I (Greg) knew that we had a lot of students this trimester, but I wasn’t prepared for the sea of faces when I stepped behind the pulpit in chapel today. There were easily more than 1,000 students crammed into the gymnasium of the Helstrom building. As usual, our worship band set a sweet tone for the service, leading us in praise to God.
My sermon text was Colossians 3:12-17, challenging students to leave behind the old, tired song of life without Christ and to embrace the new song Jesus wants to give us, a better song characterized by God’s peace, forgiveness, and a thankful heart.

- Keep praying for Amy, as she plows ahead in her online Ed.D. program through Trevecca Nazarene University. She’s doing very well.
- In the School Religion and Christian Ministry, the PhD/DMin students begin their new session of classes on Monday, October 1, via our online (E-Naz) platform. Ask the Lord to be with us as we interact online, then later in February, face-to-face. There are several who are still gathering school fees, and we pray the Lord’s provision for them so they can begin on-time.
