The Devil on Trial

April 11, 2023

TEXARKANA, TEX. – Bethel Adventist Church School put on a play on Feb. 18, 2023 with Buford Griffith, III leading out with the vesper thought. Immediately following the vesper thought, church members and students of Bethel school presented the play entitled “The Devil on Trial.” There were witnesses from Adam and Eve to Annanias and Sapphira. Even poor Peter had an undercover witness to testify–the cutest little rooster with the sweetest cock-a-doodle-doo report. Samson and Delilah were also part of the play, portrayed by Christopher Manuel and his wife, Shanequa Manuel. Of course, the devil was found guilty and sentenced to death in hell’s fire never to tempt and torment the universe again. 

Lieutenant Mark Shemer and his wife, of Nash, Tex., along with Fire Chief Bruce Dinsmore and his wife, of Wake Village, Tex., were honored with a plaque for their continued service not only to Bethel Adventist Church School but to the community at large.
