On May 10th, SEBC celebrated the graduating class of 2013. In the commencement ceremony, Dr. Hawkins charged the graduates to avoid the hazard of comparison and trust God to fulfill his unique purpose for each of them. Our guest speaker was Jeff Jones, an SEBC alumnus, who is the senior pastor of Chase Oaks Church in Plano Texas. He spoke from 2 Timothy 2:1-9, explaining to the students that they were responsible for influencing their generation for the cause of Christ and for passing the gospel to the next generation. He gave each gradate a baton to remind them of the task that is now theirs. Ferrell Lucas Gossett was the class valedictorian and Kellie April Curb the salutatorian. Congratulations to the 2013 graduates!

Reflecting God through the Proverbs- Spring Bible Study
A proverb is a concentrated, catchy and practical statement designed to provide insight into life. Biblical proverbs, written by wise King Solomon and others, are designed to provide the reader with wisdom and skill for living.
“Reflecting God through the Proverbs” is the title for the series of studies taught by Southeastern president Dr. Don Hawkins during the spring semester. According to Dr. Hawkins, “The concept of wisdom as reflected in Proverbs involves developing the practical skill for living in a manner that pleases God. Thus the title of our study, ‘Reflecting God through the Proverbs’, expresses the ultimate goal of this series of studies.”
Among the topics to be covered during the semester are securing wisdom, experiencing God’s guidance, overcoming temptation, handling our finances, dealing with anger, cultivating friendships, developing diligence and resolving conflict. “As you can see from these topics, our studies will touch life in an extremely practical way,” Dr. Hawkins observed. “These classes provide an excellent means for Southeastern Bible College to serve the greater Birmingham community, and there is no charge to participate.”
Evening classes will begin Monday, January 28 at 7 p.m. and meet in classroom to 244 (entrance A). Morning classes will begin Tuesday, January 29 at 10:30 a.m., and will also meet in classroom to 244. To register for this free class, please contact Anita Scroggins at (205) 970-9213 or by e-mail at email@example.com.
