What a strange spring these students have had to the end of their academic year! We surround them with our love and admiration for their hard work and accomplishments. We also offer our compassion and support for the tinge of grief this end may have brought. We are proud of them for the challenge they have accepted to learn and grow- stretching their minds and imaginations, and our prayers and love will follow them wherever life leads them.
We’d like to offer a special “hooray” for our graduates who have been leaders in our congregation. Please click on the VidHug links below to give a video greeting to Macon, Ike and Sam who have completed their high school careers. We also delight in Zaria, who finished her work at Agnes Scott this year. We hope they will stay involved in the life of our congregation, but we take this opportunity to recognize all that has come before!
