Interfaith Ministry at Kent State Stark and Stark State College
We staff an informational table five times a semester where we invite students to enter a drawing to the college’s bookstore. The entry slip also allows the student to include a prayer request. These prayer requests are handed out to some of our members. We try to engage in conversation and see if there is any additional support that we may offer including our food pantry at the church. We often have a number of books that church members have donated that are free for students to take. Our church works with the Interfaith Campus Ministry’s Executive Director, Ryan Johanning.
Interfaith Campus Preschool and Child Care Center
Since 1977, Interfaith Campus Preschool and Child Care Center has taken a stand to support the children of the surrounding universities and community. A joint effort developed by Interfaith Campus Ministry, John Knox Presbyterian Church, State College, Kent State University, the State of Ohio aspired to bring a safe, affordable, accessible, and high-quality learning environment to the local populace. Over 40 years later, this ambition has matured into a flourishing reality.Our church interacts with the preschool throughout the year. We provide weekly mystery readers, book drives, spring container garden preparation, and teacher appreciation luncheon. https://mycampuspreschool.com/
