“A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” –John 13:34-35
Don’t forget to RSVP for Gender Retreat by Thursday (1/26) evening. Thanks so much! You can still come if you need to leave early – just make a note of it in the rides form. Note that this means that there will be no Large Group!
Join us for a mini retreat with the women and men of the chapter: we will be at the same place but spending the whole time separately in a time of fellowship, bonding, fun, games, food, and rest 🙂
Look out for our next week’s new Large Group series, Holy Moly! Spirit, in which we explore what it means for Christianity to be a supernatural faith.
If you haven’t yet gotten plugged into one of our community groups, please join our Facebook groups and/contact a leader to get involved! Community groups are the heart of our chapter. They are a place for everyone, regardless of spiritual background, to learn more about Christianity and build fun community that loves and cares for one another and campus. This semester, we are studying scripture from the book of Revelation.

JOKE BREAK: Who was the most financially savvy woman in the Bible? Pharaoh’s daughter: she went to the bank of the Nile and drew up a little prophet! (Get it? Pro-fit!! Read Exodus 2).
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. WIth this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.” –Ephesians 6:18
Please also join us Mondays at 9 pm to pray for our South Asian friends and peers on campus as we work in sharing the gospel widely and being more pan-Asian!
There are still a few quarter-zips (S, M, L) available! Get one before we run out: please pay $18 or venmo AIVat-UMich, and contact Grace Wan to pick one up.
Our relationship with God is and should be measured by so much more than our mere attendance at large groups, community groups, and church – God wants us to to know Him personally: “So that they should seek the Lord, in the hope that they might grope for Him and find Him, though He is not far from each one of us.” (Acts 17:27)
If you don’t already read the Bible regularly, check out the Bible Project’s 2017 reading plan that several people in the chapter are following. You can also browse through the wealth of topical plans from the Bible app.
Or, if you have questions about faith, explore them- here is a list of all the different faith-related books people in AIV have. Feel free to ask to borrow a book or invite a few friends to read with you!
Enjoy Mickey Hua’s Draw My Life from Praise & Testimony Night last semester. Testimonies are so important in encouraging others’ walks with Christ as well as showing God at work. If you ever want to write or share your own story for AIV to share with our student members and alumni, just let anyone on Vision Team know!
AIV is a para-church ministry, which essentially means that we are not a church- our students attend various churches on campus. We coordinate rides to Knox Presbyterian Church and Grace Ann Arbor; here is also a list of other churches in the Ann Arbor area.
