Honoring their service

Mount Bethel United Methodist Church in Sunset set aside the month of July to honor the church’s men and women who served in the U.S. Armed Forces. Each Sunday during the church’s worship service, a patriotic song was sung. The church also collected shirts to be sent to the “Hawaiian Shirts for Deployed Soldiers” project. On the last Sunday of July, the church had two veterans, Bobby Carver and Carl Porter, wear Hawaiian shirts as a Pastor Dick Waldrop prayed for the soldiers who would receive the collected shirts. In all, the church gathered 24 shirts and also some money for postage.
