As part of this service, we'll be hearing credo presentations from our three CoA members—Liam Yeung, Delaney McCoy and Cole Aulisio. Their mentors—Gary Nemes, Irene Mor-ley, and Jeff Martin—will share their observations on this new ninth-grade program and their experiences mentoring these young people. Some other surprises are in the pipeline for this celebration service and, of course, the traditional cake afterward.
