Celebrate America with us on June 28 at 10:00a!

Celebrate America! is just 2 weeks away. This outstanding patriotic service will feature heart-soaring music from our Sanctuary Choir and Orchestra, special recognition of veterans, and a message from Brian McCroskey, former Army Ranger and our guest speaker.

The successful movie “Black Hawk Down” is based on an Army Ranger Company’s mission in Mogadishu, Somalia. On October 3, 1993, their in-and-out mission to capture a warlord turned into a rescue operation when a Black Hawk helicopter was shot down in the middle of the city. Brian was part of a small group of Rangers that fought at the first crash site to recover fallen comrades. He was shot in the arm. In the midst of enemy fire, God was there. Soul restored, Brian dedicated his life to the Lord while in Somalia.

Come and Celebrate America with us and hear more of Brian’s incredible story as we give thanks for the many freedoms we enjoy.
