Congratulations on your upcoming graduation!  We are so glad that you have been a part of our ministry at First Baptist, and we would like to honor your achievement in several ways.

Graduation Recognition Bulletin Board

In April we will put together a bulletin board outside the Youth Center to recognize your graduation and transition to the next stage of life.  Please provide the youth office with a senior picture or another picture of yourself (digital format preferred) by March 27th.

Senior Recognition Dinner

To celebrate our graduating seniors, we will host a Senior Dinner on Tuesday, April 18th, at 6:00pm. Dinner is free to senior students and their parents.  Additional family members and friends are welcome to attend at a cost of $12 each.  Please make reservations no later than Monday, March 27th, by contacting Kasi Kalb at 726-6001 or  When making reservations, please be sure to include the total number in your party, their names, the school your student attends, and your contact info (including email address). 

Senior Slideshow

To make this occasion even more special, we will put together a slideshow for viewing during dinner on April 18th. Please provide 10-15 favorite photographs from your student’s life, including a senior picture.  PHOTOS MUST BE IN DIGITAL FORMAT.  Please put pictures on a CD or email them to no later than March 27th. CDs will not be returned. **You may submit pictures even if you are unable to attend**

Graduation Recognition Sunday

Finally, Graduate Recognition will be Sunday, May 21st.  Graduates will be honored in both worship services.  Students will meet in the hallway between the main atrium and the Gym (near the old choir room) 15 minutes prior to the start of the service they are attending.  Graduates will be seated together in a reserved section.  After they are recognized, they may return to the reserved section or sit elsewhere with family/friends.  Please RSVP to Kasi in the youth office by emailing or calling 726-6001 by May 14th with student’s full name and service (8:30, 9:40, or 11:00am) he or she will be attending.

College Life groups

Graduating seniors are encouraged to attend the college LIFE Group led by Aaron Slaughter after the summer of their graduation from high school. Aaron's class is held at 9:40 in room A248.

Remember, all seniors are encouraged to participate in the summer youth activities as well!  Once again, congratulations, and know that we are praying for you during this time of transition.

In Christ,
John Howard
Minister to Students
