AUGUST 24-26, 2014
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.

SHINE – AFC’s Welcome Weekend For HS Juniors & Seniors
Choosing a college is a tough decision! There are so many great choices! Even after you make your decision and know where you want to go to school, it’s quite hard to imagine what life will be like there. How do I find a roommate? Is it hard to make friends? What about finding a new church family? We want to help! Maybe it’s not as scary as you think! Check out this fun video…
This year’s AFC freshman class is inviting all juniors and seniors in high school to a weekend of getting to know more about college life in the AFC and in Aggieland. Whether you are just exploring all your options, or already committed to A&M or Blinn (Bryan), join us for a weekend taste of college life.
There will be games, food, time to get to know fellow students, a tour of campus, an Aggie yell practice and even a really cool t-shirt! The cost is $30 for everything from Friday night until Sunday morning church. A complete schedule will be posted soon.
There is also a parent track with representatives from Texas A&M and the AFC for parents or guardians who are looking for ways they can help prepare you (and themselves) for this new chapter of life.
Mark your calendar… April 25-27, 2014. For any questions, contact Kelly Davidson or Paige Robinson.

Due to inclement weather, Texas A&M is suspending all non-essential functions beginning at 8PM. For this reason, our normal Thursday night Devo will not be held on campus. However, for anyone wanting go out into this crazy, cold weather and who promises to drive safely, there will be a Devo gathering tonight at the A&M Church of Christ auditorium up front around the baptistry, starting at 9PM. Enter from the doors at the end of the Great Hall. Praise God, stay warm and be safe!
