A variety of things were mentioned in praising the Lord: salvation, answered prayer, family, local church, and many other things as well. Click here to listen to the testimonies.

Thanksgiving Turkey Bowl—Thursday, November 22 at 10 a.m.

What do preacher boys do when they have Thanksgiving Day off from classes? The answer is easy. They play a rough game of flag football. Each Thanksgiving, the dormitory men challenge the married men to a game of flag football. For four of the last five years, the dormitory men have defeated the married men. However, the married men prevailed this year by beating the young men 52-14. Many students and family members gathered around the activity field to watch the competition. The Turkey Bowl manifests the family atmosphere that prevails at ABC.

Thanksgiving Concert—Thursday, November 22 at 7 p.m.

It is often said that preaching is king and music is queen at ABC. On Thursday evening, our college family and visitors were blessed with a music concert by the ABC tenor trio, consisting of Dr. Don Scovill, Dwight Smith, and Alton Beal. The trio provided approximately fifty minutes of music, including the following numbers: “I Walked Today Where Jesus Walked,” “Amazed,” “He Made The Blind To See,” and “Down From His Glory.” At the conclusion of the concert, Evangelist Dwight Smith delivered an evangelistic message.

Messiah Concerts—Friday, November 23 and Saturday, November 24 at 7 p.m.

The ABC Chorale practices diligently each fall semester for the annual presentation of Handel’s Messiah. Because of space limitations, the concert is offered on two successive nights. More than 900 people packed into the Torrey Auditorium on these two nights to hear this musical masterpiece. Under the direction of Mr. Todd Scovill, the Chorale sang familiar numbers: “For Unto Us A Child Is Born,” “Glory To God,” and the time-honored “Hallelujah Chorus.” Several trusted Christ on Friday night after an evangelistic message by Dr. Ron Comfort.
