The East Texas Baptist – Longview District Association recently held a Baccalaureate Service for their graduates. The purpose of this service was to embrace the District’s young people. It also served as an encouragement for the graduates to step out in faith, keep God first and He will direct their paths.

Furthermore, it was an opportunity to demonstrate the confidence they have placed on them. Their church and immediate families are praying for God to bless and keep them. In addition, graduates heard words of wisdom from several area pastors and elders. The service took place at Red Oak Baptist Church where Homer Rockmore Sr., is pastor.
