Christ Church is actively involved in serving Oberlin College students during the school year. The Rector hosts frequent lunches and other meals at the Rectory during the semesters and winter term. This quiet time affords a change from the pace (and cuisine) of life as a student. Parishioners volunteer to be “host families” to college students, and this has fostered many long-lasting Oberlin friendships.
Oberlin College students are encouraged to join in the worship and parish life of Christ Church. Students actively share ministry leadership as acolytes, choir members, musicians, lectors, church school teachers and outreach coordinators.
Members of the Parish family who are associated with the college as faculty and staff are often available to meet with students for lunch on campus and lead Bible study/discussion groups.
Please speak with the Rector if you would be interested in having a host family or would like to attend other activities around college outreach – email firstname.lastname@example.org.
