A double-Fridea that I’ve posted before but gives you something great to consider for the week after students return!

Why not put some extra effort into recruitment in January? I think this is one of our most-missed opportunities to draw students to our college ministries. Plenty of students will be looking for something to do, will have a new schedule, will transfer in, will come back from studying abroad, never got well-connected in the fall…

…and…

Consider holding a Winter Break “reunion” before your first Large Group Meeting. Let your students reconnect with each other early so they can be “outward focused” to welcome guests at the Large Group. Plus, this can be a neat way to debrief with your students about what God did or challenges they faced over the break.
