By Chelsea Moore
MOUNT VERNON— Joshua McPhatter, a senior at Brewton-Parker, spoke during chapel on April 10. McPhatter opened his message by telling the students, “God can’t use you, if you don’t give yourself away.” He used the biblical passage of Mark 6:31-39 to explain why the congregation should be thankful. Joshua stated, “Jesus used five loaves of bread and two fish to feed a large crowd.” He continued, “God can multiply our blessings, if we are thankful.”
“1 Thessalonians 5:18 is a reminder,” he said, “to be thankful in all circumstances.”
Students Porshia Cleveland, Jennifer Reid, and Suzanna Moye provided music for the chapel service through contemporary praise songs with BPC alumni Luther Wardlaw accompanying them on the piano. Courtney Howard led the congregation in a word of prayer, and Shantel Thompson made the announcements. Coach Shelia Simmons recognized athletes who excelled in academics and were models of good character. Jake Brumbelow, Head Wrestling Coach, and Caleb Snyder, Head Cross Country Coach, were also introduced.
Chapel is open to the community and is held weekly on Tuesdays at 11:00 a.m. in Saliba Chapel.
The mission of Brewton-Parker College, a Georgia Baptist college, is to develop the whole student through the application of Biblically-centered truth to a liberal arts curriculum in a community of shared Christian values.
