Erika's Graduation, Part 1: Baccalaureate

Our middle child graduated from high school this June. Some of the local ministers got together to put on a Baccalaureate service, which is no longer being put on by public schools. They mailed invitations to all the seniors' families.

This is the pastors praying together before the service.

Music was provided by a group of Christian kids from the school. They have formed a band that plays at the youth center that is a Christian ministry in the town. The young man to the left with the guitar, however, is not a student. He is a youth pastor intern from England.

We didn't get any other pictures of the service, but one of the pastors gave an excellent devotional using duct tape as the object lesson! They had refreshments at the end. It was definitely a modernized version of the baccalaureate, but appropriately and tastefully done. They are hoping to do it again next year and are hoping for better attendance. I'm glad we took the time to go.

What a great idea! And duct tape is always a winner. :)

I wrote a comment, but I don't know what happened to it. Anyway, I thought the baccelaureate would be boring with lots of more or less meaningless pomp and circumstance. But it was very good: challenging and teen-friendly.
