As a scared and lonely freshman, I joined the Longwood- Hampden Sydney Baptist Campus Ministries. From the first time that I stepped into the building, this group of amazing people was so welcoming. This organization has allowed me to grow as a person in the short time that I have been involved. Each Thursday, we have Connections, which is when we all gather for dinner provided by different churches in the Farmville area and then worship along with playing games. In addition to Connections, Bible Study is held on Tuesdays along with many weekend activities and events such as bonfires and community service events. Also, at the end of the semester, we gather before exams start and have Finals Dinner, which is the last meeting of the semester. At the end of the school-year, this organization holds the BCM Ball, which allows us to dress up a little bit and have fun before the school year is over. The picture below was taken at the last bonfire of the year.
