The EBC RAs participated in a flag ceremony in the Sunday morning worship service on May 24th, 2015. The names of Jefferson County veterans killed in action in Vietnam were read as the RAs folded the American flag. The flag was then presented to the church to be used in future services. The boys also reminded the congregation about flag etiquette for Memorial Day and every day.
