Friday June 9, 2006—Come celebrate with your family the growth of the Army family. At 10:30 a.m. the cadets of the Visionaries Session will receive their academic awards on the lawn of Crestmont. This celebratory service is the traditional beginning of a wonderful weekend of praise and worship together.
You are invited to stay all day on the Crestmont Campus. You can purchase lunch and dinner tickets in advance by completing a commissioning registration form. Following lunch the Bible Bowl finals will continue, along with many activities of fun and fellowship for the whole family.
