The Trinity Christian Church and School is preparing to put on their 30th annual Gods and Nation event, honoring veterans and soldiers for their service to their country.

The school's elementary students will be hosting the event, which runs on Thursday, November 7th at 7 p.m. at the Trinity Church Sanctuary.

Brad Ellison, the assistant superintendent of academics at the school, said the students will be involved in the ceremonies that honor veterans, which will include song and prayer.

"We like to bring [the veterans] up by their branch of service," he said, "and our elementary students sing the theme song from each branch of service, and then we pray for each of the veterans."

Ellison said he believes the event is a wonderful experience for the veterans as well as the children. He also uses the time as a learning experience for his students, to teach them about patriotism and respect.

"We try to teach our young people that it is part of who we are as a Christian society," he said, "that it is our job to represent our country, to uplift our country and our leaders and our nation."

He said he believes that events like this help children recognize the sacrifice that veterans and soldiers give to aid and protect their country.

The event is open to the public. Ellison advised that participants arrive early to get good seating. The Trinity Church Sanctuary is located at 7002 Canton Ave.
