A few Sundays ago I was visiting the church of which a couple of our alumna are members. I attended the second worship service. Someone passed me the attendance pad. As I was about to write my name, I looked a few lines above and realized that one of our alumni, class of 2007, had attended the earlier service. In addition, another one, class of 2011 had been helping in the nursery during the earlier service.
It's always a joy to see and hear about the witness of our alumni. Not so long before that visit, I'd had the privilege of hearing another alumna accompany a service. Music is so important in worship.
I count these as gifts, to know that so many of our alumni are still pressing on and serving the Lord, witnessing faithfully to how God has called them. We will continue to hold them up in our prayers.
Loving God, Loving Neighbor
