College students have always been a vital and treasured part of our church community. We have a good number of students who call Grace Covenant their church home away from home and who participate in many of our regular activities and events. Listed here are a few of the ways that Grace Covenant ministers specifically to our college community. If you have any questions, or if we can serve you in any way, please get in touch with us - we'd love to help!
William and Mary students at Grace Covenant are involved in many different Christian organizations on campus: RUF, InterVarsity, Agape Christian Fellowship, etc. Grace Covenant supports and partners with each of these ministires in a variety of ways. Reformed University Fellowship (RUF) is the campus ministry of our denomination, the Presbyterian Church in America (PCA). To find out more about RUF, contact the campus minister, Ben Robertson.
At the beginning of each school year, college students are invited to participate in our Adopt-A-Student program. The program pairs students with families from within Grace who open up their homes (including their refrigerators and washing machines!) to students. Many of our students find that this is a great way to escape campus life every once in awhile and enjoy a home-cooked meal with people who aren't studying for anything! If you'd like to be connected with a family, please contact us or make a note on our yellow "In Touch With Grace" form when you visit on Sunday.
CollegeCARE is designed to encourage and connect with the college-aged students from Grace Covenant who are in school away from Williamsburg. A network of parents and friends keep our students connected through notes, care packages, etc. with the goal to help them continue to grow their relationships with God and each other. For more information about how to help, contact Jeri Field.
For William and Mary students, Grace Covenant offers a shuttle service from campus to the 11:00 worship service each Sunday morning (beginning August 26). Our van (with Grace Covenant logo on the side!) will meet you at the following times and places:
We currently do not provide a shuttle service for the 8:30 am worship service. If you're interested in attending that service and don't have a way to get here, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know, and we'll try to set you up with a ride.
