The following article appeared in today’s Hi Desert Star. As a member of our local Pastors Fellowship, I have been honored to support and be part of this service the past few years.
Everyone is invited, and I encourage you to attend. This year, one of our own church families will be having a graduating senior. We are praying this will be a great opportunity to praise the Lord and honor our local graduates.
YUCCA VALLEY – Graduating seniors from Yucca Valley area high schools and their families are invited to attend a baccalaureate ceremony at 4 p.m. Sunday in the Yucca Valley High School multipurpose room.
Graduates should arrive by 3:45 p.m.
The event is sponsored by the Basin Wide Evangelical Ministerial Fellowship and organized by the 2010 Baccalaureate Committee.
The baccalaureate is a Christ-centered celebration to honor the graduating seniors and their hard work, commitment and accomplishments throughout their high school careers.
Dress is nice casual and a dessert reception will follow the ceremony.
Music will be provided by a youth worship team consisting of several graduating seniors.
The main speaker will be 1977 Yucca Valley High School graduate and athletic star Shawn Nelson. Currently city manager for Temecula, Nelson will focus his message around two main points: live a significant life and don’t lose heart.
The Yucca Valley High School New Life Club, Yucca Valley EV Free Church, Hi-Desert Star, Copper Mountain Broadcasting and Z107.7 have provided support for the event.
