Hi friends! I hope you’re having a relaxing and restful winter break. SO restful and relaxing, in fact, that you have time to fill out a survey for AAIV!

This survey will help us shape next semester, so please fill out as much or as little of the survey as you’re able to, regardless of how involved in AAIV you were this past semester!!

Please try to fill this out before Jan 17! Note that the survey is anonymous!


Thanksgiving Potluck


Join us this Saturday, November 21, 6:30PM at Upper House (East Campus Mall) for our Thanksgiving Potluck! We’ll be celebrating and reflecting on the semester thus far and how much God has provided for us. It will be a fun and exciting night with tons of food, awesome open-mic performances, and celebrating together as AAIV! Invite your friends to join us in our celebration!

If you are part of a small group, please pay $5 to your small group leader to help cover the cost of food! If you are a guest, you are able to pay at the door!
