Memorial Day Weekend

We Will Remember

To many, Memorial Day is the official kick-off of Summer or just a vacation day from work. We remember that it’s a day for remembering the amazing men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedom. John 15:13 states, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” On this Sunday before Memorial Day, we honor and remember their great sacrifice.

Memorial Day: 13 Folds

The ceremonial 13 folds of a flag helps us honor those who have given their lives in service to our country. We remember fallen soldiers who have made the ultimate sacrifice, and we remember the scriptures; “Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted.” We pray, “God be near those who need comfort and draw close to those who mourn. Amen”


This is a message to all of those who are graduating and entering into the next season of life. We love you, we are proud of you, we believe in you, and we are praying for you.

“The LORD himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” –Deuteronomy 31:8
