Crossland Community Church unveils Wi-Fi Cafe for students in need

BOWLING GREEN Ky.-A local church is pitching in to help students learn during the pandemic.

Crossland Community Church has unveiled a program called the Wi-Fi Cafe. This is a service provided for local students who may need access to reliable Wi-Fi to work on school assignments, especially those students who may not be able to attend in-person classes.

The church will be open Monday through Thursday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m., and again from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m. to give students a chance to utilize the Wi-Fi free of charge.

Anyone participating must bring their own device, and volunteers will be available if help is needed.

The Wi-Fi Cafe is part of the church’s Love Local mission, something church staff say they’re glad to be a part of.

“It’s so awesome to be a part of Crossland and a part of what we’re doing. We’re trying to find ways to get out in the community and help people that have a need. This was a need that was brought to our attention. We just wanted to respond and be able to provide a solution to the families that do have this need,” said Crossland Community Church children’s director Alissa Stratton.

Both volunteer and students forms for the Wi-Fi Cafe are now available on the church’s website
