The Sunday Message

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord, the people he chose for his inheritance.Psalm 33:12 (NIV)

Today (June 14) is Flag Day. This is a great day to think about the freedoms we have in the United States and to think about all the blessings we have as Americans. I will be proudly flying my flag today and I hope you will, too. Click HERE to learn more about Flag Day.

I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Have a great week!
