College Care Ministry is a TMUMC ministry that pairs Trietsch college students with church sponsors. The sponsor prays for the student and sends occasional cards, notes, or sometimes little goodies to help the student feel connected to their home church while they are off at college. 

Another school year is about to start.  We invite you to continue to support and bless our wonderful Trietsch youth as they go through this amazing stage of life!  If you would like to sign your student up for the 2022-23 school year or volunteer to sponsor one of our Trietsch youth, please sign up below.  

What is the College Care Ministry?

It is a TMUMC ministry that pairs Trietsch college students with Trietsch sponsors.  The Sponsor prays for the student and sends cards or little goodies/care packages to help the student feel connected to their home church while they are off at college.

Who can sign up?

This ministry is for all college students, but it is especially helpful to new freshman away from home for the first time. Parents can sign their TMUMC college student up as soon as you know your child’s college address.  We need parents and others to sign up as Sponsors as well.  If you sign your child up, please prayerfully consider being a Sponsor for a student as well!  

What is the commitment of a Sponsor?

It is a nine month (one school year) commitment to pray for your assigned student(s) and to send occasional cards or little goodies.  The goal is to get the college kids to stay connected to their church home while they are away at school.  If you have a particular student you would like to sponsor, please let me know!

When do I sign up?
