  AGTS Day of Renewal

  AGTS sets aside one day in       the Fall Semester to fast the     usual business of the day--       classes and office work--so       the Community can focus on     the Lord and allow Him to         speak into their lives. 

  Offices and classes will be         closed so students, faculty,       and staff can attend at least two of the three services.
  Featured Speaker: John Bates
  Date: September 20
  Service Times: 9:30 a.m., 1:30 p.m., and 6:00 p.m.
  • Childcare provided during the 6:00 p.m. service
