Paul Harvey, an American radio broadcaster, was known for ending his reports with his trademark phrase "and now you know....the rest of the story". As we begin the Spring launch of students graduating from our ministry, the rest of the story is about to begin!
Over the weekend we hosted our annual Graduates Dinner, and each Senior received a CSF mug with "&" on the back as a reminder of what we're praying about what "the rest of the story" will be for them. The vision of CSF is that we would see students be disciples who make disciples, while on campus & for the rest of their lives. Whether they're going on for more education or entering the work force, we want to see these disiciples continue to make disciples. The rest of the story....the "& for the rest of their lives" starts now!
Please RSVP here or by calling gretchen at (217)414-9198
