Liberty to Serve

We had a tremendous Veterans Day Celebration at Tabernacle Baptist Church. Before going on the air (we broadcast our services live over the radio), we played the Armed Services Medley through our sound system. It was a stirring rendition of each of the armed service’s hymns. I then took the microphone and explained the history of Veterans Day. The 11th hour of the 11th day of the 11th month was the signing of the Armistice to end World War I. We recognized each of our men who have served in our armed forces. We had a couple of tables set up in the back of the auditorium with memorabilia and photos of the different servicemen. Many in the congregation wore patriotic outfits. We sang the national anthem and then shared in a responsive reading. We paused for a moment of silence and then taps was played by one of our brass instruments. We then sang America the Beautiful. Following the service we had a little gift for each of our soldiers. The Lord gave us a sweet service.

I preached on Galatians 5:13-15, a message entitled Freedom to Serve. You can listen to this message by clicking here or visit our sermons page.
