The communal graduation verse that the students chose to direct and focus their celebration comes from Colossians 3:23-24. What a great choice, given all the work they’ve done at school and at home in their years at Woodstock Christian School. They have lived and grown through the disruptions and unpredictability of these last two years and are well aware that life can be complicated. As these hardworking students leave the care and learning at WCS that is familiar and move on to the next stage of their school and life journey, the verse they have chosen will be a guide for them. They know and believe that God is present and that it is for Him and through Him that we live and work and have our being. Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Congratulations, WCS Class of 2021! Hold onto the hope and joy and peace that only God provides.
We have known some of our eighth grade students for 10 years, and some for just a few years. Staff and students at WCS have been blessed by our bold, creative, athletic, sincere, godly, caring, funny and awesome (and more!) grads. We look forward to celebrating you at the graduation ceremony on Tuesday. We will miss you as you leave, but we also know it’s time for you to move on to new challenges. May you continue to grow in wisdom and understanding. Know that God continues to provide grace and love for you in abundance. He will continue to guide and bless you. Fare well & God bless you, Abigail, Alex, Arianna, Conner, Danika, Duncan, Eden, Erin, Esther, Evyn, Gabriel, Hailey, Jeremy, Judah, Julia, Julie, Katelyn, Naomi, and Paul.Blessings to each of you,
