The service will take place at 10:00 a.m., prior to the 10:30 service of worship. Please invite your friends and neighbors, bring some wildflowers or flowers from your garden (if you have any), and join us.

Memorial Day

Memorial Day was originally established on May 5, 1868, as a federal holiday “... for the purpose of strewing with flowers or otherwise decorating the graves of comrades who died in defense of their country during [the Civil War] and whose bodies now lie in almost every city, village and hamlet church-yard in the land.” (General Orders No. 11, Washington D.C., General John Logan of the Grand Army of the Republic). By the 20th century, Memorial Day had been expanded to include all Americans who died while in the military service. On Sunday, May 26th, we will honor their sacrifice with a brief (~15 minute) service of prayer in our cemetery to remember those who died serving our country and protecting our freedom. The service will take place at 10:00 a.m., prior to the 10:30 service of worship. Please invite your friends and neighbors, bring some wildflowers or flowers from your garden (if you have any), and join us.
