HCU News for July 30, 2012
We continue to hear compliments about the 2012 T.I.T.U.S. Camp —and we love it.
Congratulations to Brad McKinnon who has completed all requirements for his MA in History from the University of North Alabama. He successfully defended his thesis last week. Graduation awaits in August.
Congratulations to Willie Alvarenga who has been notified that he will receive a Levi Kennedy Memorial Scholarship. We so appreciate organizations that help our students.
Congratulations to the South Haleyville Church of Christ for another successful Back to School Parenting Seminar. Alumnus Michael Farris serves as minister for South Haleyville. Alumnus Kyle Mashburn was one of the guest teachers again this year. This outreach event is exceedingly well planned and well executed. Heritage Home School Director Cindy Reams is a leading force in its organization and success.
Thanks much to Dr. Coy Roper for sending OML a copy of his new commentary on Numbers in the Truth for Today Series. Coy and Sharlotte Roper consistently find ways to keep blessing our work for God. Outstanding!
Fall semester will begin on Monday August 13. Encourage prospective students. Invite brethren to audit a course. Dr. Ed Gallagher has created two Adult Education (non-credit) courses for this fall. Using Greek and Hebrew in Bible Study will meet on Tuesday evenings at 7:00 from September 4 through November 20 (excluding October 23 and 30). Cost is $100 if registering before August 31, $125 thereafter. Jesus as the Messiah will meet 8:00 to noon on Saturday November 3. Cost is $40 before October 31, $60 thereafter. These will be excellent courses.
The Heritage Associates will host a TASTING TEA on Saturday September 15 at the home of Kathy Lawson. Tickets are $15. Proceeds benefit Heritage Christian University. See any Heritage Associate for tickets. The Associates continue to be a powerful force in the mission of HCU.
Larry Davenport has announced that SHINE will be on the campus of HCU September 16-18. This outstanding event for teens provides major encouragement.
Keep in your daily prayers: David Arny, Bob Bauman, David Blackwell, Eden Burleson, Austin and Betty Davenport, Jerry Davidson, Julie Frederick (daughter of John and Kathy Lawson), Sara Goldman, Randy Imel, Melanie Irions, Faye Johnson (Corandle’s wife), Lori Kashorek, Clara Credit-Kemp, Martha Polk, Ralph Richardson, Avery Shappley (daughter of board member Robert Shappley), Gail Stevenson, and Shirley Trousdale (grandmother of Ashley Hudson).
Thought for the week: Psalm 8 begins with exuberant praise for God. Then, David gives reasons for that homage. God can empower anyone, even an infant. God made all that is. God gave humanity special standing, unique opportunity, and tremendous responsibility within His creation. Everything good flows from God. All that is right about us we owe to Him. Praise for God pulls us upward. We’re blessed to be able to honor Him.
