Dr. Derek Halvorson, President of Covenant College

Interview during Adult Sunday School Class Next Lord’s Day, October 24
American higher education is in crisis. Never in our history have so many people begun to wonder whether a college education is worth the money it costs or if there isn’t a better and much cheaper way to produce the same result, that is, with on-line technology and without a residential campus. The increasing cost of college education has provoked further doubt that the longstanding paradigm of a residential college education retains its superiority over other options. Dr. Derek Halvorson, the president of our Covenant College will be with us next Lord’s Day (the 24th). Pastor Rayburn will interview him in the adult Sunday School class and pose these questions among others. The education of the rising generations of Christian students should be a subject interesting and important to us all. You will enjoy hearing Dr. Halvorson and profit from his commentary on the state of American and Christian higher education as well as his defense of a Christian liberal arts college education.

Care Net Baby Bottle Campaign

Next Sunday is the end of our Baby Bottle Campaign benefiting Care Net. If you have not yet picked up a bottle to fill, you still have time, and there are plenty of unclaimed bottles in the narthex today. Care Net Centers also need and accept nonmonetary donations. Check the insert at the back of the bulletin for a list of needs.
