Congratulations 2020 Graduates!
We are so proud of you!

Shelby Rose Rubino, daughter of Mike & Beverly Rubino, is graduating from Mount St Mary High School in Oklahoma City. Shelby was a great student, excelling in art and volleyball. Her art was selected as a piece to be displayed at Will Rogers World Airport. She was selected for the great honor of participating in Future City during high school. Students selected, design and build a detailed model of a future city. The city planning takes months to complete and students must dedicate many hours to this project. Shelby also served on several mission trips throughout high school, including one to the Dominican Republic and another to Africa. Shelby plans to attend UCO this fall and major in math and computer science. She plans to work part time through college. As a lifelong member of FCC MWC, we have been blessed to watch Shelby grow up. Congratulations Shelby, we are so proud of you! You certainly have a bright future ahead.


Zachary Daniel Walters, son of Eric & Wendy Walters, is graduating from Carl Albert High School in Midwest City. Zac was awarded a scholarship to go on the International Affairs Seminar to DC and NYC. Due to the pandemic, this trip was cancelled but we are so proud of Zac for being selected for this honor! Zac has been involved in church camps and mission work throughout high school and feels strongly about supporting those in need. Zac was awarded a full ride scholarship to Rose State College. This fall he will begin his journey toward an Associates degree in radiation technology.  After graduating from Rose State, Zac plans to continue his education in a physical therapy program, in hopes of becoming a Sports Medicine Physical Therapist. Zac is currently employed part time and plans to continue working through college. Zac’s involvement at this church has been a blessing to our congregation! Zachary Daniel Walters, we are so proud of you and we look forward to seeing where God will lead you!
