UPCOMING EVENTS
Collingsworth Family -
Gospel Music
6/17/17  7:00 p.m.

The Collingsworth Family ministry has
been featured on the nation’s largest
gospel music syndicated radio
program, The Gospel Greats with Paul
Heil as well as on Daniel Britt &
Friends on XM/SIRIUS Satellite Radio’s
Enlighten. Their music is regularly
featured on Enlighten, GMT (Gospel
Music Television), The DayStar
Television Network, and has also been
featured in one hour prime-time
specials on the INSP Television
Network. The Collingsworth Family, at
the personal invitation of Bill & Gloria
Gaither, appeared on the newest
Homecoming Series taping filmed at
the Grand Ole Opry in Nashville, TN.
They have also been added as
regulars on many of the Gaither
Homecoming Concerts, making
appearances with Gaithers in some of
their largest venues in the US and
Canada. Their personal appearance
schedule shows the broad appeal their
family emphasis has, performing in all
types of venues across the US, the
Cayman Islands, and recently in
Sweden.

The rapid expansion they have seen
occur with the transition to an all-
concert ministry is a direct result of the
emphasis they have placed on the
power of prayer. Each Tuesday
evening, they hold a private prayer
meeting in their home for the specific
purpose of praying for the salvation of
their children and the expansion of
their ministry. Since the beginning of
these weekly prayer meetings in 2000,
the doors of opportunity for ministry
have opened to them, crossing all
evangelical denominational
boundaries. Phil & Kim’s entire
purpose is to give the talent God has
loaned them back to their Creator as a
sacrifice of praise.
Adam Crabb, The Bowling Family,
Terah Crabb Penhollow -  
Gospel Music
7/21/17 6:00 p.m.

Adam's musicianship along with his
powerful vocal delivery is true to the
style that the Crabb Family fan has
come to expect and enjoy. As you
would expect, he is committed to
ministry and considers this "life" a
calling instead of a career. But one
notices quickly that Adam is a
perfectionist when it comes to his
music. He possesses immense talent
and passion that is uncommon,
impossible to teach, and simply given
to a few as a special gift straight from
Heaven! To watch him play the
harmonica is a pure delight. His
reputation as a studio musician is
impressive, but his "home" is truly the
"live" performance. He electrifies a
large auditorium with that unbelievably
small harmonica. This is a must see!

The
Bowling Family has appeared on
the Gaither Homecoming series
concerts and videos, TBN, during
Gospel Music Week’s Dove Awards, at
GMA’s Seminar in the Rockies and
numerous other major events. Their
debut release, Faith To Believe, has
garnered a record four number one
songs (“We Have A Saviour,” “Your
Cries Have Awoken The Master,” “A
Miracle Today” and “Notified”), as well
as the 2008 Song of the Year (“Your
Cries Have Awoken The Master). The
Bowling Family combines talent,
sincerity and experience to create a
memorable concert experience. Their
goal for the evening is to usher in the
presence of God and celebrate the
Christian message. They feel
privileged and honored to enjoy the
freedom to honor Christ with any and
all of their abilities.

Terah Crabb-Penhollow is a Grammy
nominated, multi-Dove award winning
singer.  However, the awards,
success, and stellar accomplishments
that Terah has been blessed to enjoy
are not what one remembers about
Terah. Terah is famous for her smile,
her loving concern for all, and her
ability to sing from her soul with the
authority that we rarely see in a
vocalist.  She owns a song while she
sings it, and she owns the audience
with that unassuming personality.  
Terah exudes talent, but beyond that,
she has a special calling during this
season of her life.

Michael Combs - New Dove
Brothers - Squire Parsons -
& The Griffiths
Gospel Music
7/22/17 6:00pm
AND...
SQUIRE PARSONS

On February 6, 1989, something
wonderful happened! Jesus Christ
became
Michael Combs' personal
Savior, and Michael Combs became a
born-again child of God. Jesus put a
new song in Michael’s heart. What
terrific news that is for those of us who
love him and enjoy his music. It is this
personal relationship with the Lord
Jesus Christ that shines through
Michael’s testimony, music and
personality. His love for Jesus reflects
to all, and anybody who meets him can’
t help but notice that Michael is
enjoying every step of his journey with
his Savior and Friend.

