BCM's B.A.S.I.C.- 9 pm at First Baptist Church Fellowship Hall (CLW)
Jail-a-Thon- "Arrest" your favorite faculty, staff, and friends for a great cause! All proceeds collected will help defray the cost of Spring S.P.O.T.S. Mission Experiences!
MSAC Grand Hall- Thursday, 11 am- 4 pm / Friday, 10:30 am- 4 pm
How does Jail-a-Thon work? An individual will donate an amount toward missions to "arrest" another campus colleague. A warrant will be placed for this individual and when "arrested" he/she will need to raise double this amount to be released from the "MSAC Jail." i.e.: Someone donates $10 to put out a warrant for someone else's arrest. When arrested they will need to raise $20 to be released. The individual can call friends or families, have individuals donate online, or beg within the MSAC Jail to reach the set bail price.
Appalachian Outreach- Coats for the Cold- AO offers an annual ministry called, "Coats for the Cold." This Saturday, hundreds of articles of warm weather clothing will be distributed to those in need. Coats for the Cold will be held at Jefferson Elementary School from 9 am-1 pm. CLW Credit will be given for those who work the event. (7:45 am- 2 pm)
Can't serve Saturday? Volunteers can help prep for this event all day on Thursday at the AO Ministry Center (located on Old AJ Hwy across from the Intramural field) or Friday evening from 6-10 at Jefferson Elementary School.
