    The chapel speaker was Dr. Daniel Moosbrugger, Truett-McConnell’s Vice President for Administrative Services. He brought a message from 1 Samuel 16:6-12 on Samuel’ choice of one of the sons of Jesse to be king of Israel.
   The theme of his message was “Breaking the Mold of Mediocrity.”  Dr. Moosbrugger explained that to be mediocre is to be ordinary or adequate and not live up to our full potential. We are all created unique and have a God-given purpose in the body of Christ, just like Jesse’ son, David, who was a shepherd.  God does not look at our outward appearance nor our circumstances nor upbringing but looks at our hearts. He spoke on these three points of mediocrity:

    The chapel speaker was Dr. Larry Grays, senior pastor of The Midtown Bridge Church in Atlanta, GA.  Dr. Grays used as his text the passage from John 11 in which Jesus raised Lazarus from the grave. 
   His sermon centered around the emphases that God works through a faith that obeys and that no problem is too big for God.

    The weekly chapel service was held on Tuesday this week instead of the usual Thursday to accommodate the schedule of the guest performers, the Sons of Jubal.  
   The Sons of Jubal is a men’s chorus sponsored by the Georgia Baptist Convention Worship and Music Ministry and directed by Dr. Jon Duncan, GBC Worship and Music Specialist.  It is a group of 60-90 men, active in Georgia Baptist churches, who comprise the chorus, the team of handbell ringers and the orchestra that accompanies the group.
   Their music was uplifting and inspiring and exceedingly well received by all those in attendance.  In addition to students, faculty and staff of the college, a considerable number of community residents attended the concert as well.
   Three TMC staff members, as well as about a dozen TMC alumni, are members of the Sons of Jubal.

   The chapel speaker was Kevin (Chappie) Hynes, chaplain to the University of Georgia Bulldogs football team and campus minister for the Fellowship of Christian Athletes at UGA.  His nickname of Chappie was given to him by the players on the UGA football team.
   His theme was “People forget what you’ve done, but they never forget how you treat them.”  He stated that he loves the student-athletes as they are, using these guidelines found in James 1:19:

   Truett-McConnell College students welcomed back Scott Kindig, the Student Consultant with the GBC and Director of Super WOW. The Tim Johnson Band led in a wonderful worship service before Scott brought a messages to the student body.
   Scott spoke about how Christians allow the distractions of this world take their attention away from focusing on God and His Word, making it difficult for them to hear from God. He encouraged the student body to read in God’s Word daily because God delights in revealing Himself and making His will known to His children.
   The scripture text for the message was from the first chapter of Ephesians. The theme of the message was that Jesus wants His children to be in Him because He has everything that we need. God created us to so that He may inhabit us and glorify Him and take that message of hope in Christ to a fallen world.  He went on to explain that we need to be changed from the inside out and used the example of a piece of popcorn that changes from a kernel to a fluffy ball of popcorn from the inside out. We should be like the kernels of popcorn and attract people to Christ by the sweet aroma of our lives submitted to Christ.
