This is a dinner signup for our Tuesday Night Worship time called "The Outlet". We start the night with a dinner at 6pm that we need help with filling nights for churches to serve. We usually have around 125 at our Tuesday night dinner, however emailing or calling ahead of time to double check numbers is fine. We would greatly appreciate if you can provide the full meal (main dish, sides, desert, drinks, and plates, cups, napkins, etc). College students are not picky and will eat most anything you put in front of them. Suggestions for main dishes that have been a hit are pizza, pasta, casseroles, burgers/hotdogs, soup/chili & sandwich, potato bar, nachos, chick-fil-a, burritos/tacos, BBQ, etc.
For the safety of our students, we are asking that volunteers who cook or serve the meal be fully vaccinated against Covid-19. You will receive a phone call from a student leader a few days before your meal date. If for some reason you do not receive a phone call, please contact us immediately to make sure your signup date is correct.
Our purpose of this dinner is three fold.
1) A great meal provided by a campus church (close to BCM) and/or heavy sending church (several students coming from your church to ETSU/Milligan/Northeast). This is a great outreach for us and of course an awesome way for churches to serve and connect with our ministry.
2) We heavily encourage a pastor or two (Lead Pastor, Youth/College Pastor, Associate Pastor) to come and join us the night their church serves the meal. This is a HUGE touch point as the college students here can really get to know you and they can also ask questions directly about your church and the activities and services that might appeal to them.
3) By having a local church come and serve us directly with a pastor or two coming with them, the pastor or youth pastor can bring high school juniors and seniors to our dinner and worship. This allows for an easy, dynamic, and fun way to engage students who might attend our BCM (or an out of town BCM) in the near future. They can join us and see how their faith can thrive in college!
