After days, full of welcome week events, here at A2F we saved our biggest event for last -- also known as New Student Welcome Night!
This year we were able to meet over 800 students! We began the event with a video to show what our group is about and a skit which humorously described the types of people who come into college; People with big ambitions, yet deep inside still rooted with insecurity and a longing for acceptance. We then ended the program with had an engaging talk based on the Parable of the Rich Fool of Luke 12, which talked about the frailty and temporal nature of things in this world, and that life shouldn't really just consist of gathering possessions . Rather, we should pursue the answer to bigger and deeper questions of life, which ultimately led to an invitation to learn about Christianity and what it has to say regarding these questions this upcoming school year.
Of course per tradition, we ended the night with a Korean BBQ dinner, in addition to root beer floats as we set booths by college so students who were interested in joining a homegroup could meet eachother! Throughout the night, there were many stories of people who not only enjoyed the program, but really wanted to learn more about Christianity in the future. Hopefully, many people can look back at this night and say "This is how ____ started ". Looking forward to the begin the new school year!
