Praise Under The Stars~Thursdays

Devo9-14Devo…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
