GCA Veterans Day Celebration Returns for 2021

It was a fantastic day on the GCA campus as the GCA Veterans Day Celebration resumed as a live event on Friday, November 5!  Students in grades K-12 displayed recognition and honor of our nation's veterans through performance in song and dramatic presentation.

We were thrilled to host one of our largest groups of veterans for the processional with over 125 veterans being escorted to their seats by GCA students.  This touching tribute to our honored guests is a beautiful tradition to begin each year's program and an important component of the service.  One of the WWII Veterans in attendance remarked after the program that, "This is how school should be. You know the kids are going to be all right if this is where they are getting their education.”

Pastor Bobby Lewis, Senior Pastor at Grace Baptist Church, taught a powerful message titled, "Freedom Isn't Free" from the book of Galatians during the performance.  

Thank you to all the veterans who joined us in person or via livestream.  Your sacrifice and dedication to protecting our freedoms is not taken lightly.
