The Christmas Pageant is a biannual musical presented at Barclay College.

Saturday, December 7 at 7:00 p.m.

Sunday at 3:00 p.m.

Sunday, Dec 8 at 7:00 p.m.

The musical evolved out of an annual Sunday school program given each year in a church basement in 1985. The sets were crude and the program just like other Sunday school programs. However, the audience became so large that the youth minister of the church began to look for another venue for the program. He was able to stage the next year’s program in the Banbury Auction building on Highway 54 at Haviland. Again, the crowd was “standing room only.” Today, 28 years later, the musical is held in the gymnasium of Barclay College. When the college president knew that the auction building was being sold, he offered the college gym and had a doorway enlarged so the camels could enter. The 70 member cast includes the college choir and other people who volunteer to be a part of the cast. If you would like to be a part of the musical, just ask. The attendance has grown to about 1200 people for the three performances. Included in the musical are camels, doves, sheep, a donkey, a horse and numerous other animals. The wise men are led in on camels through the street of Bethlehem by a 15 member entourage. The background of shops in Bethlehem encompasses one side of the gym and with that background “The Story of Christmas” becomes a meaningful setting for Christ’s birth. Children enjoy the excitement brought to the scene by the animals.

The college alumni volleyball and soccer game will be held on October 4. The alumni volleyball game will take place at 4:30 pm. Before the soccer game, there will be a tail gate party serving hamburgers, hot dogs and dessert. The party begins at 5:30 pm and soccer will follow at 7:30 pm. Come support the alumni team and stick around for the Ladies Auxiliary Sale in Hockett Auditorium on October 5. Visitors are welcome to peruse the sale items ahead of time. If you would like to make a donation, there will be a receptacle available during the alumni game.

We’ll see you there!

Soccer Team

The Barclay College Men’s Soccer team will be joining with the Haviland Friends Church and Siete Ejidos Friends Church in Sinalo, Mexico to provide an outreach ministry in Siete Ejidos and the local areas. The plan is for the team, along with Trent and Christy Jacks, and Chuck Townsend from Haviland Friends Church, to travel to Siete Ejidos over Fall Break, October 13 – 20. The ministry will include relationship building and special events for children and of course soccer games with a couple of local town teams. The “goal” of the trip is to join with the local church as it reaches out to the local community, especially to the men who have thus far not shown a lot of interest in the church. The cost of the trip is roughly $300 per person not including travel visas. We would like to encourage our alumni soccer players and fans to utilize the alumni soccer game event as an opportunity to help send them out as disciples who are making disciples. If you would like to contribute to this, please designate your gift with the title BARCLAY COLLEGE SOCCER MISSIONS TRIP to MEXICO 2013.
