St. Paul's Lutheran Church

College Connect

Parents of college students! You are encouraged to register your son or daughter for College Connect! College Connect is a ministry of St. Paul's Lutheran Church for student members who are going away to college this year. Each semester, they will receive a care package of goodies donated and put together by members of St. Paul's Lutheran Church. Help us keep connected to our college students in this special way! We ask students (or their parents) to complete this form EACH YEAR as college addresses may change from year to year. If you registered last year, you must complete the online form again this year.
 
 
There are three other ways you can support our college students while they are away at school!
1) Donate snacks! Use the list below to donate items for the care package. Bring your donations to the donation bin in the church gym lobby or the church office by the due date. 
2) Help pack the College Connect Care Packages. Contact DCE Tim Kaufmann for the time and details. One hour of your time will be needed.
3) On a College Connect weekend, pick up a care package box after the worship services and take it that week to the U.S. Post Office and mail it!
