Graduation Sunday

Sunday, June 2, 2019

Congregation: Join us as we celebrate our high school and college graduates!
 
Parents of High School and College Graduates: It’s that time of year again – the time when open houses and the anticipation of graduation takes hold. In celebration of our graduates, RRCYM likes to do something extra special by creating a booklet containing pictures of your graduate, a letter or prayer request from you to your son or daughter, and open house information. Each graduate will be allotted one page. Please take this opportunity to celebrate your graduate with us as a church!
 
Letters MUST be emailed to Laura Jolliffe by Sunday, May 26.
 
Please indicate in the letter your graduate’s full name, your names, where they are planning to go to school (or their future plans), what they are planning on majoring in, a message/prayer, and open house information (if open house info is something you want published). Don’t worry about designing the page, just send the photos and information to Laura for layout. Thank you!
