Allen and Connie Parker of Lamb Watchers Ministries will perform at 11 a.m. Sunday, Oct. 19 at King United Methodist Church, 16th and Odell St.
The Parkers, from Fairbury, Neb., share a strong passion and sing from the heart to reach hearts and souls for Christ, sponsors said. Humor is injected in their program to better illustrate the freedom and enjoyment shared by all who are Christians.
A freewill offering will be taken to help cover their expenses. A fellowship meal will follow the program.
They are one of eight Southern Gospel acts slated to perform at Barton Community College’s Fine Arts Auditorium Friday night and Saturday, Oct. 17 and 18, for the annual Fall Gospel Sings Concert. Music starts at 7 p.m. Friday and continues from 1 to 9 p.m. on Saturday. Admission is free, and concessions will be available on Saturday.
Mary and Lynn Chestnut of Great Bend organized the “sings” a decade ago to share their love of Southern Gospel music.
