EGLIN A.F.B. — The construction of the 7th Special Forces Group Airborne Liberty Chapel has been completed and a ribbon cutting ceremony is 3 p.m. March 25 at the 7th Special Forces Group Airborne compound.

The 7th's command and ministry teams invite all soldiers, families and friends to attend. The event includes an open house tour of the facility, music by Dr. David Ott, an internationally recognized composer and conductor, and refreshments by Magnolia Grill.

The first chapel service is 10 a.m. March 31, Easter Sunday. The Protestant service includes children’s church and a nursery, followed by an Easter egg hunt and refreshments for attendees.

"With Easter being one of the three most popular attendance days of the church, this should be a great day to open the chapel up for services," Maj. Tony Petros, chaplain, said.
