College Caffeine and Caring
by Steve Case

Ask a group of adults in your church to remember what it was like when they were in college, to be away from home, to have little or no money, to pull all-nighters, and how mail (any mail) was like gold. Ask them to pick up a gift card from Starbucks, Caribou coffee, or a favorite local shop. Drop these in the mail to a college student with a simple note such as: “We’re proud of you” or “We’re praying for you.” It’s a great way to keep your young people connected to their home church as well as a great outreach for the adults.
