Please join our graduation celebration
Tonight, May 25th at 7 p.m.
We’ve grown together…Spiritually, physically, intellectually.
We’ve prayed, we’ve laughed, we’ve loved, we’ve cried.
Through it all we became a family, as we grew in the Lord.
We know graduation may seem like an ending, but to us it’s just a new beginning.

Verse of the Week
“I have hidden Your Word in my heart that I might not sin against you.” Psalm 119:11
Thought: Have you been growing spiritually? If not, could it be that you are not storing God’s Word in your heart? Memorizing His Word will help keep you from sin and make it easier to obey Him. Soak Up God’s Word.
