Upcoming Events

  • Story of God at Work // On March 13, we had our first CHAOS Prayer Night where each student had the opportunity to be prayed for by their small group leader! God's presence was ALIVE. // Ally Henson (college-age, small group leader) taught us about how on the night before Jesus died .. Jesus knew that praying was not a "last resort" but instead His "FIRST priority." // Musical worship, stations, hugs, 9 square, scrunchies, and PINTS of ice cream also made for an incredible night!! Click here for pictures of our night together! #highfun #hightruth
    • An 8th grade guy messaged CHAOS on Instagram this after Prayer Night: "Tonight was amazing!!! I feel so much better after walking out of naz just feeling great! It was awesome to have 1 on 1 time with my amazing leader and I can talk about things To him that I couldn’t really talk about in regular group. I highly recommend doing this more often!

#NeverThirst Campaign

    • For lots of people, life without clean water is just life. For many of us, it’s hard to imagine that kind of life. It’s hard to understand the importance of clean water, and what clean water can do for an individual and a community. From better health, education, to saving time and energy, clean water makes a difference for the empowerment of men and especially women in communities and villages all around the world.
    • All three student ministries (CHAOS, BIGhouse, and BASIC) are partnering together to raise $10K for a fresh water well in Bohoc, Haiti at United Christians International UCI is a long standing partner of ours and one of the places where we send our spring break teams.
    • CHAOS: We are challenging CHAOS as a whole to raise $3,000. If we meet our goal, we will have an insanely, fun CHAOS Hype Party.
    • Students are able to bring cash to CHAOS or BIGhouse and/or donate online at http://basicatlang.org/never-thirst

Our goal is for 100+ young women (junior high through college age) to attend this event. Have a fun evening out with your daughter or niece or with a group of friends and their daughters!

More about the tour:

We’ve been given freedom in Jesus, now let’s learn what it means to live like it. Bring friends or come alone, you’re welcome just as you are!

No matter where you’re coming from in your journey with God, we all ask ourselves “can my life really change?” Maybe you’ve been walking with Jesus your entire life, but you’re carrying around this sense of heaviness you can’t shake or you’re still wondering if following Jesus is worth it, these nights are for us all to see what Jesus died for, the freedom we’ve been given in Him, and to really live like it. Let’s have fun, dig into our Bibles, and worship God together like never before.
