Flying the Flag... The flag of the United States of America, is a symbol of freedom and liberty to which Americans pledge their allegiance. It is displayed by local communities, companies, churches, school districts, federal agencies and private residences. The flag that our church flies today was flown over the US capitol in honor Angelo Tolios’ 25th anniversary of his entry into the US on 8/23/1951. His daughter, Mrs. Joan Berg, has donated the flag to the church. Please call the office, if you would like to donate a flag that has a special meaning to you and your family.
