Salute to veterans

All veterans and service men and women on active duty are invited to let the church and patriots honor and thank them for their service to the country. The program will include sacred and secular music.
According to Connie Samuels, director of Special Ministries, more than 60 members of the church have been rehearsing for the show for at least six months. "We are traveling back in time to honor our veterans from the Revolutionary War to the present," she said.
