AWC 4 U

The inside scoop
Hey Everyone!

I want to take a moment and welcome you to this “4 U” page! Please take a few minutes to look around.

We have created this page especially for you to give you an inside perspective of college life as well as a way for you to be the first to find out about any upcoming events or activities that we have planned.

Each week we will be uploading something new to this page – like a photo, video or game.

Once a month you will have an opportunity to participate in a monthly challenge where you can receive some great prizes.

Along the way, we will be posting devotionals specifically for you that will encourage and strengthen you in your faith.

Spend a few minutes and check out the videos below.
