A&D Bible Study

Due to the long Easter weekend and folks travelling, Art & Design Bible Study won’t meet this Sunday. We’ll pick up the following Sunday. I hope you travel safely and have a restful weekend!

Easter Blessing from Dan

And as we move through Holy Week toward Easter Sunday, I hope you will find comfort in the love of Christ for you personally. For those of us who are so used to hearing it, the news can sound like a cliche, but it’s actually true: He is a real person, who truly loves you, who actually did suffer and die on your behalf. He has defeated death, and though we often still walk through times of darkness (many of us may feel we’re there right now), He knows what it is to suffer, and will someday make all things right.

Freshman and Concentration Reviews

The first email for freshman reviews has gone out – please let us know if you did not receive it. Keep watching your email for additional information. Reviews will be held the last week of April.
