Meaningful Sunday service honoring veterans on Memorial Day Weekend. For us it is a solemn day to honor the fallen. We take this day not to shop or celebrate but to be mindful of veterans and the sacrifices of veterans and their families.
It is easy to get swept away by the ways of the world. In the Bible, Paul encourages us to renew our hearts to serve God. Our lovely organist Ailene (pictured below) is so talented. Her music is transforming because it helps us to focus and renew our hearts and minds.
Today is a beautiful day to Renew Your Mind Before God.
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1
This passage tells us that we should not conform to the world, and that instead, we should serve God’s works and be transformed by the renewal of our minds.
Today is a beautiful day for transformation of the mind.
On the subject of music and transforming church experiences…
Our congregation was blessed today to experience a new sound an media system. These additions to the sanctuary were made possible by a generous gift from the estate of Polly Bounds.
