Psalm 78:4 “We will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the Lord, His power, and the wonders He has done.”

 

In honor of Memorial Day, and in honor of all of those individuals who serve our Country, On Sunday, May 20th, at both the 8:30 and 11AM Service, our Youth Choirs will be taking us on a journey through American history with “A Salute to America.”  This is a wonderfully patriotic musical that will bring life to many individuals of America's past.    These are people like George Washington, and Abraham Lincoln…among others.  We know who they were.  They built our Nations foundation through Biblical Principals.  They lived their lives honoring God, and they were not afraid to include Him in everything they did.  They knew that without His help, they would not succeed.

  

2 Chronicles 7:14…If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven, and I will forgive their sin and will heal their land.

 

Our children will bring these characters to life, as they bring honor and glory to the creator of the nation that we call “One nation under God.”  They will sing some pretty famous songs, and at times, you will be invited to sing along.  This will be an enjoyable time for all, and it will give us an opportunity to do something very important.  We have a wonderfully blessed plan to include each and every one of you in this time of remembering.  Traditionally, Memorial Day is a day to honor those who’ve lost their lives in service to our country.  I would like to include those who serve us in so many ways now, in order to bring the reality of it to our children. Thank you for understanding.     

 

***As a Grand Finale, we will be saluting all of the individuals within our congregation, as well as guests, who serve our community, our country, and our people.  This includes Military, Police, Corrections, Fire Fighters, EMS, Pilots, Nurses…etc. This will also include those folks who have retired from these positions.   If you wear a uniform, WE WANT YOU!!!  If it still fits, and you’d like to wear it, we would be honored.  If not, then that’s OK too!  It will be a time of joy and fellowship for our church…a time for remembering…a time for encouraging…a time for loving each other in Christ.  COME, and be Blessed!

One closing thought…You would be surprised at how many of our children don’t know enough about the Godly principals on which this nation was founded!  We need to take responsibility for some of their education, for without it, we are lost.  Why?  Because any education that does not include God does not bring us or our children to a place we would want to call home.  Where God is not allowed, strife and heartache abound.  Our beloved America stands strong in Him, and without Him, where is the blessing?  I believe that God meant this country to be one where His Gospel Message of Salvation would be preached by a people who were free to preach it anytime and anywhere.  Wasn’t that why the Pilgrims came here to begin with?  Let us stand united with our children as we equip them with an education unmatched by any other…an education that comes from knowing God’s word and His promises.
