A Not So Terrible Parable
Performed by Berkeley Hills and Wexford students
It was a dark and stormy night . . . a man lay injured by the side of the road. Two travelers passed him by. Mysteriously, he is delivered to the doorstep of the quaint Mountain Vista Inn, where the startled guests, the butler and the maid (of course!), and a famous detective must use their wits to sleuth out every clue to get to the bottom of this mystifying whodunit.
Please join us for mystery, candlelight, organ music, strange pizza toppings, and our host, Alistair McAlister, in this Master’s Peace Theater re-creation of the parable that Jesus told about the Good Samaritan.

Spiritual Enrichment Week
February 18-21

We kicked-off Spiritual Enrichment Week with a special chapel on Friday, February 14. After worship, Mr. Kolarik talked about the purpose and vision for the week as we all dedicate the time to spiritual growth, and  take responsibility for the status of our most important relationship  -  our relationship with God.
Each day during Spiritual Enrichment week, we will have chapel with praise and worship as well as a guest speaker. Our prayer is that the week energizes and encourages  each of us to make God our source of life  .
We believe it will be one of the best weeks of the year!
