Community members will be celebrating our freedom in a God blessed nation with music and prayer. This is an inspiring event each year as people gather on the green (almost always good weather) to give thanks and pray for this nation, our citizens, our leaders, our pastors, our churches, our families, our first responders, our military and our future generations.
Anybody that has been in this area for any length of time knows about the great music of Sheree, Ron and “Servant’s Heart and Hands” and there will be a guest appearance by Delegate Todd Gilbert who has shown time and again that he stands for the Christian values that have made this nation great.
Front Royal and this part of the Valley often seem like an oasis in a declining culture as free people can still gather on the town green and give thanks to a mighty God that has protected and preserved this nation for over 240 years.
It is a real treat and a blessing to be able to participate in a prayer event like this and all are welcome and invited.
Become a part of celebrating traditional marriage, protecting the sanctity of life and honoring our unique Constitutional Republic.
