RECAP: The Amazing Race

RECAP: The Amazing Race

This past Friday, we met as a large group for our TFN bible study. Pastor Timothy delivered the second message in our "Cries of the Heart" series. And as another one of the cries in all of our hearts is the impending winter that is quickly approaching, we thought we'd take advantage of a warm night to run around the campus for our post-TFN activity!

For the first time ever, we played "The Amazing Race," which is equal parts photo scavenger hunt, wacky challenges, and straight up foot race. We scoured the campus looking for coins, pushing cars, dancing, all while enjoying one another's company!

So what happens at New Student Welcome Night?

For those of you checking us out for the first time, welcome! Glad you're here! I'm sure you've seen the flyers, posters, and heard the word about this thing here at Acts 2 Fellowship called New Student Welcome Night (dun dun dun). You might be wondering to yourself, "What is New Student Welcome Night (dun dun dun)?"

We could tell you, but we thought it'd be better to show you!

Praying x Walking

Praying x Walking

Yesterday, we had our first campus prayer walk of the summer. It was a great time for all of us to come together and pray for the U of M campus! We split off two by two, walking the streets, halls, and dorms that will be filled once again with 50,000+ students in a matter of a couple of months. We are excited for the new school year, we are excited for the new friends that we will meet, and we are excited for what God will do in our midst this fall!

Worldview Camp @ T4C West

Worldview Camp @ T4C West

Remember that awesome conference we were at earlier this summer – ACTS? Remember those awesome seminars we furiously took notes during? After returning to Minneapolis from Berkeley, we had the chance to share what we had learned, starting with Worldview Camp 2014 at Raph and Clark’s old youth group, T4C West. We began working hard to prepare talks, games, and food for the middle school and high school students who would be there. As the day of the camp approached, work nights got longer and sleep decreased, but dry runs became more polished and games became more fun!

New Song: Mercy Tree

Hello everyone! 

As some of you guys might have noticed, we sang a new song this past Sunday at our Worship Service. It is a song called Mercy Tree written by Krissy Nordhoff and sung by Lacey Sturm. The song was inspired by the verse Romans 5:8, which reads:

"but God showed His love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us."

Below is the song as sung as part of the My Hope video series by Billy Graham, which many of us watched last year! Enjoy, and get familiar with it, because we might be singing it again in the near future :)

The Grand Finale! (dun dun dun)

The Grand Finale! (dun dun dun)

"So the last will be first, and the first last." [Matthew 20:16]

Or in the case of the red team, the last will be first for only 10 minutes before eventually finishing second :). In our finale, we saw a major shakeup in the standings as the 4 teams battled it out to the bitter end in Dodgeball, Kan Jam, Capture the Flag, and Braveheart! In the end, one team made it out the other side on top of the competition, and that was the...
