College Ministry Update
College Ministry Update: Last year we had Thursday Night Dinners at the rectory first semester and then at Grace Café (lower level of Louttit Hall) second semester.  By the end of the school year there were anywhere from 60 to 80 VSU students attending these dinners.  In addition there were many VSU students frequenting Grace Café throughout the week.  There are two new initiatives in the college ministry this year.  First, we will have nine Interns, all VSU students, who will be living on the church property-four female students in the Tomberlin House (Erin Cole, Shelby Coulter, Emily Johnson, and Kathya Melgar) and five male students in Louttit Hall (Antonio Scantlebury, Alex Jones, Wil Brown, Will Sandridge, and Carter Brogdon).  In exchange for housing these interns will be working about 20 hours a week running Grace Café, helping with the Thursday Dinners, and serving in other areas of ministry at Christ Church.  We will introduce these interns at the August 19 10:00 service.  Second, we will have a Noon Sunday Service geared toward VSU students that the interns will help lead.  These services will be an informal Rite II Eucharist with the same sermon as the 8:00 and 10:00 services and will run on the weekends when VSU is in session, the following Sundays this fall: September 9, 16, 23 and 30; October 14, 21 and 28; November 4, 11, and 18; and December 2.  Even if you are not a VSU student, you are more than welcome to join us.  Please keep this ministry in your prayers as we seek to receive the grace of God in Jesus Christ and share that grace with VSU students.
