C12 Memorial Day Message



Memorial Day…Never Forget


"Though an army besiege me, my heart will not fear; though war break out against me, even then will I be confident. One thing I ask of the LORD, this is what I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to seek him in his temple." Psalm 27:3-4



Each year on Memorial Day, we have the privilege of giving our Lord thanks for the men and women who have given their lives to protect the freedoms we enjoy in this constitutional republic under God. We remember these brave servants, their families, and their selfless sacrifice that, in some small way, reminds us of the ultimate sacrifice made on our behalf by our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Please join with us this weekend in asking our sovereign Lord to bless their families, fill their homes with His Holy Spirit, and strengthen them to face each day with the knowledge of their loved ones' commitment to serving this nation and way of life.

On this holiday, we at The C12 Group also appreciate our nation's more than 2 million active and reserve military personnel and 23 million veterans. Included in these ranks are hundreds of C12 members and Chairs across America, including Rod Smith (Army Captain), Greg King (Army Colonel), Mike Sipe (Army Ranger Captain), Ralph Miller (Navy Fighter Pilot), Tom Rains (Army Air Lt Colonel), Steve VanOotegehm (Marine infantry officer), Bill Sitter (Army Captain), Jim Steele (Air Force Colonel), and Curt Kemp (Navy Rear Admiral).

On this special weekend of remembrance, may God richly bless these patriots who served this nation for the same reason America's Founder's did... that we may continue to represent to the world the best of moral free enterprise and religious liberty in a truly free society that honors our sovereign Lord and Creator, Jesus Christ!

Most businesspeople find themselves extremely busy, yet unproductive. It’s easy to get caught up in day-to-day work, work really hard, and still miss the mark. Satisfied customers, engaged employees, and prosperous owners don’t happen by chance. You must have a plan... Most businesspeople, including your competitors, don’t take time to plan well. It’s a weakness for them – and an opportunity for you. - Stephen Covey
