MOUNT VERNON— Joshua McPhatter, a senior at Brewton-Parker and recently crowned Homecoming King, was the speaker for the Black Heritage History chapel service on February 28. McPhatter opened his message by telling the students, “Our God is not of divisions. He is not a God of race, gender, or socioeconomic divisions.” He used the biblical passage of Jonah 3:1-10 to reveal how God is the God of second chances. The story of Jonah, a prophet, showed how we are all in need of second chances. Joshua McPhatter closed by reminding the students, “God can use anybody, no matter your background. God is beyond all barriers.”

Erica Branch provided music for this week’s chapel service through contemporary praise songs. She attends First Baptist Church of Vidalia, Georgia. Professor Jeff Audirsch provided the welcome and announcements. A group of five BPC students performed a step number.

Chapel is open to the community and held weekly at 11 a.m. on Tuesdays in Saliba Chapel.

Brewton-Parker College is the only accredited four-year Christian college in south Georgia.
