Antioch-Lithonia Missionary Baptist Church and Pastor James C. Ward honored military veterans with a special program on Nov. 10, ahead of Veterans’ Day. The program was part of the church’s 150-year anniversary, which has included several special events the church has held throughout this year.
Sunday’s 10:30 a.m. worship celebration featured Lithonia High School’s JROTC Color Guard Unit, a tribute to fallen soldiers, a presentation of special awards, was followed by a skydiving team exhibition. Congregation members gathered outside the church to witness the show, which was performed during clear skies on a brilliant sunny day.
Antioch-Lithonia Missionary Baptist Church is located at 2152 Rock Chapel Road, Lithonia.
