Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

we raise to them

“I have never been able to think
of the day as one of mourning;
I have never quite been able to feel
that half-masted flags were appropriate
on Decoration [Memorial] Day.
I have rather felt that the flag
should be at the peak,
because those whose dying we commemorate
rejoiced in seeing it where their valor placed it.
We honor them in a joyous, thankful,
triumphant commemoration of what they did.”
- Benjamin Harrison

“Spirit, that made those heroes dare
To die, and leave their children free,
Bid Time and Nature gently spare
The shaft we raise to them and thee.”
- Ralph Waldo Emerson
