Yard Signs with church name

Tri-fold boards of pictures/etc. to display. Photos, soccer ball, Harry Potter stuff, whatever fits their personality.

Host a luncheon, dinner or dessert celebration.  Plan time for a slide show, sharing stories, affirmations and prayer.

Have volunteers deliver care packages to each graduate’s house.

Contigo water bottle, stuffed with treats. Have a member cricut the name of the church and the students name for the bottle. Why “Contigo” you ask? It is Spanish for “To Go With”. Remind them that no matter where they go, God goes with them as do our prayers and love from the congregation that has watched them grow and continue to grow.
