Memorial Day weekend down here usually means about half a congregation. People are so busy that if they can take some time and get away, they will. But today we really had a good crowd even with several families out of town.
Prior to the service we played a clip honoring the sacrifices of America's veterans and I closed with a brief introduction to what Memorial day means. Then we began our worship.
All the Earth Will Sing Your Praises
Blessed Be your Name
Nothing But the Blood
Jesus Paid It All
I used a clip at the end that was the story of "Team Hoyt." Dick and Rick Hoyt are an amazing story of courage and love.
