GREENVILLE – On Sunday, Nov. 8, Cancer Association of Darke County will hold their annual gospel concert fundraiser.
It will be held again this year at Memorial Hall from 3 to 5 p.m. The hall has been remodeled, so this will be an opportunity to hear some great groups sing and also see the revamped hall.
Admission is free. A freewill offering will be taken. All proceeds will go to the cancer association. Refreshments will be served along with a Bake Sale.
Some of the groups performing are: Soul Purpose, based out of Grove City, Ohio, offers a “one-of-a-kind” traditional southern gospel sound that awakens the spirit and excites the soul. Although their ministry began in 1972 as The Sounds of Joy, in 1995 they began a fresh start with the new name Soul Purpose.
“The name just seemed to be the perfect fit as they proclaim “Your Soul is our Purpose!”, said organizers. “It doesn’t take long to realize this group LOVES the Lord. From beginning to end, their program conveys the joy and excitement of having a relationship with Jesus.”
Soul Purpose has carried the Gospel to numerous churches, fairs, conventions and arts festivals in Ohio and surrounding states including the National Quartet Convention, Ohio State Convention of Baptists, and Northern Gospel Singing Convention.
Also singing that afternoon will be Brenda Wise. Brenda lives in West Alexandria, Ohio. Music has been an important part of her life for as long as she can remember.
“She has a beautiful voice and enjoys sharing that gift with others. She is part of the Praise and Worship Team and member of Triumphant Christian Center in Greenville has shared her talent in many churches and events throughout the surrounding in area. She describes herself as a mother, grandmother, animal lover and most importantly a Christian,” said organizers.
The public is invited.
