New Hope UCC: Our Family of Faith

Embracing All in Christ’s Love

“Memorial Day”

This Sunday is a special day in which our entire country gathers to honor and remember those who have died defending our country…Memorial Day is a day of thinking, meditating and praying for the souls of the dead and the family members still grieving. It is also, in a broader sense, a day to honor and remember those in our families who have passed on during the last year.

We will carefully look at how Psalm 91 can comfort individuals, families, and nations as we realize the sovereignty of God who reigns over both Heaven and Earth…the Holy Creator who wishes for us the end of death by violent means and peace (shalom) in personal lives as well throughout the Cosmos.

If you are out of town or are unable to attend..please open your Bible and read Psalm 91..then offer a silent prayer for those who seek world peace and for the families of those who have lost loved ones in that pursuit and in their personal lives.

Also, there will be Memorial Day Service sponsored by the American Legion at the church cemetery at 8:30 a.m. Monday.

In Prayerful Reflection…
Rev. Jim
