Do you ever have trouble remembering things? If you’re not sure, the answer is probably “yes.” This weekend (Sunday, 5/28, at 9:30am) we’ll be celebrating Memorial Day, a national Day of Remembrance for those who have lost their lives in service to our country. These men and women have given the ultimate gift, their life, that we might have freedom. Even the freedom to gather together today in worship is freedom that many Christians around the world do not enjoy. As Americans, it is good to have days like Memorial Day to remind us to be thankful and to express gratitude to those who have served and are serving our country, and to their parents, children, and spouses.
We’ll also be looking at Joshua 4 in our memorial service, The Lesson of the Stones, sharing communion and remembering what God has done for us. We think it will be a moving experience and the beginning of a lasting memorial to what God has done in us who call ourselves 970 Church. Make sure to make this service part of your holiday plans.
