Dear Senior Parents,
I hope this letter finds you doing well in the midst of many plans being made for your upcoming graduate. I understand this time can be busy, emotional, and stressful! Please know that we are praying for you and your family during this time.
As a church and Next Gen Ministry, we want to celebrate with you and your senior as well as encourage them. We want to invite your family to join us in doing so on Sunday morning, April 29.
- We will recognize every senior at the end of the 9:20 a.m. service and start of the 11:00 a.m. service. Watch for more information on this in the weeks to come.
- We will host a Senior and Family Luncheon in the Fellowship Hall following the 11:00 a.m. worship service. This is designed for your immediate family and is free for graduates and parents. An investment of $10 per person is required for siblings and/or grandparents if you would like for them to attend as well. Pastor Steve and Mrs. Donna will join us for lunch and pictures with seniors. They will also share words of encouragement with the seniors and their families.
- We will have a photo presentation play during the luncheon. If you have pictures that you would like to include, please upload up to three photos. Please include a baby picture and senior picture if possible.
- We will conclude our time together at the luncheon by giving you the opportunity to spend some time with your Senior and to give them a blessing and charge as they go forward in this next phase of life. I want to encourage you to begin thinking about this time. Each of your family members could write an encouraging letter to be read and then have a prayer time with them. You could invite others to join you after the luncheon for this special time of blessing. You could have others write encouraging words to your graduate that you could present to your son or daughter on this day. The possibilities are endless. Be creative and intentional in how you make this special moment meaningful.
If you plan on attending, you need to RSVP by Thursday, April 19th, by going to HERE. I hope that you will make it a priority to celebrate this time with us! We desire for this to be a family time, not just a graduate recognition.
Please call the Next Gen Office, (901) 347-5690, if you have any questions. We look forward to celebrating your graduating senior along with you!
