The weather was perfect for skiing and snowboarding last week, so a great group of students took off Friday, February 25th after lunch and spent the rest of the day at Caberfae Peaks Ski Resort. That particular day was ‘College Day’ at Caberfae so college students paid a mere $18 for an all day ski lift and rental! For those students that went to Caberfae, it was a fantastic start to the weekend.
Saturday, February 12th, was a busy day for women at GBC! We started the day off with a fellowship time for those involved in the Heart2Heart Mentoring program. It was a great morning of fun and laughter as the students were able to meet with their mentors and get to know them.
The evening came and it was Chocolate Party time! Milk chocolate, dark chocolate, white chocolate…and the movie Chocolat! We could not have asked for a better day.
Men on campus enjoyed a relaxing night on Friday…a movie and popcorn. Dr. Loverin joined them for the night as he selected the movie option: The Good, The Bad & The Ugly. The classic western was a hit among the men! Movie night is sure to come again soon.
Last weekend provided a wonderful opportunity for Aletheia Hall to head downtown GR for ice skating at Rosa Parks Circle. The group had a group time (with not TOO many falls!). They followed the time outdoors with mugs of hot chocolate. A perfect winter outing!
A group of GBC students left campus after classes Friday afternoon to enjoy College Day at Caberfae Peaks Ski Resort. Prices are reduced, the weather is wonderful (snowy!) and these students took advantage of the opportunity! Another ski event is planned for February.
Grace Bible College students took 2nd place in the third annual Christmas (they call it Santa) Parade sponsored by the Wyoming-Kentwood Chamber of Commerce. We handed out candy-canes with gospel tracts attached. Well done students!
Aletheia Hall recently enjoyed a favorite event…the Progressive Brunch. Ladies dressed up and enjoyed fruit, coffee and tea at the Loverin’s as well as a game of ‘Psychiatrist.’ Next the group traveled to Sherstad’s where they enjoyed a variety of egg dishes and a game of ‘Picture Telephone.’ Finally the ladies traveled to Spooner’s where french toast bake and cinnamon rolls waited…as well as a game of ‘What If?’ The morning was fantastic, fun and an event that will certainly happen again next semester!
Only one day a year, please
The 80′s have come back to Grace with enthusiasm. Students had to dig deep into their (parents’) closets to find these. Some staff got into the act too. Nicely done!
Friday, November 5th, concluded the Life Series of Sexual Abuse. Emily Renberg hosted a Women At Risk event Friday night and many students were able to take advantage of not only the opportunity to become educated on a growing crime in the United States (human trafficking) but also color a page in coloring books that will be sent to orphans overseas. All who attended were presented with sobering facts on the reality of this tragedy but had the opportunity to pray and lift the entire thing to the Lord, knowing He is good and that His hand is at work in even a tragedy such as this. The night ended with a viewing of the movie ‘Taken’ as it deals with human trafficking and a dad’s struggle to free his daughter.
