Commencement 2009 on Saturday, May 9, 2009 with Vincent Griffis

(L-R) Suzanne (Sisson) Griffis, Dr. Dino Pedrone, Vincent Griffis (Homecoming 2008)

This Saturday will be the Commencement for the class of 2009. Reverend Vincent Griffis (class 1967) will be the Commencement speaker this year in the Robb Activity Center. Vince is the son of the late Dr. Paul Griffis (class 1932). If you are in the area come by the college and wish the class of 2009 God speed as they head out into the world. Remember the words of our Alma Mater:

On the banks of Susquehanna
In God's chosen place
Stands our dear old Davis College,
Subject of His grace.

Davis College, how we love you
And your teachers dear.
We will all pray daily for you
Though we're far from here.

[to be sung by graduating class]
We must part now, for He calls us
To a wider field;
And though we are loath to leave you,
For His sake, we yield.

Davis College, don't forget us
As we go our way;
And while we are in His service,
For us, won't you pray?
Pray that the Graduating class will be in the service of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Remember them and all the past students, current students, and future students of the college that their lives would be testimonies of what Christ has done and what He is doing in their lives.

As 2 Timothy 4.2 says, "Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching." May that be my prayer for the class of 2009 that each one of them is ready to use the Word for God's Kingdom. Whether by preaching, teaching, or just living life.
