Today is the Fourth of July, or Independence Day, here in America. Millions of people will be celebrating our nation and the wonderful heritage of freedom we enjoy here in America. As believers, let’s stop today and thank God for the nation we’re blessed to live in. And let’s also pray for the distressing direction, like moral relativism, this nation is headed in, asking God to bring repentance and a return to the authority of his Word and the gospel of Jesus Christ.

All of us should remember this Psalm, “Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord” (Psalm 33:12) and pray that it would be true of our nation.

“In God We Trust” at the Ark Encounter

To give our Fourth of July guests an extra-special holiday, we’re hosting “In God We Trust,” a great event at the Ark Encounter—and we encourage you to join us for it.

Many people travel to have fun with their family for this all-American weekend. And to give our Fourth of July guests an extra-special holiday, we’re hosting “In God We Trust,” a great event (beginning tomorrow and going through Sunday) at the Ark Encounter, located south of Cincinnati—and we encourage you to join us for it.

You’ll hear a concert from the popular Southern gospel group, Steve Hess & Southern Salvation, music from acclaimed guitarist Ray Cummins, a piano selection from Huntley Brown, and a comedy set with family-friendly comedians Brad Stine and Rick Green, as they perform their “Constitutional Comedy” set. You’ll also enjoy a dramatic recitation of Genesis 5:1–9:19 by “The Bible Memory Man,” Tom Meyer. He will be accompanied by a dramatic visualization of the biblical text from our talented resident artist Oscar Nava. All these special events, through Sunday, are included with your Ark Encounter admission. Now that’s a great deal!

And be sure to join us for our family cookout BBQ buffet, including grilled burgers, hot dogs, pulled pork, and traditional cookout side dishes. We hope you can join us this weekend as it’s going to be a great time of faith, family, fun, and food.

Veterans are Free Today Through Sunday

All US Armed Forces veterans receive free admission to either or both attractions July 4–7 as our gift to say “thank you” for your sacrifice.

And, just as a reminder, all US Armed Forces veterans receive free admission to either or both attractions July 4–7 as our gift to say “thank you” for your sacrifice. But if you can’t make it one of those days, we always extend a 20% discount to retired members of the US Armed Forces and veterans on their ticket purchase at either attraction (not available online).

We’re also pleased to offer all active-duty members of the United States Armed Forces (Army, Air Force, Navy, Marine Corps, and Coast Guard) a 20% discount off the purchase of up to five general admission tickets (adult or senior) with current military photo ID (not available online).

When you visit the Creation Museum and the Ark Encounter, be sure to let us know if you’re active military or a veteran so we can thank you and then support you by offering a discount. Plan your visit at ArkEncounter.com and CreationMuseum.org.

Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
Ken
