Knox’s Baccalaureate Service is a worship service where we honor our graduating seniors, give praise and thanks to God for their gifts, and ask for God’s blessing as they go through this major life transition.

For Students:

Here are the three handouts from the Mandatory Meeting.

First, the organization we’re working with – Hammer and Nails – needs a release form from each person going on the trip. Please fill this out and return to Joan Tanck by Wed., May 24. Form is HERE.

Second, parents and students are expected to have read, understand, and follow the discipline procedure and what not to bring on Go & Serve.

Packing List & Emergency Contact 2017

Discipline Procedure G&S 2017

Continuing this year:  Cell Phones and Personal Audio:

  • Youth can bring cell phones on G&S and use them during specified times:
    • During the drive to and from Ohio (at adult leaders’ discretion)
    • During free time right before dinner
    • During free time before bed
  • Cell phones ARE NOT allowed on worksites or during evening activities.
  • Knox is NOT responsible for lost or stolen phones.
  • Cell phones that become problematic will be confiscated and returned at the conclusion of the trip.
  • This is a trial run that will determine our cell phones rules for future Go & Serves. So, please follow the rules and be respectful.

For All Adults going on Go & Serve:

  1. Complete Driver Information Form by Wed, May 24 – you can do download the form here OR there are copies in the workroom.  We also need a copy of your drivers license and insurance on one page please.  You can download an app like TinyScan and use your smartphone OR you can make copies at the church.  Please do this by Wed, May 24.  Thank you.
  2. Complete Safe Haven Training (You must renew this every three years. If you went through Safe Haven Training before June 17, 2014 – you are good to go.) Check with Joan Tanck if you are unsure if you need training or not. Next training: Sunday June 4 at 11:45 am.

Those attending Go & Serve 2017 are expected to attend one of the services (both if possible) this Sunday. We’ll sit together in the far right pew. Wear a previous Go & Serve shirt or a Confirmation shirt. Let me know if you cannot make it. See you Sunday!
