It was called The Great War. Today we know it as World War I, but at the time it was "The War to End All Wars." One hundred years ago today, in November of 1918--on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month--the armistice was signed which ended the conflict in Europe.
We will celebrate this event, and honor our Veterans in a musical program at 9:45 in the Sanctuary. Our Chancel Choir and Chancel Ringers will be joined by the McCallie Men's Ensemble and Men's Chorus (directed by James Harr).
There will NOT be an 8:30 worship service in the Sanctuary this Sunday.
You are invited to share mementos of the Veterans in your life. There will be tables set up in the Cloister. Please write the identifying information on the cards provided, and place your picture or object on the display table.
Our church is participating with other churches and organizations around the country in ringing the Bells of Peace at 11:00 a.m. If you wish to participate, download the Bells of Peace app on your cell phone. There is a countdown timer, and all bells will ring during the service!
