Rescheduled: Elevate Praise with Sisters & Co. at the Linn Park Amphitheater in Martinsville, IL, October 3, 7:00 p.m.
Elevate Praise's “Night Of Worship” which had to be cancelled in August because of rain has been rescheduled to Saturday, October 3, 7:00 p.m. at the Linn Park Amphitheater in Martinsville, Illinois. Sisters & Co. will be leading us in worship.
Raised in a family called to full-time ministry, Carolyn, Amy, and Emily spent their adolescent years traveling to prisons and churches across the country declaring the good news of the gospel. After many years of being labeled "the sisters" when they led worship together, they decided to take on a new name: Sisters & Co. This title reflects their desire to partner with other voices across generations and denominations, creating a family worship experience.
We know the Bible says that God inhabits the praises of His people, so we believe as we worship an atmosphere is created that invites God to work in our lives, community and nation. In this crucial time in our nation’s history and right before possibly the most important election in our lifetime, it is imperative to invite Him to accomplish His Will in our country. Please come to add your voice to the symphony of worship that is created when many come together.
Food will be available for purchase beginning at 6:00 p.m.
For more information, call or text 217-232-3232 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.

You won't want to miss Dennis Stroughmatt & Creole Stomp this Saturday, August 22, 7:00 p.m. at the Amphitheater!
From their website:
A Cajun Creole Honkytonk Party!
Creole Stomp has captured the ears and the feet of Louisiana music fans across North America. Led by French-speaking Creole fiddler and accordionist Dennis Stroughmatt, Creole Stomp keeps listeners enthralled and dancers moving on the floor with a rollicking mix of contemporary blues, swamp pop, and traditional Cajun and zydeco dance tunes.
Creole Stomp shows have become legendary for the heart and passion conveyed from the stage—music with emotion and energy that literally jumps from the band. In fact, over the years the band has become informally known as “The Grateful Dead of Creole Music,” for their well-oiled, dancer-driven, crowd-pleasing marathon jams and improvisation. Traditional Louisiana Cajun two-steps, reels, and waltzes sizzle in the stew along with Creole blues and mazurkas.
A favorite on the Cajun-zydeco dance circuit, the band has also become a celebrated fixture at venues around the United States, ranging from park concerts and theaters to folk and blues festivals. No matter the venue, wherever they come from, and wherever they go, Creole Stomp is a band that knows how to throw a Louisiana party!
What grew out of his Louisiana bayou experience, in 2002 Dennis Stroughmatt along with Robert Russell, created the foundation of what has become the premiere Cajun-Zydeco band in the midwest. They continue to carry the torch...along with new members including Greg Bigler and Doug Hawf...bringing the Louisiana bayou straight to your festival, dance or concert hall.

Carolyn Yoder and her sisters, who blessed us in a beautiful night of worship last year, will be returning this year under a new name, Sisters & Co.
Raised in a family called to full-time ministry, Carolyn, Amy, and Emily spent their adolescent years traveling to prisons and churches across the country declaring the good news of the gospel. After many years of being labeled "the sisters" when they led worship together, they have decided to take on a new name: Sisters & Co. This title reflects their desire to partner with other voices across generations and denominations, creating a family worship experience. If you love tight harmonies, powerful worship anthems, and an environment where an encounter with God is the expectation, please bring your family and join us for this special evening. (Prayer ministry will be available during and after worship).
Sisters & Co are artists of VWorship and actively involved in the Vineyard Church of Central IL.
