Washington, DC attracts thousands of college students and interns every year. The college years are ripe for spiritual growth and we welcome all who wish to join us at our church. Our primary ministry to students is twofold: the public teaching of God’s Word in which the good news of Jesus Christ is proclaimed, and the relationships in our community of believers that gather to be built up by that Word.
The following are ways that students and interns can get involved in engaging with God’s Word and in building relationships with other followers of Jesus at CHBC:
1) College and Intern Bible Study
CHBC hosts a weekly college and intern Bible study during the summer months.
2) Attend our monthly college and intern lunch
Once a month, a college and intern lunch will be held after morning service in the church basement. Come and hear one of the pastors from our church talk about the morning message and do Q&A, meet other college students and interns, and get a free meal!
Upcoming lunch dates: 10/2, 11/6, 12/5, 2/5/23, 3/5/23, 4/2/23, 5/7/23
3) Attend Wednesday night Bible study at CHBC
For those you who have visited in the past and attended one of our intern-only Bible studies on Tuesday evenings, we have decided to do something different starting this semester. Instead, we encourage all interns and students to attend the weekly Wednesday night Bible study, held in the West Hall at 7pm, which is a better venue for you to meet and engage with other people who go to CHBC.
In addition, Patrick Hulehan and Ryan Donaldson are having people over to their place for dinner every Wednesday evening after Bible study ends, starting in February. They live at #10 5th Street NE, which is right across the street from church. You are welcome to go every week, but we will have specially designated college/intern nights on February 16, March 16, and April 20..
4) Get paired up with another member or family from church
If you'd like to be paired up with a family from church while you're here, or be paired up with a member to hang out one on one, please email Amy Rogers. This is a great way to intentionally get to know others in a smaller setting. Lots of great friendships and long lasting relationships have been formed this way!
