Every flag has a name…
At Sagemont Church, we honor those who have bestowed the greatest love gift one can give…his life. For those brave men and women who have paid the ultimate sacrifice for freedom and liberty, we will be transforming our grounds into a memorial garden of 38,000 flags. The flags will be planted in memory of every fallen Texas service member from the creation of the Republic of Texas in 1836 to the present. This memorial garden will be a beacon to the entire Houston area; especially for those who have lost a loved one to battle and wish to reflect and remember. There will also be several displays setup around the church campus to honor our fallen heroes, including an opportunity to personalize the experience with the name of your fallen loved one. The outdoor displays including the flag garden will be open from dawn to dusk May 28 through June 2. The indoor displays inside the church’s main Lobby will be open from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm May 28 through June 2.
