“He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” (Micah 6:8, 2016 MS Class Verse)
Our MS graduates had a beautiful evening for their Graduation Ceremony on Thursday, May 26, 2016. The class gathered on the lawn outside the school for photos and then filed into the auditorium to the traditional “Pomp and Circumstance.” Ms. Kelly VanDenBerg, MS Math teacher, gave the welcome and then Mr. Brad Mitchell, HS Principal and father of three grads, opened in prayer. The students sang their class song “Build Your Kingdom Here.” Dr. Tim Hoeksema then presented the Class Honors (listed below).
Graduates Jana Kunz and Joshua Wise, recipients of the Christian Leadership award, fondly remembered memories from their years at TC and thanked their families and TC staff for their support and guidance.
The Reflection and Challenge was given by Pastor Amado Lobatos, father of one of the graduates. He unpacked the class verse Micah 6:8 and reminded them that as they move forward in life that walking humbly with your God will allow you to do “crazy things for Christ.” He encouraged them to stay confident in the Lord and he will never let them down.
Diplomas and bibles were presented and after closing prayer by Mr. Bob Venhousen, the students headed to the HS gym for punch, treats and hugs from their families.
