Melissa Dennison sang two beautiful solos. After the congregation sang patriotic songs, they expressed their thanks to the veterans in various ways.

Then a flag raising ceremony was held outside. After a new flag was raised, the congregation recited the Pledge of Allegiance led by Guy Boggs. Ed Barney led the prayer of dedication and dismissal.

Following the service, the church enjoyed a Veteran's Day-Thanksgiving dinner at the fellowship hall.
