We invite you to our 28th Celebration! Over the last year, we have had a great time singing throughout Missouri, Iowa and Oklahoma. Even with the challenges of having to replace a motor in the Big Purple Bus we have been blessed to continue to travel and share the gospel. We’re constantly amazed at the opportunities that the Lord opens for us both in the venues we sing in but especially the relationships we continue to make and grow through the years. It is uplifting to us every time we hear our friends share with us how the Lord is working in their lives. Many times this proves to come to us when we need it most, HE is LORD!
We are pleased to announce that again this year, Duane Garren will be our MC and we are excited again to have the Kellys as our first group of the evening. Over the years, we have enjoyed watching these guys grow from kids to adults now raising their own kids. Those of you that follow the Kellys know what that means, they are a great bunch and we are very pleased to have them start off the evening for us again. They’ll start the evening at 6:30pm and then they’ll be followed by the Mark Trammell Quartet. As many of you will remember we had the Mark Trammell Trio just a few short years ago before they added a bass singer.
This is the first time in 28 years that we have ever invited the same full time professional group back a second time to our homecoming. Now we have had a LOT of GREAT groups through the years that we have appreciated and enjoyed ourselves. There are a lot of great people in those groups but we are excited about having Mark back! Not only is he a quality individual but he is also a Quartet Man who knows how to put together a group. Remember, Mark has himself a great heritage in Southern Gospel Music. He has sang with the Kingsmen, The Cathedrals, Gold City, Greater Vision and of course his own group. The Mark Trammell Quartet is sure to deliver… don’t miss it!
As always, there is no admission charge to this event. We will take up a love offering in an effort to try and cover our expenses for the Homecoming. The reason we haven’t ever charged an admission to our Homecoming is that we don’t want anyone to not be able to come see and hear. So, please come and share this evening with us, we want to see you!
As in years past, you will have the option of having your dinner with us at the event. The Youth from First Freewill Baptist Church will be cooking dinner for you. Grilled hamburgers, hotdogs and much more will be available for you in the High Schools dining hall. This is a great way to grab your evening meal and support the Youth activities of First Freewill Baptist in Hartville.
Even though Galen and Doren are starting to slow down a bit in their advancing years due to their memory starting to go, everyone else is going strong! (Teresa made the webmaster add that part, he didn’t want to, he doesn’t think it’s funny to make fun of Galen and Doren, REALLY it’s not funny that they are getting old) We hope that you will come share with us an evening of celebrating what Lord has allowed us to do for 28 years. Praise HIM! It is our prayer that he will continue to use us for many years to come.
