With December at its mid-point, it is a good time to update you with news from "Seminary hill."
This past week was the final week of classes for the professors and students. Next week they face exams according to the schedule posted on the Seminary website. Pray for the students as they take their finals, that they may prepare well and give a good account of themselves to the Lord of their talents and studies.
Following exams the Seminary will be on a two week Christmas/New Year break (Dec.22- Jan.2). Seminary will still be open during that time and staff will be available to assist you with any needs. Please call ahead if you have any special needs (616-531-1490).
