AFC Weekend Trips are a great way to get connected with others and have fun while serving others to God’s glory.  This weekend there are two trips going out to work with youth groups:

Liberty (David Pollard)                             Nederland (Weston Jacobs)

Contact the trip leaders above to get more information or to sign up for the trip.  Weekend trips leave College Station on Friday and return early Sunday afternoon.  There is not cost to go on these ministry trips as transportation, housing and food are provided.

Student Orientation And Retreat

Register for SOAR HERE!

CALLING ALL NEW FRESHMAN AND TRANSFER STUDENTS STUDYING AT TEXAS A&M AND BLINN BEGINNING SUMMER AND FALL OF 2012!  We want to welcome you to Aggieland and especially to the Aggies For Christ.  SOAR is the AFC’s new student welcome retreat designed for you to get connected with an active and exciting community of shared faith.

SOAR is a great way to start the semester…meeting new friends who share your faith commitment, focusing on setting your priorities before classes start, getting away from the rush of moving in, and having fun out at Messiah’s Ranch.  The upperclassmen plan and prepare for these 3-4 days of adventure with your best interest in mind.

What A Great Weekend!

It was a special joy to spend time with future AFCers from the Class of 2016 and Class of 2017!  SHINE is the AFC welcome weekend for HS juniors and seniors and their parents.   Activities began on Friday evening and went through Sunday morning’s worship assembly at the A&M Church of Christ.  Here are a few photo highlights.
