Devo…an AFC Tradition for over 40 years, will meet tonight at Academic Plaza for some uplifting praise under the stars and a short, encouraging message. We’ll be meeting every Thursday of the semester. Everyone is welcome to take a study break and join this gathering of believers who love to sing praise to our gracious God. It gets started around 9PM and is usually finished by 9:45PM.
“O our God, we thank you and praise your glorious name!”
1 Chronicles 29:13
Wednesday nights this semester we are being challenged by the Class of ’15 to carefully examine our hearts for any divided loyalty that might distract us from our true devotion to God. We meet in the AFC Center from 7PM until 8:15PM. There will also be lots of encouraging praise as well as involvement time for those wanting to find ways to connect and serve. Everyone is welcome!
This week we’ll examine how Jacob’s burning desire for his father’s approval led him to compromise his values by cheating and stealing what wasn’t rightfully his (Genesis 27 & 28).
The Rice Owls swoop into Kyle Field Saturday to battle the Texas Aggies at 8 PM. Stop by the Aggies For Christ pre-game cookout for some food, hydration and great fellowship. Here is how you can find the location of this week’s gathering in Spence Park.
Everyone is welcome. Food served from 6-7:30PM.
After about 10 months of constant construction, Kyle Field is ready to open its gates and welcome the 12th Man into its expanded and newly renovated home! A capacity crowd of over 106,000 fans are expected! The AFC will be hosting a pre-game cookout at Spence Park and everyone is welcome. It’s a great place to meet up, hydrate and enjoy some nourishment before the game. Food will be served from 4:00 PM until 5:30 PM. Below is a map of where to look for the AFC Tents. Be looking for the Aggies For Christ banner hanging from the tent, about 20-30 yards off the sidewalk on Houston Street.
Gig ‘em and God bless!

Because Blinn is beginning their classes earlier than A&M, we have changed the dates for SOAR so everyone has the opportunity to attend. The dates for the SOAR retreat are now August 24-26. Plan to be at the A&MCofC building by 5PM on Sunday August 24th to board buses and head out to Messiah’s Ranch. We’ll be back in town by 5PM on Tuesday, August 26th. The entire week will be filled with lots of fun gatherings to help new students get connected and find a place. Below are details.
SOAR (Student Orientation And Retreat) is the Aggies For Christ new student welcome retreat for incoming freshman and transfer students. It’s the best way to start the semester…focusing on what’s important in life and building solid friendships with others who share your faith commitment.
