Welcome Back SCU Students!
Although this year’s SOAR weekend looked a little different from previous year due to social distancing, face masks and other safety procedures, the atmosphere was still permeated with the feeling of community and belonging.
Students began moving in the week of August 10 and by that Saturday campus was once more alive with activities. The weekend began with the annual Convocation, where new students are prayed over by our faculty and staff in preparation for their college career at SCU. Dr. Murray spoke about the roads we take in life and how God has destined a path for each of us to follow. Bishop and Mrs. Sherrill spoke to the parents about the impact SCU can make on their child’s life, and thanked them for allowing SCU to be a part of this important next step in their student’s life.
Over the past two weeks, SGA and Res Life have hosted a variety of events to help students become a part of the community of SCU. Events such as a BBQ cookout on the lawn, movie night on the hill, paint slip-n-slide, and kayaking on the North Canadian River through the Stinchcombe Refuge.
Classes are now well underway, and although the layout looks different this year with smaller classes, hybrid classes and a lot more space between everyone, we are convinced that “He who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.” Philippians 1:6 Although we may not know what the future will look like, we believe that God will continue using SCU to equip students for a life of learning, leadership and service to positively impact their world for Jesus Christ.
