Borderview Christian
Borderview Christian Church, 1338 Bristol Highway, Elizabethton, will celebrate the 34th annual God and Country Day on Sunday, July 2. This celebration had its start during the Gulf War in 1990 as a community boost for patriotism. This year’s morning worship at 10:45 a.m. will feature the adult choir ministry musical, “Under God,” and a special veteran recognition.
The day will continue at 5 p.m. with a community block party with inflatables for the kids, followed at 6 p.m. by a free box supper, featuring BBQ or fried chicken as the entree. A wonderful gospel concert by the local group, LIFTED, will begin at 7:30 p.m. Fireworks will begin at dusk.
All guests can register for door prizes awarded throughout the evening. Everyone is welcome to attend this free event.
