Middle Valley Church of God, located at 1703 Thrasher Pike in Hixson, will have a Celebration of Our Freedom service this Sunday.  The service will begin at 10:30 a.m. in the church auditorium.  

Patriotic music will be offered by the church choir along with special presentations to veterans in the service.  Retired Navy Chaplain Bobby Williams will be the special guest speaker for the celebration.

  

In addition to these festivities, Louis H. Erwin will be honored as a survivor of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis on July 30, 1945.  Erwin, one of 316 survivors, spent four days and five nights in the ocean as he watched fellow sailors perish from sharks and injuries.  

Pastor Mitch McClure stated, "It is a great honor to have Mr. Erwin attending our church and an even greater honor to recognize him as a survivor of the sinking of the USS Indianapolis.  He is one of many WWII veterans that continue to grace our church and community.  We are pleased to be able to honor him on July 1 along with all of our veterans.  The sacrifices of these veterans gives each of us the opportunity to worship God as we please."

A meal will follow the service in the church Family Life Center.  All are invited to participate in this special service. For additional information, please contact Pastor Mitch McClure at 843-1539.
