Reverend Dr. Robert C. Scott is the speaker for this service in the Aymer Center which marks the beginning of the academic year and is a time when the Seminary community joins together asking God’s guidance throughout the coming academic year. It is also a time that new students sign their names in a document which serves as a part of the historical record of the Seminary. The public is invited to attend the service.

The service will be preceded by a heavy hors d'oeuvre reception in the Aymer Center from 5:00 p.m. to 5:45 p.m. Please let Mrs. Phyllis Wells know no later than Friday, September 7th, if you would like to attend the reception and the number of people you will bring as guests. pwells@hoodseminary.edu
