We kicked off the new school year with our ACT UT Welcome Picnic the first week of classes. We were exceedingly happy with the large group of students who attended and all of those who helped make it such a success. We are already witnessing the fruit of that event in our group with new students and great enthusiasm.
Our Wednesday night Small Group Bible Study kicked off with the series “Guardrails” and we have had a wonderful response. We are excited to have our leaders and students participate in planning our Wednesday night Family Dinners.
Our students took the lead in staffing our Student Organizations Fair table. We reached out to many incoming students through this opportunity.
Our weekly Sunday night worship services have been an exciting time. We were so excited to be able to have a baptism following our August 30 service. God is moving and we can feel it! We are identifying new worship leaders both vocally and as instrumentalists. We consider this a ministry and leadership opportunity for our students. The response so far has been tremendous and we can’t wait to see what God will do next!
This month we begin our First Friday Family Film Festival at the ACT UT house. This fellowship and ACT community event will be built around showcasing some of the more “off the beaten track” Christian films that may not make it to our local theaters. We are excited about the interest we have already witnessed among our students!
We have been blessed in so many ways!
