About a year ago…
It was a beautiful Jefferson morning on a Saturday in June and a pickup truck towing a trailer filled with stage equipment pulled up the Gazebo by our Library. With the help of some volunteers, a sound and light system began to take shape on the lawn of the Municipal Building. As the day wore on, members of “Force For Good” and “Spirit” began to arrive and music started to reverberate through the afternoon.
As the day faded, folks started arriving with beach chairs, blankets and food to share looking for fellowship and the opportunity to join together and sing for the glory of God as one. The night was uplifting, inspiring and thoroughly enjoyed by all who attended and we were so thankful to the over 200 people who were there. This Evening of Inspirational Music Under the Stars grew out of the 2016 National Day of Prayer collaboration between the pastors of the Freedom Church, the Grace Church and the Milton United Methodist Church as they looked for opportunities to continue to serve together.
Back by popular demand, an Evening of Inspirational Music Under the Stars II will be held on Saturday, August 5, 2017 at 6:00 pm. Three Praise Bands will offer music:
Force for Good – Freedom Church
The Grace Band – Grace Church
Spirit – Milton United Methodist Church
Admission is Free!
(A collection opportunity will be offered to support our local food pantries)
Please support this unique community outreach with your prayers and presence. Pray that the Spirit touches hearts! Family-friendly; tell your neighbors and friends! Bring blankets, lawn chairs, food and drink (no alcohol) and your voice! Get here early! Spread the Word!
