Graduation Recognition Services Sunday, May 16 During the 9:30 & 11:00 am Worship Services We want to recognize all graduating seniors during our morning worship services. Please make reservations with the Student Ministry office and submit a senior picture to be shown during the service. In this musical, our children will share how to “suit up” as knights and princesses in the Kingdom of God. Living as a child of the King starts with who we are on the inside, and determines how we act on the outside. This will truly be a “knight” to remember and one you do not want to miss!
