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.

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).

Devotional

Stop, T.H.I.N.K, Pray, Speak!

by Laura Reese

Raise your hand if you have been ever been guilty of gossiping, backbiting or lying! While I am not serious about you literally raising your hand, every single one of us have been guilty of harmful speech. We all love to talk, right? Most of us talk a lot, perhaps even more than we should! However, speech is not a bad thing. It is a wonderful gift God has given to us in order to communicate with others. Surprisingly, God uses language as the primary way for people to share the Gospel message!

As you can see, speech can be good or bad, helpful or harmful. It all depends on how people use language. Ephesians 4:29 says, “Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen.” 

Unfortunately, many of us speak first and think later. Yet, words are powerful and can never be erased. Words can only be forgiven, not forgotten. Next time before you jump headfirst into the conversation, stop and T.H.I.N.K. about your words. Try asking yourself these questions provided by Lee Colan, T.-is it true? H.-is it helpful? I.-is it inspiring? N.-is it necessary? K.-is it kind?. 

If right speech is something you struggle with, pray and ask Jesus to help you! The Psalmist said, “Set a guard over my mouth, LORD; keep watch over the door of my lips” (Psalm 141:3). Jesus will be faithful to guide you into speech that will be uplifting, encouraging and glorifying to God!

New Semester, New beginnings

A new semester has begun, and with it other exciting, new beginnings! The old gym has been renovated and now holds three new classrooms. The professors and students have enjoyed getting to use these new facilities. Located in the front of this building is the most exciting new thing around here- a coffee shop! The students are so excited to have their own coffee shop right here on campus! “The Daily Grind” has become a favorite place to do homework or to just simply hang out and drink coffee! We are so thankful for how God has blessed our campus! If you’re ever in the area, stop by and try a latte or iced tea from “The Daily Grind”!
