Stephanie and Bellefield Presbyterian Church
Bellefield Church has made involvement easy for me because the congregation is so committed and welcoming to college students. I help to teach 2nd and 3rd grade Sunday school every other week, which has been such a joy because I really missed being around children while away at school.
Bellefield also recently established an Adopt-a-Student program, where I have been so blessed to have a couple serve as spiritual mentors and practically family for me. I think it is incredibly important for college students to really immerse themselves in a congregation where they can grow spiritually alongside young adults who are recently out of college, older people, and children, and I have loved the opportunity to have a church home away from home.
