Doors to the Worship Center will open for guest seating at 9:00 a.m. In order to better enjoy the morning, plan ahead and be early. Seats that are being saved for late arriving guests must be released by 9:45 a.m. to accommodate other guests who are present and waiting for a seat. Be sure to communicate this to all family and friends who will be attending the Commencement ceremony.
