Introducing a new program called C4 (Creating College Community through Christ), students will connect with each other through worship, conversation, and dinning! The idea is to create a welcoming atmosphere for all students. The program would consist of walking to worship together, having brunch after Sunday service, and more! Interested in being a part of C 4 for next year? Email firstname.lastname@example.org or Kelli Gapinski.
