Once again The Lutheran Church of Our Savior will be blessing our graduating high school seniors and acknowledging their parents at the 10:30 worship on June 17. During this deeply meaningful and emotional service parents are thanked and acknowledged for keeping the promises they made at their child’s baptism being raised in the Christian faith. Graduating seniors affirm the promises they made at their confirmation and together parents and child come forward for the blessing ceremony.
The young men and women are presented with an afghan that has the Serenity Prayer on it as a gift from the congregation before receiving a blessing from their parents, and then offering one in return. Please keep our graduating seniors who will be in attendance, and their parents in your prayers, as they step out into the world as young adult Christians. The list of graduating seniors, their high schools, and post-graduation destinations will be shared in the July-August issue.
