome to include gifts as well (gift cards, etc.) or contribute special/personalized treats to the quarterly care packages. Click here if you would be interested in joining the program as a prayer partner for a college student.
     Know a college kid who could use some encouragement? Make sure we have their address/contact information so they can receive care packages and get connected to a prayer partner!
