IMG_6159We are officially back! Our first week back was a whirlwind of events that started on Sunday with the Ministry Team’s planning retreat. We planned a lot of great event for the semester so keep an eye out for those in our weekly emails!

On Wednesday we set up a table at the University’s Club Carnival. Club Carnival is an opportunity for students, particularly new students, to explore the large number of clubs on campus. We handed out our cookie cups (our signauture CCC cups, with a cookie in favor bag, a CCC pen, our Campus Minister’s business card, and a little flyer that outlined our weeklies and directions to the center) to students who came by our table to learn more, as well as Freezer Pops so students could have something cool to snack on as they walked around to all the tables set up.

On Thursday we had our first official Table Talk of the semester! After a delicious meal of Virginia BBQ, various students stood up to share more about the CCC, what we do, and the different weeklies that we have. Afterwards, we played several “get to know you” games so that the new students could get to know the returning members and vice versa. After that, the group took it’s traditional trip to Carl’s to get some delicious ice cream to wrap up the evening!

On Sunday we had our first ever Coffeehouse Worship led by our Campus Minister, Shannon Waite. She selected a couple verses from the Bible and we discussed which parts really stuck out to us and what we thought was important to take away from those verses.

During our second week back, we had our first Supper Social (formally known as Girl’s Group), the first Lunch Bunch of the semester, and for Table Talk we had a discussion about Disney and Christianity!

Everyone is happy to be back and we are thrilled to have some new members joining our group!
