JAM 6th grade graduation

It's hard to believe that next fall Brenna will no longer be a part of our children's ministries and will be moving up to the Jr. High group.

Sunday was "graduation" day for all of the 6th graders at church. Our JAM/Children's Ministries is amazing and we all had a great time together. We were served a delicious lasagna lunch with garlic bread and caesar salad. For dessert, we had a variety of cheesecakes to choose from.

After lunch, we all moved up to the JAM room for a "graduation ceremony". 
Pastor Ken shared a little bit about what they had been learning this past year. He had also asked one of our seniors to come and share with the kids. Bryer Young did a great job talking with the kids and had some great advice for them.
Pastor Ken paired each of the 6th graders up with a buddy and had them share the meaning of a verse.Brenna was paired up with a very sweet girl Emma Clarke. Emma is a part of a family from our Christ Group and she and Brenna have become great buddies!
Our time together ended with each of the 6th graders entering the room individually and being presented with a Bible from Pastor Ken and Tammy.
And before everyone left, we got a picture of all of the 6th graders there. We were missing was sick and another was gone with their family for the weekend.
It was a very special afternoon and I am excited to see what God has planned for each one of these kids.

**I'm not sure why some of these pictures look a little grainy. Our camera is newer and I'm still learning all of the settings.
