A STARS SPANGLED CELEBRATION
Wednesday, October 22nd, 9PM ET
Did you know that America has seen darker days in the past than those we are facing right now? Two hundred years ago we were in the midst of the War of 1812. The U.S. Capitol and the White House were burning. Average citizens like us hung their heads in shame…but God! Yes God intervened and a series of events occurred that saved America and led to the writing of our National
Anthem: The Star Spangled Banner. And 200 years later our flag is still there!
Learn about the forgotten story of the great acts of faith behind our National Anthem. Few citizens have ever heard the story of how God used ordinary Christians to do extraordinary things during the desperate days of 1814. You will be informed, inspired, and challenged to believe God for another divine intervention in our great nation that He has established. You will also be encouraged to:
• Pray for the upcoming election.
• Prepare by registering themselves and others to vote.
• Participate by casting their vote on November 4th.
Don’t miss this historic event!

Liberty Football is Back!
Turner Gill begins his third season as Liberty’s head coach, after leading the Flames a pair of Big South Conference titles during his first two years at the helm. Saturday’s game will be the Flames’ first-ever gridiron matchup with North Carolina and the first time Liberty has ever faced a nationally ranked FBS foe. The Tar Heels enter the contest ranked No. 23 in both the AP and USA Today Coaches Polls.
Liberty, which has captured six Big South Conference championships in the last seven years, is picked to finish second in the conference in 2014. Senior cornerback Kenny Scott is one tackle shy of 100 for his career entering the North Carolina game.
Liberty closed out the 2013 season with five straight victories. Junior Josh Woodrum is already climbing numerous Liberty career lists as he enters his third season as Liberty’s starting quarterback. Kicker Avery Echols and safety Avery “A.J.” James are the true freshmen most likely to see playing time for the Flames on Saturday.
