The picture represents each graduate, excited to graduate,
so they can step out on the path the Lord has planned for them.
Their ultimate goal is love, as the banner over them represents;
to love God and to love their neighbor as themselves, for God so loved them.
The rays represent God's glory and sovereignty over all creation.
May every individual find God's love and salvation reigning over them.

CHEM's Vision and Purpose for the Graduation Ceremonies
The purpose of coming together for these graduation ceremonies is
for thanksgiving and celebration!
It is a time to publicly thank the Lord for the privilege He has granted us to home educate our children and to thank Him for the mercy and grace He has poured out on us to accomplish this incredible task.
It is a time to honor our children for the sacrifices they have made to take a different path in pursuing their education and applaud them for their dedication in
reaching this goal.
It is a time for parents to confirm and bless their children as they take their next step into adulthood.
It is a time of honoring the parents and celebrating the fruits of their labor.
It is a time for the graduates to honor and thank their parents for their unselfish sacrifice on their behalf.
It is a time of encouragement to the home school community as they share in the hope and joy of this special occasion.
It is a time of ministry to our families and friends as we give testimony of the saving grace of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
It is a time of great rejoicing!
