WORDS OF WELCOME PRELUDE.….………....................... “The Star-Spangled Banner”...............................................Pianist *PRESENTATION OF THE COLORS West Ashley High School Navy Jr. ROTC *PLEDGE TO THE AMERICAN FLAG *PLEDGE TO THE CHRISTIAN FLAG I pledge allegiance to the Christian flag and to the gospel for which it stands; One Savior, crucified, risen and coming again, with life eternal for all who believe. A TIME TO REMEMBER Pastor: Let us begin with a moment of remembrance. All: We remember fallen soldiers, and the sacrifice they made for the sake of others. Pastor: Let us begin with a moment of thanksgiving. All: We thank God for brave men and women that have given their lives so that we may worship without fear. Pastor: Let us begin with a moment of silence; for a moment is the least we can do for those that gave their eternity. KEEPING OF SILENCE All: God of every nation, as we remember those that gave their life for our sake, let us be stirred to action in their memory. We confess that we have not done all that is possible to promote peace and justice in our world. We have not loved our neighbors, let alone our enemies. Forgive us for failing to live up to your commandments. Empower us to work for your Kingdom in this world, and welcome us by your grace into your Kingdom in the next. Amen. (Written by Rev.
