This month we will celebrate a special FaithLife Milestone with our graduating high school seniors. “Senior Sending” will be held on Sunday, May 19th. The graduating seniors will be recognized at the worship services. The junior class will be hosting a brunch for the graduates and their families.
As part of this Milestone, the Atonement Quilters have sewn quilts for all our graduates and they will be presented to them in worship. We give thanks for these generous, talented women!
