Come join us as we explore the Bible each Sunday at 3 pm at 405 W. 22nd St!

We’ll be learning what the Bible has to say about life, about God, and about us and how it is still relevant to us today. We’ll be studying Genesis, the first book of the Bible, this Fall. Whether you’re new to Christianity or have gone to church before, all are welcome!

RECAP: Houston Day Trip!

Who wants to stay in Austin all the time? I sure don’t! So, 4Corners took a day trip to Houston before classes got busier, and it was a packed day! After driving for a couple hours, we arrived hungry and ready to take on a buffet at K-Pop (not the music genre, the restaurant).

After stuffing ourselves, we drove over to the only remaining US battleship to have served in both World War I and World War II. It was crazy to think that we were walking on the decks where real sailors lived and fought on sea! After spending some time there, we headed over to the nearby San Jacinto Monument, which honors the men who died during the Texas Revolution.

With some time to spare before dinner, we stopped by the Kemah Boardwalk, a coastal theme park, and rode on rides like the Iron Eagle and Boardwalk Bullet – that one was really intense!

After eating some real good Asian food in Houston’s Chinatown, we headed on home towards Austin. Even though we were exhausted and arrived at 1:30, it was a great day!

RECAP: 4Corners Welcome Night!

4Corners kicked off another semester with our much anticipated Welcome Night, starting off with a mouthwatering Korean BBQ dinner!

We learned about a passage from the Bible called the parable (story) of the rich fool. While rich and planning for the future, he neglected four truths – the realities of God, his soul, value and death. We were challenged in light of God’s love for us to come and see whether or not the claims of Jesus and Christianity are true, because eternity is at stake and we want to live life aiming at the right target!

With that said, we ended the night with a variety of team games involving plenty of laughter and fun!
