The graduating class consisted of 18 students, most of whom attended Mission Point for over three years.
The children, led by music teacher Sally Bradshaw, celebrated their graduation by singing, playing bells and voicing what they would like to be when they grow up. The school has many aspiring doctors, moms, a cheerleader, professional baseball player and a chef, to name a few.
Parents, grandparents, relatives, friends and other classes attended the ceremony. During the ceremony, “Gerbert” the puppet told everyone a Bible story about how Jesus loves the children. The puppet ministry is led by Karen Rice and is part of the weekly chapel service.
“MPCA is very proud of the accomplishments of these students,” said academy director Karen Carter. “They have worked diligently throughout the year and are socially, spiritually and academically prepared to move on to kindergarten.”
The children also participated in a ministry project throughout the year by bringing an offering each week in chapel to benefit the church’s orphanage in Peru. The students collected enough money to provide a guitar and other musical instruments for the ministry.
