Today marks the beginning of “dead week,” which means we have reached that critical point in the semester when faculty and students are intensely focused on finishing well. I pray that each of you will have the time, energy, and determination to press on through these final challenging days of the 2017 fall semester toward a strong finish.
We are pleased to welcome as our chapel speaker today Dr. Jerry Rankin, former president of the International Mission Board. On Friday we will enjoy our annual Christmas concert featuring members of the BMC Chorale.
Congratulations are in order for the charter members of Alpha Lambda Delta, the freshman honorary society. These students will be initiated tomorrow afternoon at 3:30 at Armstrong: William Douglas Bain, Edward Britt Bender, Luke Steven Bennett, Taylor O-Lynn Collins, Jacob Mitchell Derrick, Jacob Ryan Heffner, Noah Walton Hill, Hailey Elizabeth Horne, Kyler Andrew Mahar, Dustin Elliott Matlock, Abigail Taylor Mattox, Harrison Christopher Moss, Taylor Dee Smith, Richard Dalton Tudor, Faith Ann Walgenbach, Mallory Marie Wooldridge.
Two very special Christmas events are on the calendar for this week. Tonight at 7:00 the SBA will host its annual Christmas party, including a reading of “Twas the Night before Christmas.” Don your favorite Christmas sweater and join us for this annual tradition in the SUB. On Friday evening “Lessons and Carols” will be held in the auditorium at 7:00. For many, this special service signals the beginning of the beautiful Christmas season. This year’s program will include our Chorale as well as Blue Sound (the BMC band), and Impact (our drama team). I encourage you to make this a part of your holiday traditions.
Topper basketball fans have plenty of options this week. Our JV women are in action at home Tuesday night. The varsity men and women play Thursday and Saturday at home. Come out and cheer the Toppers on to victory!
Finally, tomorrow is “Topper Tuesday,” our name for our annual giving day. Follow the happenings all day on social media—and be sure to like and share so that more folks can learn about BMC. This year’s “theme” focuses on our “God-sized dream” for Blue Mountain College.
Blessings to all for a productive “dead week”!
