“We’re in the middle of a chapter on ethics, in our worldview class.” Principal Isaac’s eyebrows raised as he continued explaining the background of his class, “Ethics are taught, morality is caught. It started with that. They had to think about that, what does it mean…I didn’t really give them any context.” His class referenced the family to understand the quip. If a dad doesn’t live out what he’s teaching at home, the family isn’t going to either. “Then we took a look at 1 Corinthians 15:33…in summary, it’s the verse that says, ‘bad company corrupts good character’.”
There was more talking than game planning before the games on December 28 and 29 inside the Comet gym. Players from Hillcrest’s 2000 second place in state team gathered with the 2001 third place team. Conversations didn’t center on Basketball or the old days. Discussions centered with how kids are doing and what is new in the workplace. Younger alumni shared how college is going, what campus ministries they’re involved in, and some of the challenging things that are happening on their campus. But when the laces tightened the focus shifted to a game the 30+ alumni who gathered knew by heart, instructed by Coach Preston to approach the court with special attention.
Hillcrest unloaded three math teams from the bus at the MSU-Moorhead campus on Wednesday, March 6. The Comets have a tradition of performing well at the Tri-College Mathematics Competition, and a certain level of expectation follows students each year. Wednesday was no exception, and the Comets delivered a top team and top scorer again.
Two teen mothers gave their hearts to Christ after reading with us Ephesians 5. That's right, Ephesians 5. When has that happened in this history of the world? It was so powerful. I don't remember a time being part of an evangelism outreach where the Holy Spirit was so evident. Wow! It was such a great day.
