This Sunday marks 10 years since the 9/11 terrorist attacks and churches have been finding creative ways to commemorate this anniversary:
- More than 500 church leaders from around the nation will take to street corners on Sunday morning holding cardboard signs with messages of hope.
- Calvary Baptist Church in Clearwater, Fla., is renting out the Bright House Field (baseball stadium) for “A Day To Remember: Celebrating Heroes & Hope.” It’s even rumored that a local serviceman will parachute into the open air stadium from a helicopter to kick off the whole thing.
- Another church is part of a city-wide event inter-faith event with a local rabbi and iman, along with other Christian churches. The purpose is to show solidarity and that we can live in peace together.
- A small church plant will be having their first baptism service!
- A church about 75 miles north of New York City is sponsoring a Community Arts Show. The theme is “Hope and Healing: Ten Years After September 11th.” The award is a $200 donation to the September 11 Memorial Fund in the awardee’s name.
- Churches all over, including Trinity Wesleyan in Central, S.C., will be hosting memorial services, breakfasts/bbq’s, and events honoring local fire departments, rescue personnel, military personnel and law enforcement officers.
