Some Of Last Year's Fun
Girls, don’t let any guy be left out, ask them to be a part of either one or both nights of activities. Sadie Hawkins events will be this Friday and Saturday nights. Here is what is planned:
Friday: meet in the AFC Center at 6:30 PM dressed as a famous couple and get ready for a super fun photo scavenger hunt. Eat dinner before arriving and please bring a camera!
Saturday: meet in the AFC Center at 6:30 PM to play games (dress comfy) and get ready to watch the video from the scavenger hunt the night before. Snacks will be provided.
Thanks to the AFC Sophomore Girls for planning this fun event!!
Groups Ready To Head Out
Weekend trips are fun, rewarding, encouraging and a great way to connect with others. Almost every Friday afternoon of the semester AFCers will gather in the parking lot and board a bus to head out for an unknown adventure. Since the host churches are in charge of what we do, where we stay and even what we eat…no one truly knows all that will take place. Usually we join up with the youth from our host congregations to do work projects, have fun, lead devotionals, do skit shows, help teach classes…and on and on. There is no cost to go on a weekend trip and this is also a great way to meet new friends. This weekend there are four groups out serving in Brownwood, Palestine, Oak Grove and Houston (Northwest).
AFC Weekend Trip - Fredricksburg
Two AFC Weekend Trips are out this weekend. They will be partnering with their host churches in service projects in Fredricksburg and Jersey Village. The groups departed on Friday night and will return Sunday afternoon. A total of thirteen trips are scheduled for this semester.
AFC Weekend Trip - Jersey Village
There is no better time to go on an AFC Weekend Trip than the first part of the semester. Right from the start, its a great way to make new friends, focus on spiritual things and be blessed by serving all during a time of minimal study pressure. There is no cost to go on a weekend trip. You’ll head out late Friday afternoon and return early Sunday afternoon. This weekend there are two groups headed out… to Jersey Village and Fredricksburg. Check the AFC Calendar for trips on upcoming weekends. For more information contact Kelly Davidson.
This year the Aggies For Christ will celebrate 40 years of “week-long” ministry trips to assist children home ministries. The first trip began with a bus breaking down in Arkansas and the 12 students along with College Minister, Bob Davidson, spent several days at Southern Christian Children’s Home in Morrilton, Arkansas. While there, they played with the kids, encouraged the house parents and did service projects for the Home. Since then, it has become a 40-year AFC tradition.
This year, about 120 AFCers are planning to spend the last week of their Christmas break doing exactly what started with the original 12 Aggies For Christ in 1972. They will be going in groups of 15-25 to eight different children’s homes in Texas and Oklahoma.
Thursday was a “dead-day” with no classes and all students were expected to study and prepare for finals. However, some of the group going to Boles Home next month for an AFC Weeklong trip, decided they wanted to do a service project to practice serving and as well as begin the process of bonding as a group. They spent two hours helping clean out a garage, replace light bulbs, hang mirrors and a clock on a wall and putting up Christmas decorations. All were blessed!
Tomorrow, yeah, finals start… but if you really want to let your brain rest and do something invigorating, show up to assist with a food distribution at the Lincoln House of Hope near the Lincoln Center in College Station. From 8:20 – 10:30 AM, volunteers are needed to help distribute food to families in our area struggling to make ends meet. This is a first come, first served give away. Bring your friends and roommates, park at the Lincoln Center and walk down the street to 409 Holleman Dr. in College Station. Volunteers are especially needed to welcome those receiving food and help them get the food to their nearby home or car.
