Greetings! My name is Jesse Larson and I am the campus minister here at Collegiate Presbyterian Church (CPC) located in Ames, IA. Part of our church’s mission is to provide a Presbyterian presence on the Iowa State University campus. Our church has a long history of creating relationships with Iowa State University students and helping to provide them with meaningful worship, fellowship opportunities, mission experiences, and spiritual growth. For more info, check out our website at www.cpcames.org/.
I am writing to ask for the names and contact information of any young adults from your congregation/Presbytery who will be attending Iowa State University this coming school year. I hope that through a phone call, email or letter, it might make it easier for new students to feel comfortable in becoming involved in CPC as their church home while they are away from home.
At Collegiate, we offer many opportunities for students to continue their faith journey and become an integral part of a loving Christian community:
- Contemporary worship and traditional worship on Sunday mornings
- Free Sunday lunch & dinner followed by a fun evening program
- Monday Bible study/faith conversations
- Overnight retreats each semester
- Meals and holiday events with international students
- An annual spring break mission trip
- Music participation – praise band, vocal and hand bell choirs
- Teaching in our church school and after school programs with younger children
- Adoptive families
- Service projects
Whatever you can tell us about each of your young adults in the way of talents, hobbies, previous service to the church, etc. would make our connection that much better. You can email (email@example.com), call (515-203-1994) or mail your information to me, and please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. Many thanks for your time and your assistance!
