Placing of American Flags in GPC Cemetery

On Friday, May 24th, volunteers from the cemetery committee and congregation gathered to place American flags on the graves of all veterans buried in our cemetery for the observance of Memorial Day.  We use the records, locate the grave sites, and place the flags.  When we finished we circled up and shared a prayer of thanksgiving.  It was humbling to look across the site and see so many flags, so many from the church's past have served in the military at one time or another dating back to the American Revolution.  Thank you, veterans, past and present.
