This Sunday we will have the privilege of recognizing and giving thanks for graduates in our congregation. If you or anyone in your immediate family is celebrating a graduation this spring, please let us know today. We would love to include them in our prayers of blessing.
We especially give thanks for twelve ECLC members graduating from high school: Griffin A., Allison B., Arlo D., Michael E., Beck R., Cecilia B., Chloe P-F, Grey M., Isaac H., Lars L., Nicole M., and Seaver K. Three of these students will offer a message during both services, others will lead worship in other ways, and we will together honor and bless them during the 10:30 service.
Thanks be to God for these graduates, all they have accomplished, and the Spirit’s faithful leading in their future endeavors.
God of our beginnings, we give you thanks for these students and the gifts they have offered our community. We ask your blessing upon them as they stand at the threshold of a new adventure. Remind them always of your unconditional love. Give them the wisdom to seek your way and to proclaim your peace and justice. As they follow their unique calls to serve in your world, support them with your eternal grace. Amen.
