Bethany College Children’s Collections Expands to T.W. Phillips Memorial Library
Bethany College to Hold Fifth-Annual Fall Symposium
Panel members included T.W. Phillips Chair of Religious Studies Dr. Brooke Deal, Chaplain of the college the Rev. Scott Thayer, dean of Buffalo Seminary and director of church relations the Rev. Dr. Larry Grimes '64 and Bethany graduate the Rev. Dr. Adam Kradel '95. On Oct. 14, Dr. Grimes joined the Rev. Dr. Peter Morgan for a forum celebrating the Bethany College/National City Christian Church heritage.
The forum was followed by a worship experience in the sanctuary of National City Christian Church. President Miller addressed the congregation and Grogan, Dr. Grimes, the Rev. Thayer and Carol Grimes shared in the liturgy. A luncheon with several Bethany Alumni followed the service. The weekend provided a way to celebrate a heritage that dates back to Alexander Campbell’s call of a national church to be built at the center of this nation’s power.
Three presidents of the United States shared membership in the Christian Church Disciples of Christ: James Garfield, Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan. The vision of Campbell and its fruition in the ministry of National City Christian Church realizes this dream.
