Calling all graduates! Can you believe it’s already April!? The school year is so close to being over, and I am sure this thought brings feelings of both relief and excitement to you. We at Aiken’s First Baptist Church believe each and every one of us are called to be a compelling force for good in the world. We believe that a community of people is at its best when it serves, sacrifices, and loves caring for the things God cares about. We believe we were each created to live for something larger than ourselves. And we believe in you. Whatever it may be God has called you to in this next season, we want to congratulate you on your graduation. Graduation is a transition from one point in life to another, and this transition deserves celebrating!   

For our High School Graduates, to celebrate your graduation, May 19 will be Graduate Recognition Sunday!  We would love to recognize you and present you with a gift in worship on that Sunday morning at 11 am. It is our hope that this day will be a very special day for you as well as those who love and support you.    

For ALL 2024 Graduates (high school, college, etc.), this is what I need from you as soon as possible. To, please send the following: 

  • Your name 
  • Your picture 
  • Where you are graduating from 
  • Your plans for the fall (high school grads)/Degree received (college grads)

As you come to the end of your school year, I celebrate with you for all your accomplishments thus far, and all you will continue to do. Be proud of what you have done and who you are. We can’t wait to see what you do next!   

Grace and Peace,
