Ready or not ABC, here comes fall. The weather is right on schedule, you can feel the cooler air and see the leaves changing. Isn't our God awesome to plan the seasons in such a way that we can predict when they will come?

Each year a day is set aside specifically for the parents and the grandparents of the students to be able to come and visit the campus.
Living in the past is not a healthy way to live life, but when you can live in the present with friends from the past, that is uplifting and delightful. Homecoming at ABC is a time when students past and present can connect again or for the first time and can encourage each other to live godly.
Those who have been away from ABC have come home for a short while.
Prayer and breakfast, what better way is there to start your day? Students and Alumni had the opportunity to share praises and requests and then pray for each other.
Real live answers to normal problems in ministry, that's what we got during this Discussion Panel.
We love being able to take a fresh look at God's word. It's great to do this as a group of current and previous students.
The Blue/Gray soccer game is something we look forward to each time Homecoming rolls around. It's great to be able to see old and new students playing on the same field together. The competition was still fierce, no one was going to back down just because they were fellow ABCers.
All good things must come to an end, and this includes homecoming. These are a few of the leftover pictures from this wonderful weekend.
A close game is always fun to watch. This game was full of very close matches and was a blast for us to watch. We cheered hard and will just have to cheer louder next time.
A banquet at ABC is sure to satisfy the taste buds. However, a banquet that includes Homecoming events not only satisfies the taste buds but also the mind. We enjoyed great presentations of awards and a challenge to continue in ministry with a smile.
Winter is marked by coats, scarves, and your breath floating in the air in front of you. The ABC campus is not marked by such signs right now. We are enjoying some warm weather and the amazing Fall colors that God has provided for as long as it lasts.
The Ladies Conference is a special treat for the women students and staff as well as ladies from around the community. Sometimes it's good to just have a group of ladies that women can talk with.
Some women never grow out of the desire to have tea with all their friends. ABC's Ladies Fall Luncheon goes beyond this and adds real food and drinks.
Chorale sang two special musics for Homecoming, this is one of them.
This is one of the songs that Chorale sang as a special number during the Homecoming Banquet.
The Jubilate treated us to a special music during Homecoming.
Is is amazing that death can look so beautiful. As the trees around us prepare for winter their leaves slowly die and fall off giving us a spectacular color collage on the trees and underneath our feet.
Twice a year we have a blood drive at ABC. This semester we had a good turn out of students willing to give blood.
The home games are coming to a close for our soccer team. Thankfully this one wasn't the last because the ABC students aren't ready to be finished being fans.
Everyone here agrees, it was chilly this morning.
What a game! The last home game of the season was a blast. The players played hard, the fans had a good time, and the senior v-ball players were honored at the end of the game for all their hard work and redeeming qualities.
Each semester Student Council hosts a Spirit Week on campus. To show their school spirit the students dress up and act with school pride. Monday was Twin Day on campus.
What could show more spirit for Spirit Week than showing off how socially awkward you can be? Well, that's exactly what Student Council thought would be good for Tuesday's theme.
Student Council decided we needed to get back to some good old Chicago roots.
Today has started with a refreshing rain and a reminder that God's mercies are new every morning.
A very popular event on campus are Student Council activities. This time they let us use our creative juices on the common, everyday cookie. The results were spectacular.
"Love is a friendship set to music." We definitely set our lives to music today. School spirit never had better timing and melody.
This was our chance to become the school's mascot. What better way to show school spirit than by becoming your own Warrior!

This is just a little "blast from the past" of what basketball has been like at ABC over the past five years. To this year's team: this is what you have to look up to. We're cheering you on!
