Retreat at University Camp, February 9-11
Relax, help make Valentine's Day cards (more on that below), and just enjoy the company of friends. Space is very limited. Cost: $20, though scholarships are always available. Register through ucmtxstate.org. Look under the "Ministries" tab and click on "Retreats."
Valentine's Day Card Sales
We work with our friends at the UCM to make Valentine's Day cards for sale on the Quad. Last year we raised over $1500 for the Hays County Food Bank. We'll make them on the retreat, but look for a crafts box to be set up in the Coffee House extension with all the necessary materials and directions.
Pr. Jaime will be on the Quad on Ash Wednesday from 9:00 to 2:00 dispensing ashes and providing service times for both Christ Chapel and other ministries on or near campus.
Servants of the Cross Starts February 16th, 1:00 p.m.
Christ Chapel's ministry is open to all students, staff, and faculty of Texas State, and to other adults who are interested in supporting the ministry's goals. Participants are not required to attend a certain number of times in order to be considered part of the ministry; the welcome we extend is unconditional.
However, some students may choose to explore their faith lives more intentionally through the ministry of Christ Chapel. Toward that end, students are invited to enroll in Servants of the Cross, and order of students in ministry. This semester's course of study will be the foundations of faith, using "Windows of Faith," a small-group resource developed for college students.
There is no charge to take part in Servants of the Cross, but you must register and converse with Pastor Jaime in advance. Those completing the three semesters of Servants of the Cross will be those from whom Peer Ministers will be drawn each year.