Michael Combs’ style is unique, as is
everything else about him. He has an
acute love for the Lamb of God, which
bubbles over into everything he says
and does. God not only powerfully
uses Michael Combs in singing, but
He also shines through Michael’s
guitar and piano playing. Whether
singing, playing the guitar, or playing
the piano, Michael faithfully shares God’
s message in song, holding strong to
his faith and belief that all he needs is
found in Almighty God.

The
NEW DOVE BROTHERS - In 1998 a
quartet was formed that took the
Southern Gospel industry by storm.
Bringing to the stage an excitement
and a style that had not been seen
since the glory days of gospel music.
Now that McCray Dove, Tony Peace
and Wesley Smith have joined together
to form the New Dove Brothers it looks
like history is repeating itself. McCray
and Tony are known as two of the most
exciting performers in the world of
southern gospel music. Wesley Smith
ties it all together with his smooth high
tenor voice. The New Dove Brothers
are committed to the cause of Christ
and to keeping that classic southern
gospel style and sound. With songs
like Get Away Jordan and Didn't It Rain
you can't help but to clap your hands
and tap your feet and when The New
Dove Brothers begin to sing the great
hymns of the church your heart will be
reminded why these songs are
timeless. If you love harmony and high
energy then you don't want to miss a
New Dove Brothers concert.

The Grascals -
Bluegrass Music
10/21/17 7:00 p.m.
The Grascals make music that is
entirely relevant to the here and now,
yet immersed in traditional values of
soul and musicianship. It’s a unique
sound that has earned three Grammy®
nominations and two Entertainer of the
Year awards from the International
Bluegrass Music Association, as well
as national media attention that seems
to perpetually elude acts entrenched in
niche genres. Such appearances
include The Tonight Show with Jay
Leno, Fox & Friends, The Late Late
Show with Craig Ferguson, and CBS’
The Talk. All the while, stages that
represent the strongest bastions of
tradition continually welcome them, as

President Barack Obama’s inaugural
ball at the Smithsonian.

Lip Sync Battle -
11/4/17  Time - 7:00 p.m.

Area First Responders will be
challenging each other in hopes of, not
only taking home the coveted 1st Place
Winner trophy, but a sizeable cash
award for their own department.  There
will also be cash awards for 2nd, 3rd,
4th, and 5th place winners.

The premise is simple – participants
(groups of 4 or more) mime the vocals
of popular music while performing on
stage in front of an appreciative
audience. The fun comes from seeing
just how enthused our local firemen,
EMT’s, policemen, etc., are to impress
the crowd and win a prize. The great
thing about a lip sync is that you don’t
actually need any real talent, just a
desire to perform.  We strongly
encourage creative costumes because
the crowd is there to enjoy a show and
their response will be considered in
the selection of winners.  Everything is
in the spirit of fun and all performances
(lyrics, dancing, costumes, etc.) MUST
be “family-friendly”.

The Hoppers -
Gospel Music
11/18/17 7:00 p.m.

The Hoppers have been a mainstay in
the field of gospel music for more than
50 years. Claude and Connie Hopper
began making their way around North
America on a bus in 1957 with The
Hopper Brothers & Connie.

Over the years, the Hopper Brothers
and Connie welcomed and parted with
musicians and singers who went on to
acclaimed service in the gospel music.
Eventually Connie and Claude’s two
sons, Dean and Michael, joined them
full-time as lead vocalist and drummer
to form The Hoppers. Kim Greene’s
powerhouse soprano voice was added
to the group in 1989, after she and
Dean were married.

With classic family harmonies that stay
true their southern gospel roots, their
sound has progressed to new heights
with each recording. Throughout the
‘90s, the group began to see their
songs achieve widespread success
with number one Southern Gospel hits
including: “Milk and Honey,” “Here I
Am,” “Anchor to the Power of the
Cross,” and ”Mention My Name.” Since
that time, The Hoppers have received
numerous accolades including Mixed
Group of the Year from the Heart’s
Aflame Awards, Diamond Awards,
Singing News Fan Awards, and the
Southern Gospel Music Association.

The Hoppers have been nominated for
GMA Dove Award four times, and in
1998 Connie was presented with the
prestigious Marvin Norcross award,
which is given to those with excellence
in “Devotion to family, service to
Church, and contributions to the
Gospel Music Industry.” Singing News
Fan Award for Musician of the Year has
been given to Michael, and Kim has
consistently been awarded the Singing
News Fan Award for Female Vocalist
and Favorite Soprano for well over a
decade.
