Soup for Students Report

Thank you to all who brought food or volunteered for Soup for Students last night. Because of your faithfulness, we were able to serve 197 students. We had over 30 pots of home-made soup, pizza, salad, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and cookies. It was a tremendous blessing to see students arriving even before 6:00 PM. We then prayed, opened the lines, and they were off. One student commented how this event is always an "oasis" for her and her friends in the midst of finals week. We had about 15 volunteers who were busy assembling the pizzas, swapping out empty pots of soup, and refilling water at the tables. Toward the end of the event, we were realizing we'd have some soup left over, so I texted Donnie Keele, the assistant dean at Meier Hall. He said, "If you bring any soup over here, it will all be gone by 10:15 PM." So we did just that. We packed the leftovers into to-go cups, and brought soup to the girls and the boys dorm. What an honor it is to partner together to show demonstrate God’s love towards students on our campus.

Nominating Committee Name Change Board Vote

The PMC Board voted on Nov. 11 to follow the recommendation of David Nowack, the Nominating Committee chair, to change the name of the Nominating Committee: it is now the Volunteer Engagement Committee or VEC for short. The change is the result of consultations with the pastoral staff and others to create a name that reflects the actions of the Committee and make it more understandable for the visitor, guest or new member.
