USA: Bay Area Family Church Celebrates Il Shim Graduates
FFWPU USA: Young people in the Bay Area Family Church recently gathered to celebrate their Il Shim Graduation Ceremony. Il Shim is designed as a course for young people, traditionally in their teens, to explore their faith and to commit to the ideals of abstinence before marriage and fidelity within.
This year, the Bay Area had about 70 participants and staff in the program, including guest students who joined friends with their parents’ permission.
Guest speakers included participants who had previously gone through and graduated from the program. These students shared how Il Shim impacted their life choices and what inspires them to continue to commit to a God-centered life.
