Dear Church family,

I would like to take a moment to congratulate our class of 2020 graduates. I am proud of this class. This class has seen some hardships during their senior year that many of us did not experience during our final year of high school. Yet, our seniors have persevered and excelled during this time. With all the loss this class has experienced, I have seen our seniors press on in their studies, in their family relationships, in maintaining their friendships, in holding on to their hope in Christ, and in placing their identity in Christ alone. 
     
As I have watched this class grow up, I have been encouraged and impressed. I have seen their faith deepen in God. I have witnessed their mature responses to many difficult situations that extend beyond this past semester. I have seen tears of joy and tears of sorrow from them. I have seen forgiveness sought and forgiveness given by our seniors. They are a class that learns from past victories and mistakes to make wise decisions for their present and future circumstances. They have set an example for younger and older generations as to what perseverance and faith in God should look like. I know God is preparing them for great things for His kingdom. I am honored to have witnessed God’s work within our 2020 Seniors. Please join me in congratulating and praying for our wonderful seniors.
In Christ, Jason Hubbard

Youth Sunday will take place at a future date TBD.
