Monday marked a milestone in Beacon history and in 18 young peoples' lives.
On this day, Beacon's first JK class graduated from Grade 8.
10 years ago they began their journey at Beacon, looking much different than they do today.
The students carried a rose
during their processional
which they gave to their parents.
This particular group of Grade 8 students has been blessed with wonderful musical gifts and they shared one of their band pieces with us.
The students framed this evening with God's word in verse...
Mr. Mulder was the parent speaker and taught us all how to make cupcakes!
More importantly, he reminded the students that they know what good things
should go in to their lives so that good things can come out in their lives.
It was a wonderful analogy!
Sara and Sean, the student speakers, spoke of their class family photo album and
being a part of God's larger family album and what this has meant and will mean in their lives.
Our graduates received their diplomas and a Bible.
There was time for congratulations and hugs...
...and come silliness, too!
Above all, we pray that God will bless and keep these students
as they move on to the next stage of their journey.
We will miss them!
