As many of you have already experienced, the Mailroom began (9-14-15) a new ID policy. Don’t worry it’s not to make your life miserable, really. It’s actually designed to make your mailroom experience easier (yours and my student workers) and to ensure we are doing our job and instilling good habits on your end….you should be carrying your ID with you while on campus at all times. I appreciate and thank all of you who are cooperating and understanding of our new policy. Please remember we won’t release any mail/packages unless you have your ID with you, even if we know you.
On another note, the winner of our first Mailroom contest was Heather Halfman.
The contest was to guess how many packages for students were delivered the first week of school without going over. There were a total of 1822! Heather came the closest without going over, 1729. Congratulations Heather!

Do you have a love/hate relationship with commas, semi-colons and apostrophes? Do your professors often note errors on your assignments? Do you know why “me” is NOT a bad word?

BIBLE LANDS STUDY TOUR
Have you heard about our May 2016 Bible Lands Study Tour? Dr. Tim Anderson and Dr. Greg Trull are so excited to return to the Holy Land. We would love for you to join us! You can learn more at our ISRAEL TOUR INFORMATION MEETING in the EMITTE CENTER at 5:00 PM TUESDAY SEPTEMBER 22. Don’t Miss it!
Let us tell you a little about where we are going. We’ll travel to southern Israel where we will experience places like the Dead Sea, Masada, and Qumran. In that area we will have camel ride into the desert like Abraham for an overnight with Bedouins. We will then move to northern Israel and Galilee. Highlights will include Capernaum, Caesarea on the Sea and ancient Dan. We will also share worship together as part of a boat ride on the Sea of Galilee. Our tour will climax in Jerusalem, the heart of the Holy Land. History will surround us as we walk in the steps of David, Nehemiah and Christ. Our last day, we will retrace the final ministry, sacrifice and resurrection of Christ. We’ll move from His healing of the lame at the Pool of Bethesda, to the prayer in Gethsemane and on to Calvary and the Open Tomb. Unforgettable. These are just a few of the amazing places we will enjoy together. If you want to see more of the sites on the tour and extension, check out our info meeting or come see us personally.
