Memorial Day marks the beginning of summer for many people. It’s the weekend we get a day off work, the pools open, and the BBQs get fired up. But if we step back for just a few minutes and take some time to reflect on what Memorial Day is all about, then I think our weekend will be even more meaningful. So as we set off to enjoy this weekend, let’s start it off by reflecting on the men and women who served our country and paid the ultimate price to help secure the freedoms that we will celebrate this weekend and beyond. It’s ok to take a minute in your service this weekend to remember them as well. I’ve curated a few pieces of media for you that you could use this weekend for service.
We Will Remember by Hyper Pixels Media
To many, Memorial Day is the official kick-off of Summer or just a vacation day from work. Use this powerful Memorial Day Mini-Movie to remind your church that it’s a day for remembering the amazing men and women who gave their lives to protect our freedom. John 15:13 states, “Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” On the Sunday before Memorial Day, honor and remember their great sacrifice.
Let Us Never Forget by Motion Worship
This poignant short film features footage of rows upon rows of graves in a military cemetery, with voiceover about the sacrifices made by soldiers to protect those they love.
Memorial Day Peace by Centerline New Media
This Memorial Day, may we remember those in our military who paid a price we wish that none should pay. We ask God to give peace to those who have felt the pain of this loss, and also to stir up a passion for peace in the hearts of leaders of every nation.
