SUPPORT OUR TROOPS
Lead by: Joan & Howard Wilson
While we at Bethesda believe that we are citizens of heaven, we also gratefully acknowledge our American citizenship on earth. Both parts of our dual citizenship have been bought with a price and come with great responsibility. Therefore, one of our ministries is to support the troops that work so hard to keep us free.
Consider the words to the song, God Bless America. They remind us of all the men, women and families who have and continue to sacrifice for us:
While the storm clouds gather far across the sea,
Let us swear allegiance to a land that’s free,
Let us all be grateful for a land so fair,
As we raise our voices in a solemn prayer
“God Bless America,
Land that I love
Stand beside her, and guide her
Through the night with a light from above
From the mountains, to the prairies,
To the oceans, white with foam
God Bless America, my home sweet home”
Our mailings go out regularly to provide a sense of “home” to those serving far away from home. If you have a heart for doing the same, then watch for the next mailing date in the bulletin, join in helping us, and receive the blessing of saying “thank you” and “God bless you” to our troops.
God bless all who continue to pray for our troops and support our mail program.
