2008 Baccalaureate Service

The Millen Make-a-Difference Ministry invites the community to the 2008 Baccalaureate Service. Family, friends, pastors, faculty and school administrators are invited to attend this inspiring service honoring the Class of 2008. The service will be held 4 p.m. Sunday, May 18, at the new Jenkins County High School (JCHS) gymnasium.

This service is an opportunity for the graduates to draw upon spiritual strength for new stages of their lives, according to organizers. Christine Stripling and the Rev. David Searles, minister to students at Millen Baptist Church, will share encouragement and challenges to the graduates.

Graduates who have not signed up are asked to do so as soon as possible, so organizers will have an accurate count of seniors participating in the service. Seniors are asked to be at the JCHS gymnasium at 3:15 p.m., with cap and gown. Instructions for the service will be given before the service; no advance practice will be necessary.

For more information, contact the Millen Baptist Church office at 982-5411.
