High School Senior Events

Senior Adventure

You have almost finished high school! It is an exciting, but also hard transitioning time. This year Kyle has meticulously read, searched, and planned a SENIOR ADVENTURE that you will remember and will help launch you into a continued relationship with Christ, as your next phase of life starts.

I can’t tell you where, but I can tell you some other details that are involved with this adventure. The cost is $25, but we will scholarship if needed.

Senior Adventure

May 20, Sunday- Leave ideally after church (12:30 pm)

May 21, Monday- Students return in the evening. 

Senior Sunday

Sunday, May 27th, is Senior Sunday. That Sunday is about your student! First is Senior Breakfast at 9:15am. Invite your student’s family to come celebrate your student with breakfast. Then your student will get into their cap and gown and at 10:45 and commence down the aisle in the service. Kyle will reveal their adventure and connect it to the things of God.

Also at Senior Breakfast there are tables and a back board (3ft) to decorate with your student’s achievements, memories, and favorite things. There will be times on May 25 and 26 to decorate them.
