Hello CCSC Family! As we wind down on another semester here at Arkansas Tech, we can't help but reflect on the way God is working in the lives of students. This semester has been one of special growth and deepening relationships. We covet your prayers and support as we close out the Fall semester and look to the Spring!
We've put together this newsletter to highlight some of the things that have happened over the past semester. What is included is only a fraction of life here at the CCSC. To stay up-to-date, be sure to follow us online and on social media here:

Merry Christmas & God bless,
Hello CCSC family! Tomorrow we are participating in Giving Tuesday with the goal of raising $5000 and 5 monthly giving partners. As you all might know, this ministry is supported by churches, friends, and alumni -- people who love this ministry and want to see it continue here at ATU.
Due to the nature of things, financial support comes and goes as churches and families work to establish their budgets for the new year, and as they see what they can and can't do. It's a normal part of raising support for ministries and groups such as ours. As a result we are always looking for churches and alumni that want to partner with us to help support this ministry. Giving Tuesday is one of those times we push for donations and also look to find monthly giving partners.
Will you prayerfully consider partnering with our ministry? Your contribution -- whether it's one-time or monthly -- will make a huge impact! You can donate $5 or $500 or whatever is best for you! Any amount can be chosen for either the one-time donations or in setting up a monthly giving amount. Every little bit helps!!!
Please let me know if you have any questions or need help. Thank you all for your continued love and support!
Visit ccscatu.org/give to make a one-time donation or become a monthly giving partner.
What's up CCSC'ers? Thanks for tuning in! Here's what our week will look like:
This week is REgroup week! If you haven't had your group meet already, be sure and check in to know the time and place to meet! This week will be our introduction week, so this is the time to really start to get to know your groupmates!
Friday night at 7pm, we will meet for Midweek! That is our weekly worship service where we congregate together to hear a powerful message, brought to you by THE Jake Greer, and spend some time in passionate worship. Along with the service, there will be freshly baked cookies to eat!
Sunday morning at 9am, be sure to meet us at the Greer's house for some coffee with a devo presented by the one and ONLY Brent Ruple. After our devo, we will walk across the street to West Side CoC to worship with our church family.
Sunday afternoon, meet at Craig and Jess Davis' house (238 S Seattle Ave) for free food and conversation. It's a great way to get to know other students and some older church members! This will happen directly after West Side's worship service.
A couple of announcements:
Be sure to sign up for the float trip by September 13th! That's this Thursday! And that doesn't mean you have to pay the $10.00 quite yet. Just sign up and worry about that later if you need to! We will float the Buffalo with Arkansas State's Wolflife and we will be meeting with the Riverside CoC. Bring some floating clothes and an upbeat spirit!
If you would like to get to know some folks from West Side, sign up for Adopt-a-Student. This is a program where a family will "adopt" you and get to know you. I highly recommend being involved with this! It's another great opportunity to mingle with the older generation!
Thanks again for tuning in! I hope to see y'all this week!
Welcome back everyone! I hope your first week was a great kickstart to the year! Now, this week we are wrapping up our Fall Blitz, but no need to worry, because we've got a few action-packed events left!
TONIGHT (8/28) we are having 90's skate night! Come dressed for some 90's throwback skating and bring an appetite for some soda floats! Be prepared to make some new friends as well! We will be partnering with The Bridge campus ministry! Meet us at the roller rink (1102 E 2nd Street) at 7pm, or meet us at the CCSC at 6:20pm to carpool over there!
WEDNESDAY (8/29), meet us for our weekly Midweek at 7pm. Jake will be bringing us a message, accompanied by some phenomenal worship. At Midweek, we will have signups for REgroups (our relational small groups), for the fall float trip, and for a team of folks who are motivated to get involved in helping us prepare and run our events. If you feel called to do so, we would love to get you involved!
THURSDAY (8/30), join us at the Taylor's house (371 Cliff Rd) at 6pm for a pool party! There will be free food, free friends, and free fun! You're not going to want to miss it!
That's it for Fall Blitz, but be sure to stay involved throughout the semester! We'll be implementing REgroups, Monday night events, retreats, Gulf Coast Getaway, and MORE!
One final note before I let you go... This weekend is family weekend. That sounds really neat, and it is! Basically, we close the CCSC building at noon on Friday and for the rest of the weekend! And since it's Labor day weekend, we won't open back up until Tuesday morning. Be sure to go home and grill some burgers with the family! If you happen to be in town, We'll still be having Sunday morning class and worship at the Greer's house.
Thanks for tuning in everyone! Hope to see you sometime this week!
