Barclay College is teaming up with the American Red Cross on Wednesday, September 27, 2017 to sponsor a life-saving blood drive from 10:00 AM – 3:00 PM in Hockett Auditorium. Due to Hurricanes Harvey and Irma, many blood drives were canceled so the need is greater than before.

Walk-in donors are welcome,  but it would be best if you scheduled an appointment. You can sign-up online at www.redcrossblood.org, or simply respond to this email with what time you would like to donate. Scheduling an appointment will help to expedite your donation process.  You can schedule your appointment for a 15 minute block between 10am and 3pm.

Hello friends, we have sold 187 seats for the Ross-Ellis Center that is on track to be completed by the 2018 Spring semester. There are 393 chairs still available if you would like to buy a chair and have it engraved.

Everyone is invited to the eighth annual Campus of Light celebration on November 28 at 7:00 pm in Barclay Park near Phillips Hall. During the campus lighting event, music will be performed by the Haviland community. In interlude, a firework flare will shimmer above each building symbolizing the light of Christ.

But even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing, whose minds the god of this age has blinded, who do not believe, lest the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine on them. For we do not preach ourselves, but Christ Jesus the Lord, and ourselves your bondservants for Jesus’ sake. For it is the God who commanded light to shine out of darkness, who has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Jesus Christ.

— 2 Corinthians 4:3-6

“Recently, Barclay College received a blessing in the form of reaching the goal to meet the Mabee Challenge Grant to construct the Ross-Ellis Center for Arts and Ministry. This milestone will create a facility that will change the college, the community, and the surrounding area. It will be a synergy center for ministry both internally and externally as Barclay College strives to fulfill its mission and calling. To that end I am inviting everyone to An Evening of Thanksgiving and Worship to collectively celebrate God’s goodness to Barclay College for those who would like to attend. We pray this evening will be an appropriate prelude to our holiday season and a remarkable 2017.” — President Royce Frazier
