Hundreds attended the Independence Day celebration and service held at our Northport Campus. Following a continental breakfast, worshippers sang patriotic songs, heard the Declaration of Independence read aloud, acknowledged our veterans and were inspired by the message of Jason McGuire, President of New Yorker’s Family Research Foundation. The service ended with a beautiful song featuring our Daughters of Zion tambourine and flag teams and the backdrop of our magnificent flag. Americans were encouraged to pursue true freedom, dependent on our sovereign Lord.Our fathers’ God, to Thee, Author of liberty, to Thee we sing; Long may our land be bright With freedom’s holy light; Protect us by Thy might, great God, our King.
– “My Country, ‘Tis of Thee” by Samuel F. Smith
