Graduation 2019
CLASS of 2019



Class Verse

He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.
 
Isaiah 40:29-31

GRADUATION SERVICE   
Saturday, May 25, 2019, 10am in the ALA gymnasium 


We begin the morning with a worship service at 10am. The graduation ceremony immediately follows the service. This year’s speaker is Pastor Daniel Rautenberg who is the Field Coordinator for Native American Missions.

All are welcome; there are no tickets used for seating and no limit to guests. Doors will open at 8:30am. To be fair to all, each graduate family is asked to limit seating in the “prime” (padded) seating area to six (6) seats. There will be plenty of seating in other areas of the gym.

Following the ceremony, there will be a reception line outside with opportunity to congratulate our 2019 graduates. Once the grads have reported to the office, they are free to leave the campus and go to their various celebrations with family and friends.
