St. John's Celebrates Graduates May 21

Dear St. John’s Class of 2017 graduates and families,

St. John’s Lutheran Church in Norfolk looks forward to celebrating the academic achievements of this year’s high school & college graduates on Sunday, May 21, 2017, during our 8:30 AM worship service.

You are invited to join us for worship on this day so we can pray for you and celebrate with you. You may dress however you’d like: no cap or gown are necessary.

All graduates will come forward for a short prayer and blessing prior to the Scripture readings. If there are other “graduation highlights” which you would like to add to the worship service, please contact me, and we will discuss your ideas.

Following worship, at approximately 9:30 AM, St. John’s will host a special graduation coffee fellowship hour. Ann Austin has volunteered to help lead the efforts on decorating a special graduates’ table, and would appreciate any help you may want to add. Around 9:45 AM, we will ask you to share your plans for the summer and fall. Once again, we will extend our best wishes to you and your upcoming endeavors. By 10 AM, you may be on your way for the next events of the day.

We also invite you to share a “senior picture” with us if you have one. Simply email the picture to, or stop by St. John’s before May 17, where Midge will scan it and return it to you right away.

Your church family and friends congratulate you on all of your academic success!
