I Can't Imagine Going to School Anywhere Else

I remember when my parents sat my sister and me down and told us that we’d be going to a new school the next year. I didn't understand because I loved my school, my friends, my carpool, and my teachers, and I really didn't like change. My parents told us that the Lord had clearly told them to make this move, and even though it didn't make sense to us, many of their friends, and some family members, they were going to be obedient.

The Song of Your Life

In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth. Music was present from the beginning. You might be wondering how. Well, let me tell you. Each star in the heavens puts off its own unique pulsar that includes sound waves. The very heavens have been declaring the glory of the Lord our God from the beginning, and people can glorify Him too. God’s Word tells us that He inhabits the praise of His people. One way we can communicate with God is through songs, hymns, and psalms.

Here or There, God is Working

On September 26, over 140 alumni and their families returned to Ben Lippen’s Hathaway-Weeber Stadium to reconnect with friends and faculty from years past. Dennis Cochrane, member of the class of 1954, opened the gametime ceremony with a word of prayer and joined classmate Merle Dye in celebrating their 60-year reunion. Sixty years is certainly something to celebrate!

The most notable turnout was from the class of 1994, with 50 alumni and family members making their 20-year reunion a weekend-long event, and even Skyping with a fellow classmate who was unable to attend. From the perfect football weather to a festive alumni tailgate and creative halftime floats, the evening ended with a nail-biting Falcon comeback leading to a one-point victory over Porter-Gaud! It was certainly an evening to remember. Click here to see photos from Homecoming 2014.
