Due to the pandemic, the “Back to School” program had been postponed until Nov. 5, 2022, when seven graduates were acknowledged.
Graduates from middle school, high school and professional programs at the University of Southern California, Michigan State University and the Paul Mitchell School of Cosmetology were celebrated.
The congregation recited litanies invoking God’s blessings while Pastor Keynel Cadet and Elder Gary Edwards offered prayers for each group. Eleven students along with four school personnel, including Principal Lynnette Jefferson from Peterson-Warren Academy, were recognized.
Cadet said he is pleased that the church “recognizes our graduates and students and encourages them to inspire other young people to follow them in the path of Ecclesiastes 7:12, as they follow Christ.”
Graduates received gift bags of school supplies and hopefully the assurance that their church family loves them and will be praying for them.
