Adopt-A-Student Ministry!

Here at BBC we try to minister to the students at MTU, Finlandia and Gogebic by connecting students with families from BBC, thus creating a “home-away-from-home”.

Each fall we look for families and students who would like to participate in this ministry.  Additionally, this year we are seeking someone to help coordinate our Adopt-A-Student ministry!

Here are some things that families have done with their students:

  • Weekly meals
  • Offer to let student use their laundry facilities
  • Sunday dinner after Sunday School
  • Game nights
  • Getting projects done — some of our students are amazingly handy at house/car projects!
  • Walks with the family dog
  • Cooking together

Furthermore, families may benefit from having a college student who may be willing to help watch their children, houses or pets when the family is away.

More than all of this – we have such a neat opportunity to share love and hospitality with these kids, many of whom are VERY far away from their families.  Consider being a part of this ministry this school year!  Look for a sign-up table in the back of the sanctuary in September!

If you have questions about this ministry please contact the church office or Julie Cischke.
