Elections were held for student government positions today. Each class was asked to come to the library and go to one of four ballot boxes to vote. The results were announced over the intercom just before the end of the school day. The 2016-2017 Student Council officers are: Servant Leader/President – Symone Steward, Campus Ministries Coordinator – Christina Mercado, Service Coordinator – Jake Johnson, Communications Coordinator – Holly Hardin, Finance Officer – Donovan Allen, Activities Coordinator – Sara Adalla. Elections for class offices are scheduled for next week.
On February 27th, for both the first and second services students and staff used their talents to praise God. The worship service began in song with Avery Kroll, Brianna Underwood, Mr. Dave Fuentes, Aiden Kroll and Colton Taylor leading the congregation in Blessed Assurance as the call to worship. Later in the service Mike Downs told the children’s story, Abigail Anderson had the prayer, and Ian Petersen, Mrs. Hardin with Camden Armstrong called for the offering. The teaching covered Luke 14. Three times a scripture passage was read, drama team members acted out short vignettes then Coach Ley with Symone Stewart and Moises Canas shared their experience from the Christmas Banquet for the homeless, and then Chaplain Jamieson tied it all together. Behind the scenes Tyler Bell and Donovan Allen managed assigning microphones to all the participants and running the sound boards.

Team MCJ, [Mike Downs, Cody Tishaw and Jake Johnson] narrowly defeated the Abibrees [Abigail Anderson, Brianna Underwood, and Brianna Burks] in the final round of the 2015 Bible Bowl. This years questions came from the gospel of Mark. For the past three weeks 10 teams representing all the classes and 30% of the entire student body responded to questions from the book of Mark. The first round format was five short answer questions, followed by first to raise their hands and ending with a round to complete the verse. The winning team will choose a restaurant and join Chaplin Jamieson in a victory dinner.
