We had a great time participating in the University of Montevallo Information Fair and Back to School Bash! We met a lot of students and gave away a lots of goodies (customized cups, soda can toppers, and pens). We drew names and gave away 25 USB thumb drives also. I hope that we generated some interest in the church and started some relationships that we can build upon. This campus is a tremendous mission field and I pray that we can reach it for Jesus Christ. It was great to meet Bryan Fulton who is the College Minister at the Church at Shelby Crossings. He was extremely friendly and I look forward to partnering with him in the future. I have to give a shout out to Melvin with the University Program Council for allowing us to participate and for being so helpful.
We had front row seats for the dancing because the DJ set up right in front of us! Patsy had a hard time staying still 🙂 Bob did a great job as always getting everything ready to go and helping to tear it all down again. I think Lance met everyone on the Quad! He has such an outgoing personality and I enjoy watching him build relationships. April and Candyce were a great help organizing all of the contacts that we made. I think that Candyce knows EVERYONE on campus!
We invited the students to a Welcome Party at Mountain Valley on Sunday, September 9th. We’ll feed them lunch right after our morning worship service. I hope we get to meet a lot of students on Sunday.
I am so thankful that I have such wonderful people to serve with at Mountain Valley! I’ve never felt such a fire to reach people for Christ and to serve them in practical ways. I’m inspired every week by people who tirelessly serve this community with a smile. Until next time…
