Missionaries From Moldova Speak at Banquet
Release and Delta Kappa welcomed North Central alumni and missionaries Andrew and Nancy Raatz to be the speakers for this year’s Banquet for the Broken. More than 180 students and community members were in attendance. The event was hosted in the Clark Danielson Gymnasium on the evening of Jan. 28.. The musical entertainment for the evening was a small jazz band. Appetizers and desserts were served to the guests. Crocheted hearts and jewelry, handmade by the recovering women living in the Freedom Home, were sold with 100 percent of the proceeds supporting the home.
The Target Holidazzle Parade began in 1992, featuring a variety of floats and groups all lit up by colorful Christmas lights. The parade runs Thursdays through Sundays, kicking off the day after Thanksgiving and ending the Sunday before Christmas Day.

Director and Assistant Fine Arts Professor Wayne Matthews commented that one of the main focuses for this year’s production was character development and how “Jesus” really knew the characters’ stories.

In addition, each cast member individually met with “Jesus”, portrayed by junior secondary education major Ben Schrade.
Cosmonaught is different from your average band.

They want to see a growth of understanding who God is sprout up in each of their listeners’ lives.
