Honoring Our Veterans and Military Personnel
Sunday, November 15
10:15 am – 12:15 pm | Welcome Center
I recently had the honor of officiating the memorial service for BV Shaw, father of church member Trish Shaw, at the DFW National Cemetery. BV was a courageous civilian flight instructor for the Army Air Corps in the early years of WWII. He loved God, taught Sunday School and inspired in his children, Bryan and Trish, a love for flying leading to their flight careers. Prior to the service, I walked around rows and rows of numerous graves of men and women who served in Iraq and Afghanistan, in Vietnam, in Korea and in WWII. It was humbling to see fresh graves of those just returning from the Mideast — often young men and women in their 20’s and early 30’s. We continue to pray for peace. Our Lay Ministry Committee and congregation will honor all veterans and active military personnel on this special Sunday following Veterans Day with a special gift at a table just outside the Welcome Center. We appreciate this opportunity to honor you all!
