Jesus Week at Alderson-Broaddus College, Sunday through Wednesday, will provide students with the opportunity to participate in several religious activities.
The week begins with the Baptist Campus Ministries and SGA sponsoring a free concert with Ashes Remain and 7eventh Time Down at 7 p.m. Sunday in the Funkhouser Auditorium on A-B's campus.
Ashes Remain's central theme is "What I've Become." This theme is certainly one that almost everyone can relate to, most of all teenagers trying to navigate lives that often seem completely upside down. According to the band, they want to represent the journey from that very real and dark place to one where there is hope and step into the light.
7eventh Time Down's compelling lead single, "Alive in You," introduces fans to the band's signature sound. The collection includes "World Changer," a well-crafted challenge to make a difference; the thought-provoking ballad "Worship Jesus," and "Rusty Nails," a poignant worship song.
According to the band, "There is definitely a place for dark music, but with our record, it's a little different because we turn our focus more towards proclaiming who we are in Christ. It's a declaration."
Monday through Wednesday, students can visit stations in the Chapel Lobby, the ground floor of Burbick, Meyers Hall Ground Floor, and the Cafeteria Entrance. These stations will provide scriptures, questions and allow time for reflection. They may also include a make-and-take activity.
Monday and Tuesday, Steve Willis will speak at 7 p.m. in the Wilcox Chapel. Willis is best known for his Emmy-award winning mini-series "Food Revolution" and is the author of "Winning the Food Fight. He is also the lead pastor of the First Baptist Church of Kenova.
On Wednesday, a Consecration Service led by BCM Leadership team will take place, along with worship through painting with Seth Hill, at 7 p.m. in the Wilcox Chapel.
