Free Christian concert planned

Last summer, I along with several others helped the Todd Becker Foundation with an event where we blocked of part of the downtown in Gothenburg. The event had an attendance of about 600 people. We agreed we needed to do something like this again.

We just were able to have three bands—Vota, Eternity Focus and Orphans Cry—and a speaker from Rachel’s Challenge come to Gothenburg on June 22. The program was to have several worship bands, a speaker and an altar call, with counselors available to talk with people at this time also. We had 500 to 600 people come out even with a rain and hail storm in the middle of it. We did end up getting rained out and Vota and the speaker where unable to go on.

We will be having Tenth Avenue North, Jefferson Bethke and The Digital Age come and put on a free event for the area on Sunday, Aug. 18, starting at 5:30 p.m. by the four plex in Gothenburg.

This event is being put together by men and women from several churches working together. The primary purpose is to bring people into the Body of Christ. Secondly, it is designed to bring people together who are Christians for praise and worship in an open setting outside of our separate church buildings standing together before our Lord lifting up praise to the One Who Saves.

We are excited that every church in Gothenburg has at least one person that is assisting with this event.
