Fall Fest

November 4

From hand-dipped corn dogs to Krispy Kreme doughnuts, there were lots of delicious choices at the Fall Fest booths this year. And for those who enjoyed playing games, we had the "Pumpkin Chunkin" game, which is like bowling but with a pumpkin! There was also an inflatable obstacle course, a dart game, and several more activities. Thank you to all who helped with the booths and came to support Ozark's students!

Love & Death

November 2

Friday night, Ozark's Drama class presented the play "Love and Death" during the vespers program. It depicted the controversy between Christ and Satan, illustrated by the characters Love and Death. Mortals chained and in bondage to death could only be released by Christ's love on the cross. The play demonstrated how Christ now holds the key to death and Satan is defeated and his prisoners released.
