February Fun!

The spring semester is well underway, and God is at work on our many campuses!  There are three special events that I'd like to share with you: Winter Camp, SMU Kickoff, and Open House.

Winter Camp

The UTA crew at Winter Camp!

Our annual Winter Camp gets better every year!  This year we had over 600 people in attendance for a long weekend at Sky Ranch.  The weekend was packed with worship, games, food, friendship, talks by the FOCUS staff (myself included) and others, and most importantly, an opportunity to experience God together as a community.

One of the most memorable parts of this Winter Camp was dancing together during worship as Leeann and Renee, two of our UTA Corefas, led the group in some simple movements inspired by the words of the worship songs.  Most of us looked a little silly as we tried to follow along, but I think this activity helped us to quit thinking about how we looked and enjoy the chance to praise our God together.

If you're interested in hearing any of the talks from Winter Camp, they are available by clicking here.

SMU Kickoff

I don't have any pictures, but we had our very first FOCUS meeting at SMU!  God brought a handful of interested students to that meeting, and we keep finding more connections with people at SMU who want to be a part of what God is doing on that campus.  Please keep SMU and the students there in your prayers as we plan for the future of FOCUS there.  And if you know any students or staff there who would be interested, please let me know!

UTA Open House

The room is University Hall 121 - Please join us!

This coming Saturday, you are invited to Open House at UTA!  We will have a special event to invite students' families, professors, and other community members to see what FOCUS at UTA is all about.  You are invited to this fun time!  Please let me know if you plan to attend.

God is at work on our campuses.  Please keep us in your prayers, and thank you for your support of FOCUS!
