Vets to be honored at Rock Church campusesOctober 31. 2012 11:58PM
Rock Church Ministries has three locations where services will be held:
-- The Rockingham Church, 90 Newton Road (Route 108) Plaistow. Service times are 9:45 a.m. and 11 a.m.
-- St. Matthews United Methodist Church, Route 121A in the center of Sandown. Service time is 8:45 a.m.
-- Rock Church Amesbury, 146 Main St., Amesbury, Mass., services times are 9:30 a.m. and 11 a.m.
All veterans of any branch of our armed forces are invited to join in this special service. Also welcome are any family members of deployed service men and women.
The service will include a special time of prayer for all of those who have served the nation, as well as those actively servicing. A slideshow will be played in honor of the community's veterans, and all veterans present will be acknowledged in an expression of appreciation for their service to the nation.
Of course, the services are open to everyone, everywhere (even online) who wishes to join us in prayer for, and honor of, the service men and women. "Now more than ever," said Pastor Steve Murray "we need to be in prayer for our active military, and expressing our appreciation for all who have serviced before them. We must never forget that the freedoms that we are so blessed to enjoy have been protected by the sacrificial service of brave men and women before us."
On site and online (honoring-our-heroes.com) the community can view the Field of Flags, where approximately 6,600 flags are displayed in the field next to the Rockingham Church Plaistow. The flags will be displayed alphabetically, with the name of a serviceman or woman who died in the War on Terror. This display will be open to the public to walk, reflect upon and pray from now until Dec. 1.
