Calvary Celebrates 51 New Graduates

Weekly Portraits of Calvary Life

On Saturday, May 5, 51 graduates moved their tassels and took the next step down the path God has laid out for them.  The Commencement Exercises took place at Graceway, and many family and friends joined us in celebrating the Class of 2018.

Just a few of the 2018 graduates: (l to r) Toyosi Ishola, Cameron Rucker, Joel Lyons, Koku Akakpo, Akpene Akakpo, Andrew Busakula, and Samuel Her

Commencement Address

Dr. Paul Benware gave the address to the graduates.  He drew our attention to the four mirages that King Solomon found to be meaningless:  knowledge, pleasure, material things, and labor.  Dr. Benware pointed out that these are still very much a problem today.  However, when God is in the right place in your life, these other things make sense.  He encouraged the graduates to devote themselves to Jesus Christ.  He also reminded them that God doesn’t require us to be famous, but He does insist that we be faithful.
