Class 2022

Greeting church family! Pictured above are students who went to summer camp, attended all-nighters, served at VBS and journeyed in life groups. Pictured above are a brave, creative, diverse, beautiful group of students. Pictured above are Sunday school volunteers, worship leaders, missionaries, community activists, greeters, disciples, and world changers. Pictured above are students made in the image of God.

Let’s continue to make Lake Avenue Church a safe and caring place for this class and all the other classes to come. Blessings, grace, and love to the class of 2022. Congratulations!
