This semester there are nine weekend trips planned. Here is a brief video report of the first three trips that went out earlier this semester. The last AFC Weekend trip will be held the weekend of November 2nd – 4th. Contact Kelly for trip information.
Each Wednesday this semester, be part of the AFC Oasis. The theme, “My Life God’s Story,” will feature faith-stories from Christians who have had challenges to overcome in their lives. This week we will hear from a former AFCer who has overcome several challenges to walk on the path of taking the Gospel to Asia. Text 979-229-1311 if you need a ride.
