Our church observes a special annual tradition. I gather it goes waay back, ceased for a time, but our Pastor reinstated it. I've never seen it done anywhere else. The first Sunday in June is set aside as Graduation Sunday - a special service geared to the high school grads - and interactive for them as well in the sense that they wear their grad garb, proceed down the aisle to the front, our pastor briefly interviews each one about their plans for the future before presenting them with a gift and having them sit in the front row. Pastor prepares a special message "just for them" (funny tho' how timely it always seems to be for me!) at such a time as this when they are planning their futures and making some big decisions.
This year we did something new/different as well. The graduates' Bibles were laid out on a table in the foyer for our church family to underline and sign verses/passages they had chosen to encourage each grad. They were invited to write a short note in the margin as well. Participation was great! And each grad ended up with such a treasure in the end ... a beautiful gift (so much encouragement) from their church family wrapped within the covers of their very own Bibles! :)
