Reconciliation Metropolitan Community Church is about people, not a place. We gather every Sunday morning at 10am at 3864 Benjamin Dr. NE, Grand Rapids, MI. We invite you to join with us as we strive to follow the example of Jesus in this world in which we live in.
We remember the many brave men and women who have given their lives through the history of our country to protect us from danger and harm.
We salute all those who served in the military, the police and the fire departments.
We also remember all those who sustained injury in mind and/or body in the course of their service.
In whom we live, love, and have our being, We take time today to uplift the heavy hearts Of those for whom Memorial Day Is more than a mere diversion, But is, instead, a painful time of reflection, lamentation And enduring bereavement.
This day we remember with compassion Your children who have lost their lives to war; Incline us to honor their memory, dear Lord, With a sincere pledge to seek peace And nonviolent solutions to world conflict.
We pray for the safety of those entering military service, And succor for the many returning from combat With wounded bodies, Or minds Sickened by the sight and sounds of war.
Our prayers also extend, Great Comforter, To those who still wait and pray Day by anxious day For that precious moment of reunion With a distant family member, friend, or loved one.
And to others – whose reunion has been sorrowfully delayed Until that Heavenly homecoming with Christ In the fullness of time – We offer the gentle assurance Of your promise to all believers, “ Blessed are those who mourn: for they shall be comforted.”
