Baccalaureate Service 2009

This past sunday we celebrated the High School Graduates from 2009.
Blair - Lumberton - Texas Christian University
Michael - West Brook - Blenn College
Kendall - Lumberton - Blenn College
James - Hardin Jefferson - Texas A&M
Justina - West Brook - Sam Houston State University
Ryan - Hardin Jefferson - Lamar University
Kye - Lumberton - Texas Wesleyan University
It is a bittersweet moment in youth ministry to see the graduates in their cap and gown. On one hand you are proud to see the achievement, on the other hand you are reminded that life is continuing on and they will soon be gone. However this years seniors have a unique place in our church and in the world. Everyone of these seniors are smart, talented, and driven to make something and become someone. Each of these students are continuing their education and I am convinced will continue in their dedication and commitment to Christ and the local church. There will always come that moment when the world gives you an award or a status that marks your development or position, but let me remind you, John 15:15I no longer call you servants, because a servant does not know his master's business. Instead, I have called you friends, for everything that I learned from my Father I have made known to you. What God has put in your heart, your calling, your purpose, and your identity is set. You have the privilege of going and being a church member, a Sunday school teacher, a worker in the ministries of the church, even to go and serve. Be real, be committed, and never stop running the race of the young Christian.
God bless our seniors, all the graduates of 2009 and all the youth of today.
