Hello to all members, returning and new, and welcome to InterVarsity Christian Fellowship! I hope you’ve all had a good start to the school year and I look forward to meeting everyone and learning about each of you.
For those that are new, my name is Kelsey Hopland and I am the secretary of InterVarsity Christian Fellowship. I do lots of different things for our group, but one of my main duties is to keep you all informed with what is going on, thus, this newsletter! I will be sending out emails weekly or bi-weekly with all the different events we have going on, this includes but is not limited to: weekly small group meetings, Saturday brunches, Sunday church visits, worship nights and community service events. In addition to the newsletters, we keep an up-to-date website with the master calendar of events and an archive of previous newsletters (visit it at: wagnerchristianfellowship.webs.com). We are also working on a Facebook page!
Now, today is our first event! Meet me and Leah (the club president) down in the main dining hall at 11AM for our first Saturday brunch. These brunches are just a way for all of us to hang out together, get to know each other and talk about our weeks in a super chill setting.
But if today is a little too short notice, join us tomorrow for a church service at Salem Church. Salem is a lovely church just 2 miles down the road and does a lot to help support us here at Wagner. Some of its congregation are actually Wagner alumni that began attending the church during their college years and have never left! We meet in the Hawks Nest at 9:30 for coffee, bagels, and fellowship before we head off together for the 10:15 service. Please shoot me an email if you are interested because I need to figure out carpooling! If you would like to know more about Salem Church, their mission and their purpose, visit www.salemchurchnyc.org.
For the next couple weeks, we will be having only our Saturday brunches and Sunday church visits. Our official kick-off will be a worship night during the week of September 16-20, and small groups will start the week after. But, of course, we will keep you posted on all of those things!
We have so many things planned for this year and there is so much potential for life-changing transformation. We cannot wait to see what God does on campus this year! If you have any questions about our mission, InterVarsity, Salem church, other campus ministry, etc, please do not hesitate to ask! I can be contacted through email at [email protected], or by cell at (425)-765-6006. Leah Skinner, club president, can be reached at [email protected], or (802)-999-3661. Call us, text us, or email us with anything.
I look forward to getting to know everyone and I pray for God’s hand on all of us this year.
P.S. If you are receiving this email, it is because we met you at the club fair and you filled out a connection card, or on your new student form you indicated an interest in Christian groups on campus or in going to church. If you would prefer not to receive these emails, please let me know and I will remove you from the list.
