A Word from Shaffka - May 2014

Parents, if you have a student that is graduating from high school this year, I am excited to let you know that we will be honoring our graduates on Sunday, May 18 at 6:00 PM, in our Graduate Recognition Service. We will need your graduate to turn in 5 photos covering from birth to graduate portrait and a questionnaire that will need to be completed by Sunday, May 4. By the request of our graduates, they will be using their questionnaire pre-recording interview that will be shown in the service. Church family, you will also have the opportunity to express your congratulations and gifts to graduates, immediately following the service in the gym for a reception. Each graduate will have a table setup in their honor, so you may place gifts and cards to express congratulations.

This year, we have graduates that are graduating with Homeschool, Choudrant, and Ruston High School. Homeschool graduation will be held at Cook Baptist Church on Saturday, May 17 at 2:00 PM. Choudrant graduation will be held at Howard Auditorium on Monday, May 19 at 7:00 PM. Ruston High graduation will be held at Thomas Assembly Center on Tuesday, May 20 at 7:00 PM.

On Thursday, May 22, our student ministry will be welcoming in our upcoming 7th Graders and their parents at 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM in the Ministry Building. Parents, we will have Q&A time and we will be providing details of upcoming events and activities that will be available for your student to get involved for the summer and upcoming school year. We will have food and games and recreation for your students lead by our Youth Leadership Team.

This year, our End of School Party will be held at Brandon Milton's camp on Lake Claiborne on Saturday, May 24, between 10:00 AM through 4:00 PM. Guys will need to bring a bag of chips and girls will need to bring some type of dessert or treats. We will have maps printed to show you how to get to Brandon's camp that we will send through email and can be picked up the church office as we get closer to date of the event.

Parents, if you are interested in helping with the planning and carrying out the plans with our student ministry, then I would like to invite you to our Youth Leadership Team/Youth Support Meetings. We usually have our meeting on the first Wednesday night of every month at 7:15 PM in the Youth 3 room upstairs in the Upper Room of the Ministry Building. If you are interested in being apart of the Youth Support Team, then caught me sometime at church or give me a call at the church office. I would love to visit with you on how you can be involved.

In His Grip,

Bro. Shawn
