Week of November 10, 2019
Veterans Day, originally called Armistice Day in 1918 when Americans commemorated the end of World War I, understood then to be “the war to end all wars.”  We honor those who have endangered their lives to protect their country. We grieve with those who lost loved ones in service, and rejoice with those who return home safely. We remember men & women who are now in places of danger in service to their country, and pray for their deliverance. We pray for the day when there will be no more war, and with these thoughts in mind, we come to worship God. 

Veterans Day Quiz
