An “academic meeting at which specialists deliver addresses on a topic or on related topics and then answer questions relating to them”; from the Latin, colloqui, “to converse.” (Merriam-Webster 2016)


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

Saturday October 1st at 9:00am, the 85th Barclay College Auxiliary sale and auction will be held at Hockett Auditorium on the Barclay College campus. This is an excellent opportunity to reconnect with former classmates and friends. Come bid against one another in the spirit of friendship to bring needed funds to help Barclay College continue its mission of training students for life, service, and leadership.

You can expect quilts, antiques, handmade crafts, pantry fillers, and much more! You may find some great deals, but you can also expect to see a German chocolate cake sell for a couple thousand dollars. That was one of last year’s highlight sales. There was also a 1961 Chevrolet Apache Pickup, which brought in some buyers who would not normally attend. It’s hard to say what special items there may be this year, so you are welcome to come a few days in advance to have a look for yourself.

The Ladies Auxiliary thanks all attenders, and an extra thank you to those who contribute or purchase items. All proceeds directly benefit Barclay College. If you would like to help with concessions or in other ways, contact Larry Lewis or call 620-862-5252.
