Crusaders Volunteer at Regional Food Bank

Corn, OKLA – The Corn Bible Academy student body went to the Regional Food Bank of Oklahoma on Wednesday, May 7, as volunteers to help process food for the needy people of Oklahoma. The Food Bank is located on the south side of Oklahoma City and processes donated food of all types to be shipped to local government agencies, churches, and other food distribution sites in over 50 of the 77 counties in Oklahoma. Oklahoma is number five on the list of the “hungriest” states in the United States and one in seven Oklahoman’s is undernourished. One group of the students spent their time packaging bulk dry cereal from 4 foot by 4 foot boxes on pallets into household size packages. The plastic bags were repackaged into 15 pound cardboard boxes for shipment. The boxes were then stacked on pallets and secured for shipping. The second group of students worked on assembly lines to package donated crackers, cereal, snacks, and dry boxed foods into 12-15 pound boxes to be sent to food pantries. Other students then stacked and labeled the entire pallet of and moved the finished product to a storage area. The service day was enjoyable for the student body and 7,053 pounds of food were processed. This represents the equivalent of 5,876 meals for the needy people of Oklahoma.

CBA Band Takes Band Mini Tour

Corn , OKLA — The small but mighty CBA band headed out on a mini tour on the weekend of March the 1st and 2nd to Wichita and Newton, Kansas. The band left on Saturday morning to go to the Winter Jam concert in Wichita. The Christian music at the concert was a great start to the weekend . The band spent the night at Koerner Heights church in Newton and awoke to a change in the weather. The band was scheduled for the early worship service,  however, heavy snow and very cold temperatures forced the church to combine its two services and Sunday school into a shortened service. The band played 5 songs for the service. The snow continued to come down throughout the morning and forced the band to stay an extra night in Newton. The next morning the temperature was -2 and the bus drivers were not able to get the bus started until later that afternoon. The band finally arrived home late Monday evening.
