The First Presbyterian church invites Great Bend and Barton County communities to a “Music for Mission” concert which will be held at 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 30,  in the First Presbyterian Church sanctuary, 24th and Washington. A variety of instrumental and vocal musical groups representing a diverse make-up of churches located in Great Bend will join together for an afternoon of musical praise to God.
Donations will be received at the door and will go to Barton County Emergency Aid, with a small percentage to the Presbyterian Crisis Management program, said Carol Woodmansee, chairman of the Mission/Evangelism Team, Presbyterian Church.
The music program will include the Presbyterian Singers from the host church; a Christian street musicians’ band,  “Rondalla Christiana ReflecSion,” from the Iglesia Adventista, a Spanish language Seventh Day Adventist Church, who will sing and accompany themselves on their guitars; a vocal duet from The First Christian Church; a pianist from First Presbyterian; two orchestra students from Great Bend High School, who will perform on the cello and viola, one representing the First Street Church of God in Hoisington; and an organ/piano duet from Great Bend’s First United Methodist Church.    
A reception will follow the concert in the church parlor.  All churches and persons in the community are invited.
