Gospel Sing is Saturday at amphitheater

The third annual Gospel Sing will begin at 6 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Rushville Riverside Park Amphitheater and the community is invited to come out to this inspiring event.

This year’s Gospel Sing is expected to run approximately two hours. At the conclusion, Holy Communion will be offered to all those that wish to partake.

The non-denominational service will give people their own private time to think about what they want to reflect on during the music without words and sermons that tell them what to think. It will be an authentic evening where they will let the Gospel music do its own work in transforming lives of those who join them.

“When words fall short, music has a way to touch much deeper,” said Rev. Carol Wiley, who serves on the organizing committee. “It’s a healing balm, a salve. It’s a way to touch people.”

Organizers hope the musical experience will help transform people with, “an oasis of calm.”

Come early, bring a picnic dinner, lawn chairs and even blankets if there will be a chill in the air. The Gospel Sing is free and the public is invited and encouraged to attend this uplifting event.

Rev. Wiley will welcome everyone to the Gospel Sing. A patriotic opening will be performed by Scott Evans. Performers during the evening will include the Plum Creek Praise Bank and Vocals, Anna Smith, the Kelly Family, Carol Tressler singing, “You Raised Me Up,” followed by Scott Wildey, including a duet by Wildey and Tressler.

John Mikkah Thompson will also be featured during the evening. John’s performance will be followed by Annie Frost and the group Harmony also performing. “Surely the Presence” will be the communion song for those who wish to partake. The order of the performers is subject to change.
