Smithville United Methodist Church Honors
Heroes among us -- Who Serve us Well
Too often we complain about those who serve us. Too little
do we commend them for serving well. Smithville United Methodist Church gave
special recognition and honor to all those who serve and serve us well.
Thank you for a job well done!

I BELIEVE IN THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA AS GOVERNMENT
OF THE PEOPLE, BY THE PEOPLE, AND FOR THE PEOPLE; WHOSE JUST POWERS ARE
DERIVED FROM THE CONSENT OF THE GOVERNED.
A DEMOCRACY IN A REPUBLIC, A SOVEREIGN NATION OF MANY
SOVEREIGN STATES; A PERFECT UNION, ONE INSEPARABLE; ESTABLISHED UPON
THESE PRINCIPLES OF FREEDOM, EQUALITY, JUSTICE AND HUMANITY FOR WHICH
AMERICAN PATRIOTS SACRIFICED THEIR LIVES AND FORTUNES. I THEREFORE BELIEVE
IT IS MY DUTY TO MY COUNTRY TO LOVE IT, TO SUPPORT ITS CONSTITUTION, TO OBEY
ITS LAWS TO RESPECT ITS FLAG, AND TO DEFEND IT AGAINST ALL ENEMIES.
Thank you Pastor A. Frederick Walz, Jr. and the congregation of the
Smithville United Methodist Church for recognizing the Ladies and Gentlemen
that Serve because they care.
