Welcome Back, Students!

Grace and Peace to you!

Welcome back to campus or, if you are new, welcome to OSU and the beginning of the new school year.  We look forward to seeing you and welcoming you in person.  As you are settling in over these next few weeks, we invite you to share in any or all of the following:

Monday through Friday each week, 9 AM to 6 PM:  You are welcome to WestM (the building) to find a quiet spot close to campus and suitable for a nap, studying between classes, meeting study partners, enjoying some tea of cocoa, space for prayer and meditation, or a conversation with Tim Stover, our campus minister.

Sundays each week:  Our ministry partners, the local churches listed on the bar to the left of this posting, offer a warm welcome for you to join them in worship, for special meals, and/or to find a place to share your own gifts in ministry.  Click on each church to check their web site for particular information about event times and descriptions.

Tuesday evenings:  We share an active role in the Stone Soup Kitchen Ministry of the Corvallis community – a ministry to provide a meal each day for the hungry of the community.  Specifically, we are responsible for the evening meal on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of each month through 1st Christian Church, one of our ministry partners.  We look to students as volunteers to help prepare and serve this meal under the supervision of Tim Stover, campus minister.  No particular skills are required – only a spirit willing to serve and to connect with the folks we serve.  Contact Tim (tim.stover@gmail.com) for details or to volunteer.

Wednesday evening Student Gathering:  Each Wednesday evening we gather for a free home-cooked meal beginning at 5:30 PM which is followed by a time of Bible study and fellowship between 6:30 and 7:30 PM.  All OSU and LBCC students are welcome.  We will get started for the new term with a Welcome Back BBQ on 9/28/11.

Saturday, 10/1/11, Cider Pressing Party:  Join us for an old-fashioned cider pressing party which is a great way to meet some new folks or to celebrate with old friends as we crank up the vintage apple grinder and cider press at the Juntenen family farm.  Meet at WestM at 2 PM and we will carpool to the farm.  No charge.  You may want to bring a clean container to take some cider home.  We will also have extra jugs to share.

We look forward to sharing the journey with you this new school year.  Please let us know how we may be of support to you.

Shalom,

Timothy Stover

    Is this the website for Stover, Evey, and Jackson? ;-D Seriously, I was amazed to find your name associated with westM and not surprised at all. I was trying to remember something that John Connors was involved with when I first ran into him in high school. I think it was called world banquet of plenty, or something like that. Do you know if there is any periodical literature (or any write ups) about that event? Have you ever heard of it? Nice to be in touch again, I hope you can see my email below, and I wish I could come down to something like Stone Soup, or the Cider press. I’ll stop by next time I’m in Corvallis. -Trey
