Thirty – Seventh (37th!) Senior Luncheon
The tradition of hosting the graduating seniors of Hemphill High School continues. Since 1980 the Methodist Women have provided a luncheon following the last graduation practice each May. This year the luncheon was held on Wednesday, May 24. It is a joy to interact with the seniors as they enjoy a last occasion to eat together before they embark on individual future plans.
This year the congregation was invited to participate in congratulating these young people by writing a note or letter to someone selected at random. The cards were collected and with the gift of an FUMC writing pen were presented to each senior at the luncheon individually with good wishes and some hugs. Thanks to all in the congregation who took part in this effort to identify personally with a senior.
MW President Carole Teagle and Pastor Grant welcomed the class and Kazmine Godwin, one of the scholarship recipients and frequent attendee of FUMC gave the blessing before the meal.
The 74 seniors, their sponsors, senior teachers, and administrators enjoyed a bounty of food, beverages, and desserts. Such is the tradition as several teachers recalled their Senior Luncheon when they graduated from HISD.
Some of the many women who worked to decorate the fellowship hall and prepare the food worked quickly as students arrived. The 2017 senior class was extremely respectful and appreciative of the collective efforts of First United Methodist Church.
In the United Methodist calendar, May is designated as Christian Home Month. Discipleship Ministries offers many resources to help families on their spiritual journeys, including this prayer for families written by MaryJane Pierce Norton.

Gracious God, who created all of humankind and showed to us the importance of relationships with one another,
we commend to your care all the families of our community and our world.
We pray that each home may be a home where love is felt.
We pray for homes where, instead of love, hurt, abuse, and suffering abide.
We pray for children, youth, and adults, recognizing the importance of and the gift of every age as we grow.
May your grace be present to all.
Grant us wisdom to know where there is no love, courage to act out of love for others, and peace to trust in your grace.
Help us to live so that the commandments of love for you and love for others are shown in the ways we live together.
