Sisters & Company Tomorrow Night-Cancelled

Due to the heavy rains we have had in the past two days and the fact more rain is forecast tomorrow we are cancelling the Sisters & Company concert/worship tomorrow night (Saturday, August 1).  The event will be rescheduled and the date announced soon.  Thanks for helping us get the word out.

Sisters & Co. Tomorrow Night

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.

Battle Creek Band - This Saturday

One of our most favorite bands will be returning again this year to entertain us with their down home country sound.  This talented, versatile band gets everyone's feet to tapping before the evening is over.

But country is not all they play.  The following is from their website:
Variety is the spice of life. So when a stranger walks in to a Battle Creek show, they may be surprised to hear The Beatles, Creedence Clearwater Revival and Elvis sandwiched in between some Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard, Buck Owens & Waylon JenningsBattle Creek is first and foremost a "Country" band, but they enjoy performing and have been influenced by music from many genres. Nobody blends Country, Rock n' Roll, Gospel & Comedy like Battle Creek. It's The Grand Ole Opry, a Sock Hop, Hee Haw & Sunday Morning - all rolled into one. There's something for just about everybody - within reason. Although you may not hear any Hip Hop, Heavy Metal, or Rap - well ... You're Welcome.
