Fifty-five students have participated in this week’s J-Term classes. That is the highest J-Term enrollment in many years. While many of the students came back to campus to attend these classes, some viewed the sessions online. J-Term is beneficial for students looking to lighten their course load in the future by taking one class this week before all the others start. The flexibility of online participation is an added bonus! The courses offered this week were Bible Study Methods/Hermeneutics, Counseling Cross-Culturally, American Military History, Music Technology, Introduction to Philosophy, Ethics, and Conflict Resolution.
Dr. Gromacki taught Bible Study Methods/Hermeneutics.
Ken Tibberts taught Counseling Cross-Culturally.
Dr. Bitner taught American Military History.
Dr. Cone taught Ethics.
Dr. Hessel taught Conflict Resolution.
Joel Williamson taught Introduction to Philosophy.
Last Friday evening the Calvary Masterworks Chorus performed Elijah by Felix Mendelssohn. A large crowd of family and friends filled Blue River Bible Church to enjoy the fruit of many weeks of practice by the vocalists and instrumentalists. The chorus was comprised of Calvary students, faculty, staff, alumni, and singers from the local, Christian community. The oratorio featured 47 movements following Elijah’s story in I Kings and incorporating other scriptures as well. We were pleased to have Joshua Lawlor, David Adams, Un Chong Christopher, and Jacqueline Venable Simmons as soloists for the performance. Jeremy Schell, our Chorale Director, was the director and conductor of the chorus and orchestra.
