LBU School of Biblical Studies Newsletter
A Word from the Dean:
Workshops and Graduation are upon us. As I write these thoughts last minute preparations are being made for the activities next week. We have a good number of students and other guests planning to be with us for the workshops. Likewise, we have nearly 50 students in the Bible Studies who will be receiving their degrees. This will be the culmination of years of study and hard work. We want to honor all of our graduates next week.
If you are nearing completion your program let me encourage you to finish everything this year and be a part of the 2014 graduating class. I look forward to working with each of you as you press toward this goal.
The construction of the new Conference Center is complete. It really looks good and will be a great asset to the ongoing work of LBU. We will be having a special dedication service on Thursday following the last workshop session. Special thanks to everyone who has given to make this new facility a reality. If you haven’t had an opportunity to give toward this project it isn’t too late. A special offering will be received through the “Beginning of Miracles” offering again this year to enable us to be able to pay off this facility. Please consider having a part.
The summer session of classes begins a week after graduation. If you haven’t already enrolled I would like to encourage you to do so today. All the classes will be available on e-campus. We have a good slate of Bible classes being offered. The deadline for signing up is approaching. We need you to select what you want to take to ensure that the classes being offered will actually make. See you this summer!
I trust that each of you will have an enjoyable and fruitful summer as you serve our risen Lord.
In His wonderful name,
Dean of Biblical Studies

A Graduation Prayer
May I live my life to praise You,
Not for fortune, nor for fame,
May everything I say and do
Bring glory to Your name.
May my eyes stay fixed upon You
As I seek the way that's pure,
Tasting Your love and goodness
Sleeping and rising secure.
Planted by Your living streams
I'll delight in all Your ways,
Hidden by Your sheltering wings
With new mercies for each day.
Even in a dangerous land
When storms threaten to destroy,
At the cross I'll stand upon the Rock
My Strength, my Hope, my Joy.
Dear Lord, show me Your favor,
At all times keep me blessed,
May Your face ever shine upon me,
With peace and perfect rest.

THOUGHTS ON FOLLOWING cHRIST......
If you look up into His face and say, "Yes, Lord, whatever it costs," at that moment He'll flood your life with His presence and power.
- Alan Redpath
Yield yourself to Christ’s claims. Give Him the throne of your heart. Turn over to Him the regulation of your life. Trust in His atoning death. Love Him with all your soul. Obey Him with all your might and He will conduct you to heaven.
- A.W. Pink
The Way of Salvation.
Those who have a saving interest in Christ must be willing to part with all for Him, leave all to follow Him. Whatever stands in opposition to Christ, or in completion with Him for our love and service, we must cheerfully quit it, though ever so dear to us.
The grading system on Moodle is as follows:
You will receive a grade of 1-100 points for your workbook.
You will receive an overall grade of 1-100 points for your assignments. This grade will always be listed on the LAST assignment required for the course.
You will receive upon completing your final exam 1-100 points.
