College Room School Banners

We finally have a year round room for our college students! Yay! We will be painting and decorating it in the months to come to make it a comfortable and welcoming space for students to gather.

Based on student feedback, will be getting University/College pennants from each campus that our students attend. Since we are currently on a spending hold budget wise, I am asking that parents help us prep this space by donating a pennant from the University or College your student attends. If you are able to do so, please SIGN UP for your child’s school or email ">Caitie to confirm and turn it into the front desk.

Student Adoption Program

Are you a student wanting to stay connected to Providence Baptist Church? Are you a church member or parent interested in supporting our college students as they are away at school? Contact Caitie at to learn more about our Student Adoption Program.

Parent Resources

While our Summer Program is geared for College-aged Students, they aren’t the only one entering new territory Parents are also learning and growing alongside their young adult children as things begin to shift within the family system. Here are a few resources we hope you’ll find helpful during this time. We will continue to update them throughout the year so be sure to check back in!

BOOK DISCUSSION

Join us for an evening of discussion on Growing With by Kara Powell and Steve Argue. This is also a great opportunity to connect with other college parents!

Growing up doesn’t have to mean growing apart. Filled with brand-new research and real-life stories from remarkable families, Growing With shows you how to close the family gap, giving parents courage to take the next faithful step on a mutual journey of intentional growth that trusts God to transform you all. Discover strategies to help you invite doubt, rather than avoid it. Growing With will show you how to help your kids keep their roots, even as they spread their wings.”

There will be two dates offered to choose from… please check back as they will be announced soon.

PREPARING TO LAUNCH

Fuller Youth Institute has developed a resource to help families like yours have better conversations in the “launching” phase between adolescence and young adulthood.

Parents are often longing for better ways to talk about faith with their kids and to have deeper emotional connection with them. They just struggle to know how, or to reach out in ways that their kids might actually respond. As a response, they have created a  10-session guide that can be used individually, with a spouse or friend, or in a small group or class setting. Find the GUIDE here.

PODCAST

Listen along each week with a podcast available for you by the authors of Growing With. They host new guests weekly as they explore the challenges parents are facing and the questions they’re asking. These podcasts are easy to listen to and are only 25 minutes… that could be your drive to work! Subscribe HERE.
