Last Thursday, December 5th, we celebrated the first Christmas at the Oaks on campus. This event commemorates the advent of the birth of Christ and the conception of Oak Hills under a prominent oak tree overlooking Lake Marquette where six men gathered and prayed for God to provide the property for a camp in 1925. After the reading revisiting the oak tree that symbolizes Oak Hills’ beginnings, hymns were sung and mugs clinked as students drank hot apple cider to stay warm until the climactic event of the night, the lighting of the tree. A big thanks to all participants and Amity Graphics for the mugs!
