This Sunday, May 30, be sure to stop by the courtyard to take a moment to tie a knot and say a prayer for some of our graduating senior class.
Graduate quilts are a beautiful RB Community tradition that we are thankful has continued through this season and are grateful for the high school parents who have championed its cause. Our graduating seniors will have an in-person prayer quilt presentation in services on June 13th, and we hope you can join us then. Thank you for participating in our Senior Quilts ministry.
For this year's graduates, they will forever associate their senior year with COVID-19: no homecoming football game, no first day of school excitement, no prom. There has been a sense of loss, as their senior year was impacted by navigating social isolation, constant CDC guideline updates, and distance learning. Many students who enjoy participating in sports, music, school plays, robotics, and various other activities saw complete shutdowns of the parts of school they loved the most.
Fortunately, as their year-end is rapidly approaching, many schools have announced they will have in-person graduation ceremonies. This news has students thrilled as they finish their high school career with something that has always been special and a very normal part of graduating in a year far from ordinary.
Despite a challenging year, our graduating seniors are strong, gifted, and hopeful for the future. So keep them in your prayers over the coming weeks as they prepare for graduation and bright futures to come.
