TONIGHT, October 1st, before Oasis, from 5:30PM – 6:30PM in the AFC Center, we have the opportunity to enjoy two special treats…
#1) Home-smoked brisket (donated by one of our church members)!
#2) A presentation by Ukrainian believers about the crisis Christians are facing in Ukraine.
Ukrainian evangelist, Zhenya Dovzhenko and his wife Anya, are in the United States and have agreed to speak to us about the crisis in their country and help us learn how the violence and unrest is impacting the church.
Zhenya and Anya will tell personal stories of current Christian persecution and bring to our awareness other dire humanitarian issues. Over the past few years, several of our members have worked alongside this couple in Ukraine. As we learn more about the current crisis, we will be able to join the suffering in Ukraine through intercessory prayer.
Everyone is invited to this special event. Brisket, side and homemade desserts will be served starting at 5:15PM in the AFC Center. See you there!
AFC groups are out serving this weekend in Hempstead and Bertram!

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!”

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.

Gig ‘em and God bless!
