Congratulations High School Graduates

Class of 2019

I keep my eyes always on the Lord, with him at my right hand, I will not be shaken…You make known to me the path of life;

ELDER’S CORNER

1 Peter 5:2 “Be Shepherds of God’s flock that is under your care…”

This is a promise of God: ‘I will give you a new heart with new and right desires, and I will put a new spirit in you. I will take out y our stony heart of sin and give you a new obedient heart.’” Ezekiel 36:26 (NLT)

God never fails in his promises. But it is never against our wishes. Let’s be open and present and obedient in our walk with him.

Dan Bryant
