Knight Life weekend at Warner Pacific College this year featured the WPC drama production of "Marvin's Room." ACOG graduates Alex Bates and Lindsay Adams (pictured, sitting) were involved in the play, with Alex on the set-up crew and Lindsay giving a terrific "you'll love to hate her" final performance as a selfish, vindictive mother. Garth and Kathy took a few students to Knight Life on Friday night and were treated to a free dinner and admission tickets. Thanks, Warner Pacific!
Aloha High School's own irreverent production of "The Complete Works of William Shakespeare Abridged" had the audience rolling in the aisles in laughter. Students Kevin Gade, Alissa Degman, Kenny Degman, and John Nightingale stood out in a talented cast that brought out a decidedly memorable interpretation of the Bard's classic works.
Our Bible studies have been focusing on the community of the kingdom of God. Each of our sessions have dealt with a different aspect of God's kingdom as it historically developed through Christ's example and teachings. The "upside down" nature of God's kingdom is what sets the church apart from any earthly kingdom. Any greatness that we have as Christians depends on our submission to Christ's authority and our service to others.
Have a merry Christmas!
