EIU Chi Alpha

Chi Alphas are on university campuses all over the world. We're a student movement for Jesus. You belong here.


International student party!


This Friday! Bring a friend.


Hey gang. The Illinois Chi Alpha Fall Retreat is coming, Oct 4-6. Look forward to seeing you there! For more info and to register, visit www.idcag.org/xa19


Hey gang. Tomorrow night we'll be having some community time starting at 7pm while we eat (Jenn's bringing a pasta bake, woohoo) and doing a little trivia. Not everyone has to participate, but maybe we can even break up into pairs and have prizes for the top winners. It may be a little bible trivia, sports, culture and whatever else I can dream up today, ha. Be scared. Be very scared. Invite your friends - it'll be a blast.

Afterwards, we'll jump back into 1 Peter 2. What a good start last week in chapter 1. It was great to have a full house with some excellent discussion as we looked at the eternal perspective of suffering and the glory to follow. See you there!


We're back and ready to roll! - https://mailchi.mp/5be5b36f6d3c/fzonwopce4-1951913
