Hosting Needs


College Family Lunch is an invitation for students and families to enter into each other’s lives and care for one another. Ideally, groups of 3-4 students will get paired with a host family team (2 or 3 families) that will provide a monthly Sunday lunch and fellowship away from the dorms and the busyness of college life. Our hope is that College Family Lunch provides a starting point for deeper relationships and involvement in the life of the church.

Interested in being a host family or receiving more info? Visit the website for more information and contact Elizabeth Clement if you're interested in hosting!

We need Community Group Hosts for the 2018-2019 school year! Please consider serving the church in this way by opening your home once a week to a community group of approximately 12-16 people. If you are willing or if you have questions, please contact Kristin in the church office. 

China Outreach Ministries is helping to provide temporary housing for new Chinese students beginning August 4th for a few days. If you’re interested in being a host, contact Joe
Catch-up on the Summer Sermon Series on Psalms Book 2!
