AWC 4 U
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.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me with the information below. You can also reach out to us using the live chat feature (blue button at the bottom right).

Fall is in the air along with all the fall activities! Last week was our annual fall fest day for staff and students. Classes were cancelled, and students cleaned the campus in the morning.

Last week was library Week. The library staff went above and beyond this year to make sure it was a fun week for all. They provided book giveaways, bookworms, book brew (free iced coffee all week), blind dates (with a book), and rousing games of bookend mini golf. Several afternoons, Mrs. Hardy came and had story time with the area kids. The library turned into a fun place to hang out instead of a quiet place to study! But don’t worry, that was only for a few days. Everything is back to being serenely quiet again today! Thanks to the library staff for making this a fun week and highlighting our wonderful library!
Searching for Something?
by Jessica Tomek, Senior
Many people search for riches, fame, happiness, worldly pleasures… and the list goes on and on. However, most find misery, heartbreak, loneliness, and sorrow. This is sad, and it is also NOT God’s will for us. In Matthew 6, Jesus teaches us to pray, after which he continues to discuss the many needs of human beings such as, money, daily bread, clothes, eternal life, etc. In Verse 33 He states, “But seek ye first the Kingdom of God and HIS righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.” What does this mean? If we have Jesus in our hearts, He will supply our needs. Does this mean life will be all easy-peasy lemon-squeezy? Not necessarily, yet God is faithful! If we seek Him with EVERY thing in us, He will be found. In Him, we have everything we need here on earth. Most importantly, after death, we will have an eternal life in heaven with Him!
When Israel was in a time of trials and exile, God told them in Jeremiah 29:13, “ye shall seek me and FIND me, when he shall search for me with ALL your heart.” They did and found His promises are true. You can trust Him; He doesn’t fail. Psalm 9:10 states, “And they that know thy name will put their trust in thee: for thou, LORD, hast not forsaken them that seek thee.” Seek Him; even if you are a Christian, continue to seek, love, and obey Him because in Him you have everything! If you have not sought Him, you are missing out! If you are struggling in your seeking or have not yet found Him, I Chronicles 16:11 says, “Seek the LORD and his strength, seek his face continually.” I would encourage you to continually seek Him! Seek God and find Him. He loves you, He is faithful, and He can and will be found! When there seem to be no answers, He is the answer to what you are searching for!
A new school year has started!! We are excited to welcome 24 new students this year! Registration is up this year for a total of 80 students. We thank the Lord for giving us a great student body and are looking forward to an awesome semester this fall!
Proclaim and Rejoice traveled over 17,000 miles combined and visited a total of 25 states this summer! Rejoice did a western tour and traveled through the Southwest and then on to California, Montana and South Dakota. Proclaim attended 8 camps in the East and the Midwest. In addition to camps, they held many services. We’re thankful for God’s protection and strength He gave the groups this summer!
The groups usually get a few days off in the summer to do some sightseeing. This year Proclaim was able to visit Niagara Falls and the Smoky Mountains during their travels. Rejoice got to visit the Grand Canyon and camped out in Yellowstone National Park! Overall the summer was a success. Both groups are travel-worn and ready to catch up on rest!!
