Northstar CONNECT Ministry had a terrific week welcoming back college students returning from summer vacation to Virginia Tech, Radford University, and New River Community College. Between bubble soccer on Tuesday, a bonfire on Saturday, and the welcome reception on Sunday, Connect members and leaders were able to reach out to a wide number of freshmen and students hearing of Northstar for the first time.
BUBBLE SOCCER AT VIRGINIA TECH: On Dietrick Field at Virginia Tech, this game was a hit! Lots of people played and even more watched from the side while chatting and playing cornhole.
BONFIRE ON THE NEW CHURCH LAND: Students from various ministries and areas of involvement came out for a great time of fellowship, cornhole (again), and tasty s’mores!
WELCOME RECEPTION AFTER CHURCH: A HUGE number of students stayed after service on Sunday for a lunch of hot dogs, chips, and brownies. They were able to mix in and meet each other as well the entire Northstar staff team who introduced themselves and encouraged college students to serve!
HUGE THANKS TO ALL OF OUR CONNECT LEADERSHIP TEAM AND VOLUNTEERS!
