Aggies For Truth
Attending college is an exciting and special phase in a person’s life, when many life changes occur. Students learn and grow, often developing opinions, beliefs, and perspectives which they will hold for the rest of their lives. As such, it is important to have a strong system for spiritual development and support, and Aggies for Truth strives to fulfill this need. Aggies for Truth is the campus ministry of the Bryan/College Station (BCS) church of Christ and is overseen by the elders there. We seek to strengthen students’ faith and knowledge of the scriptures as well as provide a network of friendships with other Christians that will last for life. We have several organized activities including prayer meetings, singing nights, devotionals, and service projects. We pray that through our actions, the Lord our God is both pleased and glorified (Col 3.12-17; Matt 5.16).
Our mission is to comprehend, confirm, clarify, and convey the Truth with fellow Aggies from the Holy Bible, without any bias.
- Comprehend: to understand the meaning accurately
- Confirm: to verify that our understanding is correct and well-founded
- Clarify: to make our understanding precise
- Convey: to share the Truth with as many as possible
College Bible Study:
Every Thursday evening, we meet together to enjoy an evening of fellowship and study. We start off with a home-cooked meal. After that, we sing a few hymns and songs of praise, then begin our Bible study. Our theme for this semester is "Messianic Prophesies". The meal starts at 7:00pm and study begins at 8:00pm; if you are unable to come for the meal, you are welcome to come just for the study. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the address and more information.
On the last Thursday of each month, we meet on campus for a student-led study. In this study we
aim to utilize the 8 laws of hermeneutics to properly understand what the text is portraying. Topics vary monthly and typically are centered around a single text or a pressing issue of the church. The time and location for each meeting is determined as needed and sent out via GroupMe. Please contact us at email@example.com to be added to the GroupMe.
Once or twice a semester, students will travel to a congregation in the surrounding area to do a congregational visit. These events usually take place over a weekend and can include service projects, door knocking, fellowship meals, devotionals, and worship. Activities are determined on a case-by-case basis, and we will frequently stay in the host congregation members’ housing. These events allow us to meet other brethren in the surrounding area and encourage each other to keep up the good fight (1 Timothy 6:12).
Semester Guest Speaker Event:
Once a semester, on the last Thursday of the month before finals, we host a guest speaker event where we encourage anyone from our Aggie community to join and have a Bible study. These studies typically are centered around spiritual problems in the college environment. The time and location for each meeting is determined as needed and sent out via GroupMe. Please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org for the address and more information.
In the spring semester, we host a college retreat where students from schools across Texas are invited to retreat from our busy lives, participate in Bible study, and fellowship. The dates and location for retreat is determined each semester and sent out via GroupMe. Please contact us at email@example.com to be added to the GroupMe.
