Here are the groups starting next week:

Hello Fall!

Can you believe it? The summer has flown by and school is just one week away. I hope you have had a restful and fun time, and are feeling ready for the new year, 'cause here it comes! Here at UM Chi Alpha we already have lots of cool things planned for the next semester. Check out the Events page on our website for the latest info. If you are new to Chi Alpha and the U, be sure find us at Orientation and the Welcome Feast on Friday August 29. And whether you are new or "old," we invite you to check out Pursuit, our weekly worship meeting. The first of the year will be on Tuesday, August 26 at 7 pm in Room 114 of the Skaggs Building. We hope to see you soon!

summer bible study

Just an update:
the 2008 Chi Alpha Summer Bible study will be starting up next Tuesday at 7 pm at the Chi Alpha House (532 S. 6th St. East)

Here's Scott's plug for it: This is a sweet time to read and discuss the Bible, and hang out together. Bring a lawn chair, or a blanket, since we'll meet in the backyard if the weather is good.

Hope to see you there.

Hear Ye, Hear Ye!

The Spring 2008 semester's sermons are finally posted on the Chi Alpha website. They are, for the most part, in chronological order. The dates next to the titles, however, are from when they were posted, not when they were shared at Chi Alpha, something that Lance has said he may be able to fix in the future. But the thing is, even if he can't, you can listen to the entire semester again: everything from stories of Scott's Polish wedding to Paul Whitley's southern accent to the April talk to Amanda's so-called "Chi Alpha story." Yes, you too have the opportunity listen to these stories (and more!) and fall in love with them all over again! ;) Enjoy.

Closing out One Season, Looking to a New One

So the semester has finally come to an end. Most folks' grades are posted, campus is eerily quiet and we're all hoping the weather starts to feel like summer soon. In the UM Chi Alpha, the last few weeks have seen a whirlwind of activities to close out the semester: last XA meeting, a group picture, End-of-Year BBQ and Student Leader Dinner as well as a host of other gatherings where we had to say "goodbye." Now what? Well...
We have a little break in official action, while our fearless leader Scott is out of the country on a Big Sky Expeditions missions trip. But in June Rocky will be heading up the Fireworks stand and in July Sylvia will be leading the summer Bible Study on Tuesday nights. And there will be a Rafting Trip and all other kinds of good stuff. So if you are in town, or even if you aren't, stay in touch. And happy summer to you.
