Lakewood Baptist to honor military, veterans
GAINESVILLE - Lakewood Baptist Church in Gainesville will present its annual patriotic celebration Sunday, June 29, to honor the nation’s military and veterans.
Services will be held at 9:30 and 11:00 to salute active, reserve and retired members of the armed forces. Congressman Doug Collins (USAFR) is the keynote speaker.
An orchestra and choir will present the military service anthems and an array of patriotic music numbers as branches of services are saluted.
“Lakewood will sing and celebrate some things in America, pray about some things concerning America, all the while pointing folks to worship Jesus,” says Lakewood’s Bill Risinger.
Lakewood’s senior pastor, Dr. Tom Smiley, adds “This is a special day in which we give praise to God for all He has given, especially the blessing of a free country where we can worship Him without fear. In additional, we express gratitude for those who have and who are serving us in military service.”
Additional information and a live stream of the services will be at www.lakewoodlife.org .
