Memorial Day Parade

On May 30th, under blue skies and the perfect summer breeze, First United Methodist Church joined the Elmhurst Memorial Day parade honoring our fallen heroes.  Members of our Bell Choir rode in the back of Bart the truck while playing My Country ‘Tis of Thee for an appreciative crowd.  Our theme, Remembering the Faithful, reminded us of the true measure of devotion these men and women displayed in fighting and dying for our country’s freedom.  Other members of the church walked alongside the truck waving to the crowd, connecting with neighbors and friends, and taking time to thank the veterans who attended the parade.  God bless all those who serve in our military.
