Youth Ministry News: This Week.

A Gift for our Graduates! 
Hey Church: Here’s a chance to bless our graduating class!  Each of our Senior students will receive a Bible on Graduation Sunday.  This week, you can personalize their Bible in one of the following ways:

1: Encourage them.  Bibles for each of our graduates will be in the Fellowship Hall over the next two weeks. Highlight your favorite verses, write a note in the margins, or leave a card!  Take a moment after Church, or stop by anytime this week.
2: Buy a Bible.  The Class of 2016 is huge!  Please consider purchasing a Bible to offset the cost; each Bible is $15. Checks to KCEPC, with ‘High School Bible’ in the memo. 

Student’s name/bible missing?  Let Michael know, and we’ll get one ordered.

This Month: Let’s Bless our Graduates!
God has worked in and through our Senior class.  Join us this month for the following events:

1) Our Graduation Sunday recognition is May 15th.  We’ll present the Class of 2016 to the congregation, have our leaders pray for them, and include a picture slideshow of each graduate.  Parents, please remember us to send us 2 pictures of your child: One as an infant/child, the other as their senior picture.

2)  Our Community Baccalaureate Service is designed to recognize & celebrate the spiritual dimension of graduation.  
SVHS: Held on Saturday, May 14th, at 4p in the gym. 
BHS: Held on Saturday, May 14th, at 4p in the gym. 
The service is open to all Seniors, students, faculty, and the community.
