College Dinners
Sponsorship Opportunity
College Dinner Funding Opportunity: Our Thursday Dinners for the college ministry are bursting at the seams, with anywhere from 70 to 100 VSU students coming each week.  Every Thursday evening they pour into Grace Café for an awesome home cooked meal, and they also hear a brief message about God's grace.  These dinners are free for the students because the gospel of God's grace is free to all of us-as expressed in the motto of Grace Café ("It's not cheap; it's free").  To help support financially the rapid growth of this ministry we are seeking sponsorship for 25 Thursday Dinners (12 remaining dinners for the spring semester and 13 for the fall semester).  Dinners are approximately $350 each.  If you would like to sponsor or help sponsor a dinner please contact Jeani Synyard ( or 229-834-6004).  Thanks so much!
