Isle of Palms First United Methodist Church Witting Tree – November 7, 2021

Please join IOP Methodist Church for one of our special services to honor Veterans and to be part of the Witting Tree Awareness Program on Sunday, November 7th.

“Witting” is an adjective meaning to be conscious or aware of the full facts of a situation. We will be placing dog tags on one of our trees on the front lawn after each service. Each tag will represent one of the Veterans who takes their life every 80 minutes. Church services will be held at 8:30, 9:30, and 11:00am on November 7th at our church, 12 21st Avenue, Isle of Palms.

Please contact Jen Robertson, Director of Outreach and Youth Ministries, with questions, jenrobertson@iopmethodist.com

Vietnam Veterans Day Patriot Point

Monday, 29 March, is National Vietnam War Veterans Day. That date in 1973, the Military Assistance Command – Vietnam (MACV) was disbanded and the last U.S. combat troops departed the Republic of Vietnam.

On Monday, Patriots Point will honor Vietnam veterans with free admission to the museum, including for their immediate families. And, it is a day we should especially recognize the war’s veterans among us who fought on land and sea and in the air.

I hope that you can all spend some time at Patriots Point on Monday to make the day special. For all vets, you are invited to wear your uniforms, or articles of your uniforms, to commemorate the day and honor our brothers and sisters.

Patriots Point will be open from 9 AM to 6:30 PM. Our safety protocols remain in place – masking and social distancing
