WHO WE ARE
Engage, Community, Relationships
We believe that simple and small acts can make sure a big impact on the lives of students. Every month or two we look to mail cards of encouragement. These cards are meant to be unexpected notes that are simple reminders to students that we continue to remember them. Everyone wants to be known and remembered, especially with a note in the mail. Caring with Cards is a way to connect with students wherever they might be. We are always looking for more adults to write a card to students every month.
We understand that going to college can be a hard transition for freshmen students. Each year, after a month of school we look to send freshmen students a giftcard and card which shares they continue to be thought about and prayed for. We also know that all college students enjoy receiving things from home, no matter how close or far away they are. We look at care packages as a way to share with students that they have not been forgotten, but continue to be loved, supported, and prayed for. We need adults to bake, pack the boxes, and send the packages each year.
TRIPS & ACTIVITIES
BIBLE STUDY: IN PERSON AND VIRTUAL
We as a college ministry are currently thinking through what it looks like to connect with, minister to, and provide community for college aged students. We are sharing a short survey to all college aged students to share their feedback about what they need. We see the need for in person gathering space but at the same time we want to invite students who want to connect but cannot be physically present to have a virtual space.
- +UNC School of the Arts
- We support UNCSA through connecting with them via the Listening Post. The Listening Post is a ministry under Cooperative Campus Ministry that weekly checks in with students, asks how things are going and how a student is doing, and provides a calming and non-anxious presence for students.
- +Wake Forest University
- We connect with Wake Forest University through the Baptist Student Union. In supporting the BSU we seek to support the entire campus. Support for students varies from an ice cream social, to providing food once a month for their weekly bible studies, and being open to opportunities of service together in our city.
