In just a few weeks, six of our teens will be graduating from high school. Eli Argo, Samuel Busbey, Conner Chichuk, Bailey Hughes, Nicole Lanius and JD McCracken. I know as a parent it is hard to believe that they have grown up so fast and have reached this point in their lives. We know you have loved them, encouraged them along the way and most importantly, taught them to love God and follow in the footsteps of Jesus. Young people, as you transition into college, trade school or the work force, I encourage you to continue to be Christian examples to all you meet. When I think of you, I am reminded of the words the apostle Paul wrote to Timothy in 2 Timothy 1:5, “When I call to rembrance the genuine faith that is you, which dwelt first in your grandmother Lois and your mother Eunice, and I am persuaded is in you also.” As we have watched you grow and become active in serving the Walter Hill congregation in various ways, your faith is evident. I encourage you to also remember the words Paul wrote to Timothy in 2 Timothy 3:14 -15, “But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.” We are so proud of you and this great accomplishment in your lives. We encourage you to always be faithful to the church which Christ gave His life for.
