College Dinners
College Spagetti Dinner

The most recent spagetti dinner was held Thursday, Dec 3rd.  Thank you to all who helped make this fall the most successful outreach to college students ever, with over 150 students visiting in December, a record high 169 students in October, and over 140 students in September.  We pray that as we share a meal with our neighbors that they will come closer to the Holy Spirit.
