A Tribute to America Concert
A Tribute To America is a stirring patriotic concert featuring handbells, strings, brass, piano and more. It also includes an inspiring rendition of the flag folding ceremony. As the flag is folded, a narration of each fold is read, reminding us of the sacredness of all our flag represents. Throughout the concert, tribute is not only paid to our nation but to the principles and ideals through which our founding fathers created a form of government that had "no model on the face of this earth." A strong emphasis rests on the principles that America was built by a firm reliance on God; that life is a sacred gift of God, because we are created in the image of God; that liberty is not the right to do what we want, but rather the power to do what we ought. Happiness is found as we obey God, the One who gives us richly all things to enjoy. Our founding fathers believed in these principles and honored God, the Giver of these rights, and established our government upon the foundation of Biblical freedom.
