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).

Share a brief testimony: I began serving the Lord and left a rebellious life when I was a senior in high school. However, I was serving Jesus mainly in order to avoid the consequences of not following Him. It was mechanical rather than out of a heart of love. The end of my freshmen year of college was when God changed my heart. I began to follow God, because I love His way. Since then, God has continued to help me grow and become established as a Christian. He gives indescribable peace and joy, I want to be the best servant I can be for Him and lead as many people to Him as possible. I’m thankful that his Christian experience and holiness is available to everyone.
Hey everyone! Get-Acquainted Days is coming soon! Want a taste of college before diving into a full semester? At Get-Acquainted Days, you’ll experience a preview of college life here at AWC. We can’t wait to see you there!

Choir 2021 was a fun, memorable time! There were many late nights and early mornings. We traveled 3,000 miles through 14 states! You can be sure there were lots of fun and crazy times on the bus, especially on the 13-hour drive day! On our day off, we were able to visit the St. Louis Arch!
The Choir sang in 7 states total and held 10 services. There were many memorable services, including when the power went out right before service was to start and when service was held in an old 1800’s church building! God came and met in a special way more than once in the services!
Singspiration is always a highlight here at AWC. This year was no different! It was held for the first time in our new D.R. Kaufman building! Many families and church groups traveled in to attend this annual event. It was a time of praise and worship to God. Thank you to each one who had a part in the special songs. The evening ended with a time of fellowship, snacks, and rousing games of volleyball and basketball.
Contentment in Christ
Philippians 4:11 states, “Not that speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content.”
Webster defines contentment as “the quality or state of being content.” Contentment is a state of satisfaction or peaceful happiness. As Christians our contentment is in Christ; our joy should entirely be found in Him. The amplified Bible interprets Philippians 4:11 as, “Not that I speak from (any personal) need, for I have learned to be content (and self-sufficient through Christ, satisfied to the point where I am not disturbed or uneasy) regardless of my circumstances.” The apostle Paul was content because he saw his life from God’s point of view. When we learn to see from God’s point of view instead of just our own, we can then learn to be content with what He has for us.
Horatio G. Spafford wrote the famous words, “Whatever my lot, Thou hast taught me to say, It is well with my soul.” Even in difficult times, we can be content when our hearts are clear before God. Often we have a tendency to be discontent with where God has placed us or with what He has given us. To be contentment, we must learn to have a grateful attitude, realizing that God is in complete control.
