As an ecumenical ministry, the Campus Christian Community (CCC) receives the bulk of its funding from The VA Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, the Westminster Foundation (affiliated with the Presbytery of the James, Presbyterian Church USA), and the Lutheran Synod. This funding provides for staff salaries and benefits, building maintenance, utilities, and the various administrative expenses associated with the CCC’s day-to-day operations.
There are many ways that you can help support the CCC.
Table Talk Dinners
Dinner at our Table Talk programs has become an important time of fellowship and ministry for the CCC. Each week we gather at table before a time of sharing joys and concerns and our program. The churches who provide their support through meals are a wonderful blessing to our ministry.
We are always looking for more help with this part of our ministry! We love when churches can provide a home cooked meal for us, but we also know this isn’t a reality for every church to have the people to cook for a large group. Our students also enjoy preparing the meals together, so if providing a financial donation to cover the cost of the food is something that you could do, we would appreciate that as well! We estimate that it costs about $200 to cover the cost of the food for our group.
Food for meals should be dropped off by 4pm on your day so that we can set up and be ready to eat by 5pm. We a kitchen available for prepping food. We also would love to have you stay and join us for dinner and fellowship!
If you would like to volunteer to bring food please contact Marlene at Marlene@campuschristiancommunity.com
One of the things that students love to receive is care packages, especially during stressful time. If you or your church is interested in putting something like this together let us know! You could contact us about sending them to specific students or send one to the CCC in general.
Some suggested items for the packages include:
- Coloring Books
- Crossword Puzzle Books
- Gift Cards for Food/Coffee
- Cards with encouraging notes (ex. “you’ve got this”)
- Stress Relievers (stress balls, slinkies, etc)
- Any other fun things you can think of!
Make a Monetary Donation
The CCC is also supported by generous donations from local churches in the Fredericksburg area, and by contributions from individual donors. Much of that funding is used to support student fellowship activities, service projects and mission trips. Without it, CCC students wouldn’t have nearly as many opportunities to learn and grow spiritually and to make a difference in the lives of others, both in our community and in other countries.
