Every single person has their own unique way of enjoying and participating in the world’s vast array of cultural activities. While some individuals may prefer to watch an adaptation of a novel that has been made into a movie rather than read the source material, in contrast there are some people who would rather only read the novel and pretend that the movie was never created. Films are meant to be celebrated on a grand scale because they play such a prominent role in shaping our society’s culture, are able to deliver deep meanings in the way that high respected novels can, and are able to be used for a few hours of escapism. If you’re willing to see film as more than just “entertainment”, we’d love to have you join us. We will view a film at theater once every two weeks and discuss its takeaways. Contact Seamus Gude at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.

The mission of The Gamer’s Society (or TGS) is to help those with an interest in gaming connect, socialize, and learn how to use gaming to spread good will to others. Gaming, as we are defining it, covers both video games and more traditional, non-electronic games. One aspect of the spreading of good will is the application of gaming to Christian Ministry. For more information contact Christopher Reynolds at email@example.com

College is a pivotal part of the transition from adolescence to adulthood in the lives of many Americans. Many people make important life choices during these years, and peer interactions have the biggest impact on many people’s decisions. The mission of the Pre-Seminary club is helping each other grow spiritually and make positive life decisions. We will also simply enjoy Christian fellowship and food.As the name would suggest, our club will mostly be guys who are Pre-Seminary, but girls who are Pre-Seminary (Deaconess Program) are also encouraged to join. In addition, despite our name, we welcome anyone who wants to participate. Proverbs 27:17 “As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another.” As followers of Christ, we realize that our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the spiritual forces of evil. As Christians, and especially as young men called to be ordained ministers, we face incredible spiritual assault. The last thing Satan wants is Pastors who allow God to direct them and serve others through Christ’s love. And that is what we aspire to be: followers of Christ who submit to His will for our lives. Not our will, but His will. Contact Michael Hinz at email@example.com for more information!

The mission of theatre club is to inspire students to participate in CTX theatre productions, local community theatre, and projects to bring story theatre to local schools-especially Lutheran. In addition, we promote the growing theatre program at Concordia Texas, and encourage participation in classes for people of all majors to satisfy the need for something different. In the spirit of these missions, we enjoy attending theatre productions both on and off campus, volunteering for CTX theatre productions, and in the, hopefully near, future we would like to put together story theatre productions for local schools. Anyone who is interested in theatre in any way- on stage, back stage, or even sitting in the audience- is welcome; we would love to have you! This is meant to be a laid-back group of people that like to have fun, but would also like to get things done. Dr. Kelly Gordon, professor of theatre at Concordia Texas, is our advisor. If you are interested in joining the theatre club, you can contact Dr. Gordon (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Susan Pacey (email@example.com).

Torndeedles and Hooks
Our goal with “Torneedles and Hooks” is to bring knitters, seamstresses, tailors, quilters, and crocheters alike together to celebrate their common love for CTX and their individual craft. We wish to create a growing community where those who already have a craft they enjoy and those who wish to learn something new can enjoy themselves and share their lives with others. Our goal is to recreate this idea for men and women both on our wonderful campus. The excitement held concerning someone’s individual craft is contagious.Through our projects, our hope is to be a blessing to those we serve, to spread joy through our work, and to gain insight into each other’s lives and we share in our love for handmade crafts.

Twister Dance Club
“A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance” – Ecclesiastes 3:4
The mission of our dance club is to not only to advance in technique and skill, but to create a bond and form a family sharing a passion for dance. Not only is dancing enjoyable, but it is a huge stress reliever. Students can take a break and get their mind off stressful school and homework for an hour. We welcome any level of dancers- beginner and advanced. Even if you have never had any experience on the dance floor, we invite anyone at CTX to join! We will rotate through many different styles of dance- hip-hop, contemporary, hula, even ballroom! Our leaders are open to suggestions. From our understanding, there has been no dance team at Concordia, so let’s start this tradition together! All dancers should attend in comfortable clothing and tennis shoes. Contact one of our leaders or our sponsor by phone or email, or our Twitter account. Please come join us while we begin brand new chapter in Concordia University Texas!
