Celebrating Our Graduates

We celebrate our graduating Seniors! They have had a wild end to High School! Graduating in unique circumstances, we pray for their future and celebrate them with their families. Although we cannot gather together to celebrate, our seniors’ families hope that we can gather in August and bless them as a sending forth to leave for  college. Until then, we will celebrate with their families as they gradate from High School!

“From a current college student: When you start college or training, remember that everyone is in the same place of knowing practically no one. –  Do your homework. – From a recent college grad: Go to class, pay attention to the syllabus. – It doesn’t matter if you like the professor or not, do your work.” – Christiansen Family
