Graduation is right around the corner and we know everyone is excited! June 4, 2017 will be Graduation Sunday at First Cary. We are happy to invite you to participate in this year’s worship, reception, and scholarship awards.
High school, technical program, community college and university graduates are asked to wear their cap and gown to worship on Sunday, June 4, 2017 at the 11:05am Sanctuary worship service. Graduates will meet and line up at the Academy Street entrance to the sanctuary at 10:45am. In case of rain please meet outside the office lobby under the covered walkway. We will process into the sanctuary during the prelude.
This year we will have an afternoon reception for all graduates on Sunday, June 4, from 3:00 – 5:00pm in the Fellowship Hall. There will be snacks in the First Cup room and tables set up for fellowship. During this time we will present the graduates with scholarships.
To assist us in planning, please click here to RSVP for the worship service and/or the reception that day.
The scholarship applications will be posted on the youth page of the church web site by April 1, 2017. All the instructions and information for submitting applications will be posted at that time.
Graduates are asked to send a wallet-size self-portrait to Karen Schreiner by Sunday, May 21, 2017. This picture is for display and needs to be a hard copy, not an electronic copy. Please include high school, college/future/work plans as well. Graduates are welcome to send electronic copies of snap shots of service and fellowship events at First Cary to be compiled into a slide show, which will play during our reception in the Fellowship Hall. These are also due to Karen Schreiner by Sunday, May 21, 2017.
Many blessings to you as you enter the ‘home stretch’ of the school year. We look forward to worshiping with you and celebrating your achievement.
Grace and Peace,
Pastor Emily Mills, Corey Dao-Forrester, and Karen Schreiner
