Week at a Glance: Feb. 9-15

Below is a rundown of known events happening this week around Messiah College. This list will be updated as events are advertised or made known to The Pulse/The Swinging Bridge.

Alternate Chapels

An alternate chapel entitled “Being Served” will be held in Frey 110 tonight at 6 p.m. Dr. Angela Hare will be speaking to students on what it means for a faith journey to be served while working in an organization that is always doing serving.

Dr. David Hagenbuch and the Messiah College Marketing Club will host an alternate chapel called “Are Super Bowl Ads Mindful Marketing?” in Boyer 131 on Tuesday at 7 p.m. Dr. Hagenbuch and members of the Marketing Club will draw upon a paradigm used on his marketing website (www.MindfulMarketing.org/) to evaluate the mindfulness, or lack thereof, of this year’s Super Bowl advertisements. Their goal is to “identify Christian/biblical values that are either upheld or compromised” by the advertisements.
