What an incredible day of worship we experienced last Sunday! It was a great beginning to another academic year. College Church was blessed with many first time guests and 1927 in attendance. Many of the new faces we saw will become familiar faces the next four years. I hope we started a new tradition to bring all of the incoming Harding freshmen and their families up to the stage for a Prayer of Blessing. I am grateful to every member who went the extra-mile to make one or more of our students feel welcome.

This is the Sunday when, as Bruce McLarty states, “The world comes to Searcy!” Parents and students from all 50 states, 49 different countries, and a spattering of Caribbean islands will step foot on the campus of Harding University this week. For many this week is déjà vu as you are bringing your second or third child to enroll in your old alma mater. For some this is a brand new experience being on campus for the first time enrolling your freshman. Some parents have been praying expectantly about this day and others have been prayerfully dreading it.

We are never more like Jesus than when we serve others. Didn’t you love seeing hundreds of kids and parents eagerly wanting to get into the building to experience the School Supply Drive? One thing was obvious to me – the School Supply Drive was a huge GROUP EFFORT! Adults and young people from the College and Downtown Churches pitched in for this good work.

On Sunday, July 13, 31 teens and 8 chaperones entered the Impact Church of Christ for what we thought was worship. But what we witnessed was the word of God changing people’s lives. More than 550 gathered this particular Sunday and I literally had a front row seat to watch God work through “ordinary men.” One gentlemen sat with his daughter and it came time for the communion comments. This man stood, walked up the stairs, and began to tell a brief piece of how the Impact Church of Christ introduced him to Jesus Christ more than 10 years ago. He opened the word of God and began to read. As he read, I saw God’s light burning in this man’s heart as he mispronounced words and incidentally omitted words. The man read at about 3rd or 4th grade level.

For the College Church, two evenings each week have become two wonderful occasions of expressing our love for others! On Monday evening, perhaps 150 to 200 people gather in the Family Room for a friendship meal. Three-fourths of those present are visitors from the community who have come for a pleasant meal and a word of encouragement from us. Later in the week, on Thursday evening, about 30 to 35 gather in Room 100 in a home-type setting for a meal and Bible studies that have grown out of the Monday night’s relationships.

The largest single item in our Great Commission Sunday budget is for short-term missions. The elders recognize that even a brief time involved in direct evangelism or in support of evangelism, such as medical, humanitarian or developmental programs, can impact us as well as those to whom we minister. Here is a thumbnail sketch of the activities of College Church members this year.

Those wonderful senior servants! With obvious gratitude, our hearts overflow regarding these exemplary Christians. You’ll see them everywhere in the Lord’s vineyard, cutting the ripened grapes and bringing in the harvest of the Lord’s word. Check in on almost any work that the College Church engages in, and you will find them heavily represented in it. Without them Caring and Sharing would have a hard time succeeding. Without them His House would be greatly understaffed. From this group of multi-talented Christians come preachers, teachers, benevolent servants, and disaster clean-up crews, not to mention a dozen other services and works.

On December 7, 1941, Japanese warplanes bombed Pearl Harbour and the city-state of Singapore. At this time Singapore was Crown Colony of Great Britain and an important port in Southeast Asia. It was believed to be an impregnable fortress island by mother England.
