J.A.M. Christian Daycare will host a pre-K graduation on June 13 for nine students moving on to kindergarten.
Three of the students started at J.A.M. as infants and continued through our program until entering school.
Each year Pastor Dan presents each child with a Bible storybook on behalf of the church and offers a prayer of blessing for them. A copy of the letter he includes with the Bible is at right.
Several of our past graduates have returned later to mention reading their Bible and keeping it in a special place. Children also receive a
graduation medal to commemorate their time at J.A.M.
Family and friends attend our graduation program, making it a
special time for our community.
Below is the text of the letter each graduate receives with his or her Bible:
It has been so much fun having you a part of J.A.M. Christian Daycare. I have loved watching you grow and learning about what is special and important to you. When you came into my office to get a prize out of the prize box, it was a special part of my day. As your class was moving around daycare, you would stop to talk with me, and that made me smile.
I am going to miss seeing you every day as you take this big step to kindergarten. Everyone at J.A.M. Daycare and First Baptist Church is so proud of all the hard work you have done, and we are excited to see what God is going to do in your life in the future.
The First Baptist Church family wanted to give you this gift as you leave J.A.M. and head off to kindergarten. This is the Bible I used with my family when my two children were little. We would read the stories together and learn about how God is alive and working in our world. I hope you enjoy it as much as our family did.
You will be in our thoughts and prayers as you head off to kindergarten. Thank you for being such a great friend!
