Youth Sunday Graduates

On Sunday, June 4, we celebrated and honored children, youth and adults in our congregation who have been promoted and have graduated. Two students read the scriptures, and four spoke about their Christian experience and future plans.

Speaking of David Hall, we'd like to give him a special shout-out for earning the prestigious California Lutheran University's Presidential 4-year Scholarship and Julie Vorce for earning Biola University's Provosot Academic 4-year Scholarship. Both of these are Christian universities and we're exceptionally proud of them, and of all the other graduates, too.
