School News 12/17/20
Love caused Your incarnation; Love brought You down to me. Your thirst for my salvation procured my liberty. Oh, love beyond all telling, that led You to embrace in love, all love excelling, our lost and fallen race.
Rejoice, then, you sad-hearted, who sit in deepest gloom, who mourn o’er joys departed and tremble at your doom. Despair not; He is near you He’s standing at the door Who best can help and cheer you and bids you weep no more. – WS 704 vs. 4-5

The Annual Christmas Party begins at 5:30 pm. There will be games, an ugly sweater contest, food & drinks, the traditional special candle light service, a White Elephant gift exchange, and a movie. We look forward to seeing you all there! Here’s the fine print for dorm students: Chapel will be the candle light service at 7:30 pm, attendance is required as usual. Those who do not attend the rest of the party have an off campus free night and must be in the dorm by 9:50 pm. Those attending the party can stay until the end of the movie if it runs long but no later than 10:30.
Band Concert tomorrow at 6:00 (by invitation only), followed by the Choir Concert at 7:00.

If that row is filled up please use the lower lot east row (by the road coming down the hill).
Christmas Choir Concert: This year we are doing something unique – the Christmas concert will be held OUTSIDE!!! The forecast gives us the expectation that God’s going to keep this unseasonable warmth going and provide the opportunity to sing without masks! Also, no need to wear the traditional black and white – bundle up in your best warm weather gear, be as stylish or as non-descript as you desire, and prepare to create a really unique and special experience for your guests. The concert begins at 7:00 pm Friday. Guests: bundle up and bring blankets if you so desire. If convenient, bring your own seating but chairs can be provided for those who need them. Please maintain 6 feet between household groups and either RSVP using this Google form for contact tracing purposes, or sign in at the Commons entrance when you arrive.
Dorm Info: The last meal served before the Christmas recess is breakfast in the dorms on Saturday morning for those who signed up. The dorms close at noon on Saturday, 12/17/20. The dorms open again at noon on Sunday, 1/10/21, and the first meal served is supper that evening. High school dorm students must sign in by 9:50 pm Sunday evening (no chapel or study hall).
